Just wanted to get on here quick this evening and share some encouraging words.
No matter what you might be going through right now. Regardless of how hard and painful it may be. I have is good news for you.
There is hope and healing for the broken in heart!
God is a healer of broken hearts! And He is our source of comfort, peace, and strength.
He hears your crys, He knows your pain, and He cares.
Some times things happen that are completely out of our control that we don't understand and we don't need to. We just need to know who is in charge and who is on the throne. And rest assured, He is holding your hand. He is in control and He's got this.
In Isaiah 55:8-9 we read , " For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Deuteronomy 29:29 "The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law."
It is the hard things in life, the things we cannot understand that us bring closer to where God wants us. He has a plan we cannot see - a plan far greater than anything we could ever hope for or imagine. I get excited thinking about it, don't you?
Here is beautiful quote.
"There are some circumstances over which we have no control. However, if we are redeemed children of God, we are exactly where He wants us, because His sovereignty rules over all our situations." - Charles F. Stanley
Below is a little devotion of Corrie ten Boom's that I find very encouraging and comforting.
In Christ our Hope and Strength, Mae
Jesus did not promise to change the circumstances around us. He promised great peace and pure joy to those who would learn to believe that God actually controls all things.
"One day, when He shows Himself in full splendor to men, you will be filled with the most tremendous joy.... You can be sure that God's spirit of glory... is resting upon you." 1 Peter 13-14
Your will be done, father. Teach us that you, not we control our lives for our own good. - Corrie ten Boom
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Paul, of over 22 years. Mommy to 9 blessings, ages 21 to 3 years. Our 2nd oldest son, at age 14, has gone on to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2017. I share about that new road we are on here on my blog.
My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
"I believe a greater intimacy with God leads us to an inner peace, unquenchable joy, & an ever-lasting hope regardless of what we go through in life." Mae
