Sunday Stillness – Quote by Max Lucado
Sometimes my days seem like a fog – like last week. Other times I feel like I am in a jungle with branches, and vines, and everything all swirling around me.
In our Bible study we are using a book called The Gospel of Matthew by Max Lucado.
In lesson five called “Following Christ”, Max asks these questions and gives his answers.
Does God remove the jungle? No, the vegetation is still thick.
Does he purge the predators? No, the danger still lurks.
Jesus doesn’t give hope by changing the jungle; he restores our hope by giving us Himself.
And I am so grateful that God can bring peace in the midst of the jungle. He can make me calm, and even joyful when things seem to be confusing.
I am with you always, to the very end of the age (Matthew 28:20, NIV).

That would be great.
Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.
I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.
