2 Timothy 4:18
And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever Amen.
As His child we do not know what that evil work may be, it could be a sickness or even cancer, but we should know that one day we will be delivered. It may be that we have to suffer for a while, whether short or long, but God has a place prepared for us that we will never have to suffer again. What a comfort! We also must remember that Christ died on that Cross for us. He experienced more pain than we ever could suffer or imagine. - so that we can have a place that we can experience with no more pain or suffering again.
I get enraged at the group that calls themselves a "church" that protests in front of soldiers funerals stating that God kills them because He hates homosexuality. Enrages is the word! I can't believe that people are STUPID enough to think that God would kill soldiers just because he hates something that has nothing to do with the military. PLEASE people, what Bible are you reading. Now God destroyed cities because He didn't like homosexuality, but where do you read that he would kill our military? I am very thankful for the group called Patriot Guard - who goes to the funeral (on thier motorcylces) to make sure these people do not cause too big of a rucus at a funeral - don't you think these people are hurting enough because of their loss. Not one of them that has lost a loved one has thought that God did this because of homosexuality! I can only imagine what the person who was killed would think. All I can think is that God has a great purpose and plan, He will handle this in His time.
