New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 22, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas 8A o HeraldZeltung p Friday November Church To talk with Jim Denary about Church Life call 6259144 Ext 221 Church Page God rewards the faithful but they also may suffer pain Having weathered the storm he thought surely God will pull this thing together He had done everything right Gotten help for the marriage Admitted his failures Done his homework In fact he had done everything possible to make things work After all they were Christians They had two kids Leaders in the church and community Surely God would not could not allow this marriage to break But it did And with painful tears he looked at me and asked the inevitable Why did God allow this to happen Dennis How could He allow this to end He is a friend who works out at the same gym His younger brother 46 years old and the father of four has been diagnosed with cancer To anyone not yet touched by this evil it is assumed a death sentence The wife said it first to him Weve been going to church Weve tried to do everything right How could this happen Ageless questions And when life has you on the ropes there are no i good answers But there is a story about a man who asked the same questions In fact it is one of the oldest recorded stories in history Isnt it interesting that it had to do with God and pain His name was Job and he lost it all in a heartbeat The first assault took his children and all his earthly belongings The second attack took his health Now everything was a loss His friends who at first comforted him turned on him Even his wife told him to give up Curse God and she said Instead of comfort he was told that God was angry and that it was his sin that caused the wrath Maybe you have heard or felt the same But a strange encounter that Job had no knowledge of had convened Behind the curtain of heaven in the throne room of God a meeting had Dennis Gallaher Guest Column taken place Job was the subject God and Satan were debating whether or not Job was true to God If everything was taken he would forsake said the adversary Youre said God lake it and Through all this Job did not sin or blame God He will hate you if you take his said the evil one Hes faithful out of said God touch him and And so he did Yet Job remained faithful and true to God All through the multiple deaths of loss Job asked the tough questions All through he complained in pain and anguish And the much talked about patience of It was non existent Job had little patience for pain He waited but not very patiently His gift was not patience but faithfulness One writer said it well To us who have the New Testament it would seem that Job had very little to go on yet he kept on talking to He never gave up He kept talking to the One who could deliver In all his pain and anguish Job Friedens Church plans Thanksgiving meal Come join your neighbors and friends You wont want to miss the Thanksgiving celebration at Friedens Church

J3raunfes as dean of the eastern half of the diocese with responsibilities Bernardin leaves thoughts in print to teach others CHICAGO AP Cardinal Joseph Bernardin has left a printed legacy of personal reflection and the thoughts of others The Roman Catholic cardinals book The Gift of was completed shortly before his death last week of pancreatic cancer and will be published by Loyola Press in January In the book Bernardin writes about discovering the true importance of prayerand about his imminent death In an excerpt released recently he recalls telling three priests in the mid1970s that he was finding it difficult to pray and asking them if they could help In veiy direct even blunt terms they helped me realize that as a priest and a bishop I was urging a spirituality on others that I was not fully practicing myself That was a turning point in my life These priests helped me understand that you have to give what they called and what many spiritual directors today call quality time to prayer It cant be done on the You have to put aside good time quality he writes Bernardin says he decided to give God the first hour of my day no matter what to be with him in prayer and meditation

Kristin Off Your First Visit With This Ad Walklns Welcome Hours Evenings never gave up on God And in the end Job passed the test His creed became though he slay me yet will I prosper Elizabeth Elliott finishes the story for us The last words we hear from him are therefore I melt away I repent in dust and ashes Ashes the place of his torment become the place of his Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and said Jesus Death whether it be divorce the empty nest rejection of a lover loss of ones health or death is always meant to bring life by God Nothing is wasted by Him Everything dead is used to fiiel nutrients into the unseen purposes of His love for you If only we had eyes to see the greater life that always comes from death How can your pain somehow be all right with God How can a good and righteous God allow His children to suffer such great pain Doesnt God care Doesnt He take into account what weve tried to do right Why do good people suffer There are few answers But you might try one or two more questions such as Who knows what meetings in heaven have gone on about you and me Who knows what challenges have been made against our love for God that God is now defending Who knows what great jewels of character will arise out of the ashes of our burned up dreams And all that is needed is that we and wait and wait and wait some more for God He is the One who began the good work He is the One who must bring it to completion The Maker of the Promise can be trusted Because He gives a greater grace to the humble And so He will do for you Dennis Gallaher is pastor of
