Media Reporting vs. God’s Reporting

posted by Ruth Graham

Charles Colson died yesterday.

I have been interested in reading and hearing the media report on it.

The media has reported his death. In a 10 inch column 3/4s of it recounts his transgressions during the Watergate scandal. And there were many. Then they mention his conversion to Christ.

However, the report in heaven might have been like this: ” We welcome one of our choice servants into Heaven today. He was soundly converted some 40 years ago and followed Christ closely until our Father called him to be with us. There are many here today because of his life of obedience. He did “see Me in prison and visited Me.”  He influenced many to live godly and obedient lives. He was an example of the wonderful grace our Father  pours out on His children.”

There was a bit of a mess he stirred up some years ago in the American ploticial system but I have forgotten all about it.

I welcome him with open arms  to join us for all of eternity. I am well pleased with this servant of mine. Let’s pray for his beloved wife, Patty, whom he left on earth.”

    hello Ruth, I like this story. This is in my mind just good ole fashion forgiveness. it is one of the hardest things to come to terms with, and without jesus i assume its impossible to truly forgive. i was assualted last year in september and it left me with considerable amount of emotional trauma. it took me 20 yeaqrs to come to terms with ptsd from combat and then the assault happened and threw me into a real bad mental spell. one thing jesus and i have worked on is my forgiveness of the person who assualted me and how that is as important to healing as a anything else. thanks for being who you are and all the great things you do.

    I am at a very down time in my life, my wonderful husband of 32 years passed away, my heart is broken, I am blessed because my 3 wonderful children are home with me and my are taking good care of me. I JUST MISS MY HUSBAND, everything reminds me of him, I cry every morning and night, I want to feel his arms around me and tell me its going to be ok,please pray for me that I can receive God’s grace and mercy, your sister in Christ Lina.

Lasting Gifts
Well...the house is decorated. The cookies baked. The presents bought - and most already wrapped. Others mailed out. I remember when I treated wrapping as an art form - each was decorated to perfection - almost like Martha Stewart. Gone are those days...to much time and too much money. Now I find a

Stealing Christmas
Have you ever felt dull? Tired? Like the color gray? Just no joy in living. No spark of excitement. Everyone on FaceBook seems to have the joy and energy for the season- but you. With the holidays coming on you are supposed to be excited about family,shopping, cooking, decorating, wrapping, parti

The Blessings that Remain
I may have posted this last year...it's worth repeating.   There are loved ones that are missing From the fireside and the feast; There are faces that have vanished There are voices that have ceased; And we know they passed forever From our mortal grief and pain - And we

Being Thankful
I  got this some years ago. It is by an unknown author. It's all a matter of perspective.   Being thankful for: The mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends. The taxes I pay because it means that I am employed. The clothes that fit a little
