LIGHT, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 8/5/19 (Across my desk this morning.)
“When darkness overtakes him, light will come bursting in…” (Psalm 112:4, TLB)
Light Will Come
Anytime you are going through difficult, dark times, know that God already has a plan to bring you through to victory. When you call on His name, when you surrender your circumstances to Him, that’s when His light will come bursting through the darkness. Notice, it’s not going to trickle in, it’s not going to just barely get there. No, like a flood, like the breaking forth of waters, it’s going to come bursting in!
I believe it means that suddenly, you’re going to get well. Suddenly, you will meet the right person. Suddenly, you’re able to pay your house off. Our attitude should be, “My child may be off course, making poor decisions, but I’m expecting a flood of God’s mercy to bring him back.” Or, “My house has been on the market for a year and still hasn’t sold, but I’m expecting a flood of favor to cause it to stand out and sell.”
In the midst of that difficulty, don’t get discouraged. You’re in a prime position to see a flood of God’s goodness. Keep praising Him. Keep thanking Him and stay in faith because His light will break through the darkness!
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for leading and guiding me. Thank You for Your hand of blessing upon my life. I choose to trust You even in the difficult times knowing that You are preparing me for the promises in my future in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
This is a really great thought to consider. When GOD indwells our Faith, the lights go on. Faith is knowing that the vision is of God and it will come to pass and with love and patience be willing to wait for it to happen. And to not be surprised when it does. I use a little tract that I put together on LIGHT that I hand out most every day now. Sometimes even making paper airplanes of them for small children to get them into a home. It has been attached if interested.
So Blocking off yesterday and only considering basics for tomorrow, use today to turn on some light. If you are planning to be in Heaven with God, there will be no night nor darkness there at all. So best to start now in getting adjusted to God’s pure light for it is sure to come and burn up all of the darkness.
We wonder why people go to malls and kill. This week several shootings, many have died. Well, about 50 years ago we allowed GOD to be removed from our schools. No more 10 commandments on the wall, no more prayers, no more singing Christian songs, no more responsibility to a higher power for what we do. Now we have a government full of politicians and a nation full of people who feel there is no GOD to need to answer to. No accountability, no final judgment, no hell or heaven, in fact, no moral anchor of TRUTH at all. So without the LIGHT, in the darkness, what does it matter who does what to whom. No GOD to have to answer to, what does it matter? So it is up to us to let our LIGHT shine as Jesus taught us to. The only LIGHT some will see or Bible some will ever read is YOU. So get plenty of oil, trim your wick and SHINE….
Our little “HOUSE CHURCH” in Kealia is beginning to shine now, keep us in your prayers. Pretty dark around us but the light’s beginning to Glow.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<><
THERE IS BUT ONE CHURCH OF CHRIST JESUS AND ALL WHO LOVE AND OBEY HIM ARE MEMBERS.

Remember, Jesus is the Great Physician:
Hospitals have a phrase they use to describe their mistakes. It’s “preventable patient harm.” That doesn’t sound so terrible. But here’s what it really means: A woman underwent genetic testing and was told she was at high risk for developing the type of cancer that killed her mother. So she had preventive surgery. Her breasts, ovaries, and uterus were removed. Follow-up tests revealed that her doctor had read her genetic test wrong. She was not at risk for cancer. She had all that surgery for nothing. A 51-year-old man needed his right leg amputated because of diabetes. Doctors accidentally amputated his left one and had to learn to live with no legs. A woman was undergoing surgery when doctors accidentally set her on fire. A cauterizing tool set aflame an alcohol-based disinfectant. The woman suffered third-degree burns and eventually died. These kind of horrific blunders are shockingly common. Medical mistakes are the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. They cause more deaths than Alzheimer’s and diabetes combined.
Now, a new study shows that 5% of patients are victims of “preventable patient harm.” The research was published in the journal The BMJ. Findings were based on 70 observational studies involving more than 337,000 patients. The data revealed: 12% of preventable medical errors lead to permanent disability or death. The majority of preventable harm is caused by invasive procedures, medication, and other treatments. Preventable harm adds $9.3 billion to health care costs in the U.S. Another recent study shows that misdiagnosis is a big part of the problem.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine analyzed more than 11,000 medical malpractice claims. They found that up to 160,000 Americans are misdiagnosed each year. And misdiagnoses contribute to up to 80,000 deaths a year. Why do doctors screw up so often? One big reason is burn out…
