Pondering tribulation: "pain without stain"

"......God, who foresaw your tribulation, has specially formed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain". ~ C.S. Lewis

14"Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin." Hebrews4:14-15 NIV
1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it..................."               "not without pain but without stain..."
 ~Hallelujah~what a Savior!


I read this quote early this morning and have been thinking about it all day. That led me to find the scriptures  which no doubt  Lewis was thinking about and experiencing when he made his own statement.
If you will turn off the playlist of just copy and paste this Youtube video, thinking about those thoughts, you will be able to rejoice with YOU HOLD ME NOW..............

Hi Linda,

Just wanted to let you know that I have written a couple of blog posts about Michael Pearl's Parenting Philosophy. (And ... I apologized to you for questioning you when you wrote about them last month.) My 3rd post will post on Monday night ... I really believe that the TRUTH needs to get out about what they are advocating as "Biblical Principles of Parenting".

May your Easter be BLESSED!!!
