The Ex-Wife Of Well-Known Iranian American Pastor Alleges Franklin Graham Counseled Her To Return To Abusive Husband 

Franklin Graham has disputed charges made against him by Naghmeh Panahi, ex-wife of Iranian American Pastor, Saeed Abedini.

She says the evangelist said to her, “There is nothing the two of you face, Naghmeh, that God can’t fix, if the two of you want it.” Graham’s spokesperson added, “Graham does not intend to address any other comments made by Abedini or his estranged wife but will continue to pray for them.” Read more of Panahi’s claims here.

Newly Discovered Fossil Shows Dinosaurs Had Belly Buttons

Paleontologists have discovered the oldest belly button known to science. It belongs to a Psittacosaurusa member of the horned dinosaurs Ceratopsia, in a fossil uncovered in China. The belly button does not come from an umbilical cord, as it does with mammals, but from the yolk sac of the egg-laying creature. The Psittacosaurus umbilical scar is similar to that of an adult alligator and is the first example of one in a non-avian dinosaur that predates the Cenozoic period, 66 million years ago. Scientists from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and international colleagues in Argentina and the U.S. used a high-tech laser imaging technology to make the discovery.

June 21st – Psalm 46:10

Psalm 46:10

Living in a busy world comes with its share of anxiety. But our stress doesn’t have to turn into distress. When God is our source of strength, we can “be still” and rest in Him. The phrase “be still”, comes from the Hebrew word, “raphah.” Translated it means to relax, cause yourselves to let go, or to let yourselves become weak. It’s a deliberate act of surrender. It means “casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.” (1 Pet. 5:7) I once heard it said that to take control means surrendering control. It’s only when we surrender all to God, our fears, worries, and hurt, can we really take control of any situation. For as Isaiah 30:15 tells us, “in quietness and trust is your strength.” When we put God in charge, following instead of leading, we are free to walk through every circumstance with an inner quietness only He can provide.
