If you have difficulties today… If you don’t understand the path your on. If life has taken a few unexpected twists and turns. Or maybe it’s just one of those days. HOLD ON. Keep trusting. Keep believing. Keep going. God is for you. He hasn’t left you. And He is working things together for your good.
Sometimes we have to look at the difficulties we face and realize that God sees things from a higher perspective. He sees things we cannot see. And like a good Shepherd, He will lead us where we need to go. He’s with us even when we don’t “feel” like it. And we can TRUST HIM to lead us through the tough places because He is good. And He is a loving God. Encourage yourself today. Take a leap of faith. And keep holding on to Him.
Count it all joy….even when you encounter various difficulties. ~James 1:1-4
I woke up yesterday morning to an alarming set of texts from a family member who was in a terrible crisis. The situation was well beyond my ability to fix or control and when I couldn’t reach them after several attempts, I felt fear trying to take hold of me. I had a choice – to allow it to conquer me. Or fight back. Refuse to give in. And trust God. I chose trust.
If it had not been for the Lord, I would have crumbled.
As the day went by, I was able to gather information and finally heard from one of the family members involved. It was a dark situation. Very Frightening. But. As I prayed, all through out the day, there was a peace that held me. That kept me. That guided me. I was able to finish working and make my way back home.
If it had not been for the Lord, I would fallen apart.
My husband and I prayed together. We talked. And we trusted God to intervene in a situation we could not fix and felt helpless to change. Sometimes all we can do is give it to God. Sometimes things get broken and WE can’t fix them. Sometimes we are not the answer that someone needs. Sometimes all we CAN do is pray.
If it had not been for the Lord, I would have been crushed.
Then. Today. One day later. We received news that the situation had a turnaround. Those involved still needed prayer but there was a change for the better. And there was peace. A storm was diverted. A victory won. The answers came from God. Not man. All we could do was pray. And wait.
And God answered. As only He can. All through my life, in so many situations, I know if it had not been for the Lord, who was on my side, I would never have made it.
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side… ~Psalm 124
It’s the middle of winter. But. I hear song birds singing outside…just as if it were spring. Its a nice reminder that “winter” doesn’t last forever. And neither do storms.
Seasons change but God doesn’t. He’s the one person we can ALWAYS trust to be there. ❤️
There is no peace like the peace of God… It is a peace that passes all of our understanding. It is a peace that flows from the heart of God and wraps us in the love of God…and there’s no better place to be than wrapped up in God’s love. ❤️
Be anxious for nothing but in everything, with all prayer and petition and thanksgiving, LET YOUR REQUESTS BE MADE KNOWN UNTO GOD and the peace of God which surpasses all of your understanding will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus! ~Philippians 4:6,7

TRUST GOD with it all… Yes. With everything. Because He’s for you. Not against you.
He’s with you. He hasn’t left you. And He never will. He loves you and He hears your prayers.
So keep praying. Keep trusting. And keep moving forward.
Cast all your cares on God for HE CARES FOR YOU…. ~I Peter 5:7
