I don’t know about you, but some days I just need a reminder that God is still on His throne, and is still at work in my life, working all things together for my good and for His glory. It’s easy to become negative and plunge into a pity-party, indulging in the “woe is me” song that occasionally gets stuck in a repeat loop in our mind.
It really should have come as absolutely no surprise that while I was writing a book on trading our worries, fears, and anxieties for God’s peace, that I would have plenty of opportunity to put that into practice. If it weren’t for the frustration, aggravation, and consternation, it might have been comical. But alas, I’m not quite there yet in my spiritual growth.
God has seen me through some very dark days. Loss of loved ones, miscarriage, my husband’s multiple cancer bouts, personal illness and more. God has always been faithful to see me through. Read more for scriptures that will give you hope.
Many around the world are watching and celebrating medals from the 2018 winter Olympics, but in the United States, we’ve been dealing with some very difficult circumstances.
While the banter across social media and even on the news stations has included hypotheses about the why’s and what we could do to stop a tragedy, I think it really comes back to a heart issue and a matter of love. Love? Yes, love.
God is faithful. The question is can we trust Him in the midst of our trials? When we believe God will fulfill His promises to us, we can look at our difficult circumstances and maintain our hope.
