Real Life Experiences


Everybody needs encouragement now and then, and we offer these stories and poems to you in the hopes that you'll find something that will touch your heart, something that will help you to face a new day, a new situation, a new problem.  In some of our future articles the names and places will have been changed. 

God wants us to lead rich, full lives, and sometimes we need to be encouraged towards the fulfillment of our potential.  It is our prayer that these
stories and poems will bring a blessing and comfort to those who are going through the storms and sorrows of life.

We would like to thank those who have given us permission to share what they have gone through, in so doing, they have followed the example of
Paul the Apostle who used his afflictions to encourage and comfort others.  (2 Cor. 1:3-6)

Why?

In the advancement of years, it is so easy to lose sight of the apparently simple but profound questions of a little child.  Their minds are filled with curiosity and questionings.  For many adults the amazing becomes ordinary, but for a child, the world can be full of excitement and wonder.  I can understand the words of the ancient prophet when he wrote: "A little child shall lead them".  Our Lord said:  "I thank Thee Father . . . that Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes" (Matt. 11:25).  This poem was written by a little girl of 10 years of age, and is an example of the teachings of the ancient prophet and our Lord.  Her testimony and photo can be found in the "Personal Testimonies" category - "A Little Child shall Lead Them". (Isa. 11:6)
