America's Lady of Supernatural Thrillers

“Raven's Cove, a great mystery by Mary Ann Poll. Avoid it when winds are gusting to hurricane speed outside. No extra creepiness needed.”
~Bonnye Matthews
Step aside Stephen King, Alaska’s Mary Ann Poll is here to spin new tales of the super-natural and the ungodly, as her heroes and heroines take on the forces of evil on 'The Last Frontier.' ~Jeff Babcock


IS GOD’S HELP CONDITIONAL?

I am the author of Christian-based Paranormal Suspense Novels that are based in South Central Alaska. I live in and love Alaska and enjoy writing, gardening (in our oh-so-short summer), and RVing.

Today I came across something worth sharing (from The New Book of Lists by David Wallchinsky and Amy Wallace). It can be found in the section entitled “Well Known Sayings Attributed to the Wrong Person.”

 The saying, “God helps those who help themselves,” has been attributed to the Bible. BUT, the saying is actually coined from Aesop who said, “The gods help them that help themselves.”

So for all of you that are trying and trying to make your life better and feel as if you are beating your head against a wall, take heart! God did not tell you to work yourself to death so He would bless you. On the contrary, He knows we are exhausted and just trying to make it through the problems of our lives.  He told us to rely on Him, the only true rest. In the Lord Jesus Christ’s words, “Come to me all of you who are burdened and weary and I will give you rest.”

May your day be blessed with the peace of Christ that passes all understanding and the rest only He can give.
