    My list of stories about if God had not been with me/us is very long. I have had some really close calls and many of those “there but for the Grace of God go I” experiences in my life time. I think it is good that we reflect on these not only when we are in the midst of a crisis or difficulties, but everyday when we wake up. It helps us to know that what He has done before He will do again.

    Now be honest, did you do the internet search on “Here I raise my Ebenezer?” If you did you would learn the Hebrew origin of the term and the popular hymn, “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing.” In Hebrew, Ebenezer means “stone of help.” It comes from the prophet Samuel and the alter he raised to commemorate God’s help in defeating the Philistines. I wonder if we should raise our own Ebenezer to commemorate God’s help in time of trouble and plenty. “Our help’s in the name of Yahweh, Maker of the heav’n and earth.” That’s something worth remembering don’t you think?
