From children sharing a love of music to professional musicians and teachers, authors Simonia E. and Archie K. Milton believe their lives are a testament that the Lord orchestrates His plan in the lives of His children.
These best friends, who grew up in New Orleans and married in 1964, trust that when they stand united as one in Christ, they can get around any obstacle they may encounter. From the birth of their three children and their grandchildren, to their successes in music, to their individual battles with cancer, to the loss of loved ones and of their home as a result of the flooding from Hurricane Katrina, they know God has blessed them in the good times and brought them through the difficult times in their lives.
They have found that living in harmony with the Lord, these words - which Archie said one day in college to an afraid Simonia - ring true: "You're going to be all right."
Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me. (Psalm 50:15 NASB)
My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:7-8 NLT)
As with the Miltons, when you diligently seek Him, you too will find Him. Jesus is there ready to intercede with the Father for us!
