I do not often express my faith here on my blog, but a message has been laid on my heart for you today. There have been several major challenging and heartbreaking events in my life over the past few years. It has been a struggle to stay focused on Christ’s salvation and God’s unfailing faithfulness. For those of you who are struggling, this message is for you.
God is good ALL the time. Even when your heart is broken or your eyes are clouded or your mind is full of strife and confusion, He is good and He is with you. Seek Him each day and you will find Him. The hardships may not resolve right away. And you may trip up and grumble many times along the way. But the Holy Spirit will work in your heart little by little and renewal will come. He will tell you, quietly and consistently, “Fear not, for I am with you.”
Lamentations 3:21-27, 55-58
“Yet my hope returns when I remember this one thing: The Lord’s unfailing love and mercy still continue, Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise. The Lord is all I have, and so I put my hope in him. The Lord is good to everyone who trusts in him, So it is best for us to wait in patience–to wait for him to save us–And it is best to learn this patience in our youth.
“From the bottom of the pit, O Lord, I cried out to you, And when I begged you to listen to my cry, you heard. You answered me and told me not to be afraid. You came to my rescue, Lord, and saved my life.”
Let us remember God’s steadfast love and faithfulness this weekend. Standing in the power and hope of the Holy Trinity, we can do all things through Him who strengthens us!
May you have a joyous Easter holiday! Thank you for reading.
