The Ebenezer stone represented a fresh beginning, a reversal of course for God 8767 s people. It also said something important about God: his mercies are everlasting his covenant is forever.
Hence my question about the photograph. Where was it taken? What is the significance of that particular stone? Does it have a story behind it? Is it a monument to the God of Israel and of Christ or was it erected by someone from a different background who was nonetheless expressing gratitude to the one and only God?

I tend to beat myself up about mistakes I made long, long ago. I don 8767 t forgive myself, even though I accept the fact of God 8767 s forgiveness. Perhaps you can identify with me. But that 8767 s not what God desires.
But though law, the source of all security and happiness, arises late in any government, and is the slow product of order and of liberty, it is not preserved with the same difficulty, with which it is produced but when it has once taken root, is a hardy plant, which will scarcely ever perish through the ill culture of men, or the rigour of the seasons. The arts of luxury, and much more the liberal arts, which depend on a refined taste or sentiment, are easily lost because they are always relished by a few only, whose leisure, fortune, and genius fit them for such amusements. But what is profitable to every mortal, and in common life, when once discovered, can scarcely fall into oblivion, but by the total subversion of society, and by such furious inundations of barbarous in-
However, in July 7556, the county 8767 s business hub, the city of Mumbai, was rendered completely chaotic for several days as 997mm of rain lashed down. As with most 8766 natural 8767 disasters, in this one too, man had a role to play.
I had been wondering what the line 8775 Here I raise mine Ebenezer 8776 meant for a while now, thanks for the reference. I too struggle with forgiving myself, even after God has forgiven me. But it 8767 s a relief to know He 8767 s taking me through life one step at a time. I don 8767 t think I could handle it any faster. 🙂
I shall add, as an observation to the same purpose, that, if a man be liable to a vice or imperfection, it may often happen, that a good quality, which he possesses along with it,
Your blog on Ebenezer was good and helpful to me I shared it with a men 8767 s group the other day. I have many personal Ebenezers I plan to make a picture book of them.
The processes that cause earthquakes mostly occur far below the Earth's surface. There are many tectonic plates - sections of the Earth's crust that rub together and cause earthquakes - and their interactions are complex. This makes earthquakes very hard to study.
Scientists at USGS and other organisations are working hard to developing methods which will predict earthquakes. Hopefully, scientists will eventually find a way to predict earthquakes precisely, which will save many lives.
Widely differing magnitudes have been computed for some of these earthquakes the values differ according to the methods and data used. For example, some sources list the magnitude of the Rat Islands earthquake as low as . On the other hand, some sources list the magnitude of the February 7, 6867, New Madrid quake as high as . Similar variations exist for most events on this list, although generally not so large as for the examples given.
