• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Perfect Peace

Those who love Your law have great peace, And nothing causes them to stumble. Psalm 119:165

Darlene Rose, a missionary to Batavia, Java, arrived there in 1938 with her new husband, Russell. They ended up as prisoners of war during World War II and were taken to the mountains, where eventually all of the men were shoved into a truck. As Russell took his place, he spoke words of comfort to Darlene.

“Remember one thing, dear,” Russell said, according to an article on the Charisma Magazine website. “God said He would never leave us or forsake us.”

Darlene never saw him again. But she said that as the truck pulled away, she felt at peace because she believed Romans 8:28: “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

The article went on to say that over the next few years, Darlene and her fellow missionaries were forced to eat dogs and rats to stay alive. They were also in constant danger from pirates and savage murderers. Eventually the missionaries were rescued by Allied soldiers. A few years later, though, she returned, spending forty more years in the jungles of Indonesia. Both she and Russell had perfect peace because they knew and trusted God’s Word.

As you face hardship today, you, too, can experience perfect peace.
