For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
This is a simple illustration of the loving presence of God coming to those who gather in His name.

You’ll Get Through This by Max Lucado
In You’ll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. “Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere.” Max reminds readers God doesn’t promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn’t for Joseph–tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed–but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.
With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.
In this book, bestselling author Joyce Meyer will teach you how to conquer the feelings of loneliness and find renewed strength, hope, and joy through the Lord Jesus. She offers you practical and effective ways to triumph over loneliness and grief so you can live a happy, more fulfilled life.
There may be times in life when you feel lonely, but just remember, you’re never alone when God is standing by your side!
What makes friends so special? What does our choice of friends say about us? What sparks the best friendships and keeps them burning?
