"If a commission by an earthly king is considered an honor, how can a commission by a Heavenly King be considered a sacrifice?"

In the hands of the God we trust. . .

"They call us a displaced people.
But praise God, we are not displaced.
They say they see no hope for our future.
But praise God, our future is as bright
as the promises of God.
They see, they see the life of our people is a misery.
But praise God, our life is a mystery.
For what they say is what they see,
And what they see is temporal,
But ours is eternal.
All because we put ourselves
In the hands of the God we trust."

-Pastor Simon, a leader among refugees from Burma


  1. "...our future is as bright as the promises of God."--How beautiful Maria, and so true. Thanks to God's abundant provision, our future is very, very bright...

  2. I'm moved beyond words. Only a man of faith and suffering could speak thus...

  3. My heart wishes that were true for all refugees from Burma.
