All Things for Good

Garrett BioGod ordains and orchestrates all things for the good of His people (Romans 8:28). This means no word, no pain, no trial, and no joy are ever wasted because He uses them all for His eternal purposes. This often seems mysterious, or even ludicrous, but we walk by faith and not by sight. Our God sees what we don’t see and knows what we don’t know.

The posts on this blog are intended to stir your hearts to trust the God who works all things together for the good of His people. I pray you will be encouraged and strengthened by them.

Grace and Peace,

Garrett Kell

    Sub: kindly pray for God’s protection in our lives from the hands of Radical Muslims

    Dear Pastor,
    Greetings to you in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ from India!

    We are very glad to share with you that God has given us burden & vision in our lives to reach specifically to The MUSLIMS by The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have dedicated our lives into His hands to be used according to His will & plan in our lives.

    Our Lord Jesus is using us to fulfil His plan & will in and through our lives. Already Several Muslims men & women surrendered their lives to Jesus and they are following His teachings. They are witnessing about Jesus and their testimonies to their relatives & neighbors. God is adding more men & women to our worship services almost every week for His own glory.

    Militant Muslims are often torturing physically and trying to kill us and the believers from Muslim background for their new faith in Jesus. Even though we are facing heavy persecutions & threats by the Militant Muslims, but our Lord Jesus is using our lives for the extension of His Kingdom and He has protected us for His own glory. Militant Muslims are constantly trying to murder us. Our lives are in danger at this moment.

    We are in great need of your kind prayers in our own lives and for the persecuted believers. Humbly, we request you kindly pray for God’s protection from the hands of Militant Muslims. Please also pray that we might be always faithful to His call in our lives and grow in Him.

    We humbly request you kindly write few words to us for encouragement.

    With regards,

    Bashir & Ayeasha

    Hi Pastor Garret,
    I am Fabio, and I’m leaving the homossexuality. I’ve tried to find help about this, but some ministries, like Exodus, have closed. I am from Brazil. Could you help me in any way?

    I loved the Black Panther article you wrote! As a African-American woman, it was SOOOO refreshing to see black men and woman in a film that was not solely focused on their being in bondage. Also loved seeing black women portrayed with dignity, strength, poise and sensitivity (very rare these days!). It’s a more wholistic picture of the black women I grew up knowing and admiring. While they didn’t carry spears, they were fighters in their own rights. Anyways, thanks for a great read!
