Safe Place with Ruth Graham

Safe Place with Ruth Graham

Journal Entry

Lord, You know my heart – the dark places, the wounded places, the doubting places, the questionng places – and the happy, content places. They seem to be all jumbled together.

The jumble is distracting – like noises in my head.

Help me balance them – put them in perspective so that my heart is true, undivided.

You sort them all out then hand me the things You want me to do – clear my focus.

May I experience the unhurried pace of Your purpose for me. You don’t rush or panic. Help me not to. Let me have Your clear vision and gentle calm  in the midst of life’s stress.

Slow me down – bring me calm – like You did in the storm on Lake Gallilee.

    Faith is a living, bold trust in God’s grace, so certain of God’s favor that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God’s grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace.

    Dear Ruth,

    I just read, and discovered what you have been through over the years with three marriages.
    You don’t know how blessed you are to have had a true believer for your earthly father.

    I have never been divorced, but I am widowed, and was born as an orphan, remained that way on this earth. Never adopted, except for Jesus, but we are still here on this planet, and live in a fleshly body.
    I have been very frustrated with the Lord, not having had provided me with people to replace as my parents. I do not have any children either.

    I stay very busy, and have helped a number of women out, keeping them from being on the street.

    I am nearing 60 now. I am in poverty, since the death of my husband who was my best friend, although, yes, he was unfaithful to me. The Lord took him.

    Having a hard time finding true beleivers here in Charlotte, NC. I relocated here 6 years ago from New England.

    I am also not understanding why Jesus is leaving Saeed Abadini in such a place of hell.

    In spite of all you have gone through, it sounds like Jesus has HIS hands on your children.

    Hope you keep writing books, people like me need encouragement from a true believer!

How to Pray for Enemies
God tells us to pray for our enemies. Even to love them. That is impossible on our own. Seeing the photos and news reports from Paris makes my blood boil and I want to bomb our enemies into oblivion. I want revenge. But that is not God's way. ...
