A Landmark for me!

IMG_0871November 22nd remains as a landmark in my life, and so my memory  goes to the first November 22nd that made it a landmark!  It was 1969, that would be 48 years ago, when I first arrived in the United States of America, landing in Seattle, Washington around  6.00 am on a NorthWest Airlines (presently Delta Airlines) from Tokyo, Japan (now called Narita).

I was met by Brother Sam Smith ( to friends from Seattle Bible College) our Dean, and friend with his towering figure and disarming smile!  And the rest becomes History!

Forty eight years of God’s Goodness, Grace and Love!In all these years, then the promise that God gave to Abraham has been my foundational verse, and mainstay!  He has never failed me yet!  The verses read from Genesis 12: 1-3

12 The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

“I will make you into a great nation,
    and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
    and you will be a blessing.[a]
I will bless those who bless you,
    and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
    will be blessed through you.”

What A Great God we serve, and how great is His goodness, to us, and not one word of His promises has failed me, as Joshua said in his farewell address to his people in Joshua 23: 14,

“You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.”

I would encourage you TODAY to look back thankfully on ALL that God has blessed you with, and in thankfulness, bless those whom God has placed in your lives right now.
