God is NEVER Wrong

Everything happens with purpose in mind.

I received this in an e-mail from a family member… Sometimes when we ask “why?” or get upset about what God allows, just remember He knows the purpose and plan. Quick, encouraging read.

A king who did not believe in the goodness of God, had a slave who, in all circumstances would say: My king, do not be discouraged, because everything God does is perfect, no mistakes!

One day they went hunting and along the way a wild animal attacked the king. His slave managed to kill the animal, but could not prevent his majesty from losing a finger.

Furious and without showing his gratitude for being saved, the nobleman said…

“Is God good? If He was good, I would not have been attacked and lost my finger.”

The slave replied only “My king, despite all these things, I can only tell you that God is good, and he knows the “why” of all these things.What God does is perfect. He is never wrong!”

Outraged by the response, the king ordered the arrest of his slave.

Later, he left for another hunt and was captured by savages who made human sacrifices.

While on the altar, ready to sacrifice the noble, the savage found that the victim had a missing finger and so he was released. According to them, he was not complete enough to be offered to the gods.

Upon his return to the palace, the king authorized the release of his slave to whom he said very affectionately:

My dear slave, God was really good to me! I was almost killed by the wild men, but for lack of a single finger, I was let go! But I have a question: If God is so good, why did he allow me to put you in jail?

My King, if I had gone with you in this hunt, I would have been sacrificed for you, because I have no missing finger.

Therefore, remember: everything God does is perfect. HE is never wrong .

Often we complain about life and the negative things that happen to us, forgetting that nothing is random and that everything has a purpose.

Every morning, offer your day to God. Ask God to inspire your thoughts, guide your actions, to ease your feelings. And do not be afraid. God is never wrong!

Do you know why you read this message??? I do not know, but God knows, because he never makes mistakes…….

The path of God and his word is perfect, without impurities. It is the way of all those who trust in him, as he says in 2 Samuel 22: 31.

Surely this message arrived at the right moment. May God put in your heart the desire to send it to someone. Do not be ashamed like or share. God knows, He knows why.

God is never wrong!

Wake up on the Sunny Side!!

Great food, GREATER service!!!

From the moment you walk in until the time you leave you will be surrounded by great food and great people!!!  My uncle invited my aunt and I to lunch while my mom was in the hospital (detailed post will come), and this was his suggestion.  I am still grateful for the broccoli casserole, and the mac and cheese was FABULOUS!!  Each day offers a tongue teasing dish that is sure to knock your socks off!!!  We happened to visit on “Meatloaf Monday”…

Meatloaf Monday!!!

Meatloaf (yes, with rice…YUMMY!!!), broccoli casserole (veggie), mac & cheese (veggie), and collard greens…. #delightful

The meatloaf was made the way my grandmother used to do it, the mac & cheese the way it should be, and the sweet tea was TRUE to Carolina!  Add the ketchup if you dare!!!  Yes, this was definitely a portion large enough to be “Linner” (lunch and dinner).

My friends and I are slightly round with REASON!  We enjoy food, fun, and fellowship.  We take steps to remain healthy, but anytime we have the opportunity to try something tasty and new, we’re all for it!!  So, if you enjoy great food and happen to visit Columbia, SC this is a place to put on your list!!  Check please!!!
