Hello everyone and God bless you all! I have been having trouble writing the last few days because I am in pain again. I have been fighting it all morning and I am exhausted. I honestly don’t know what to write today and I have been praying about what the Lord would like to say, but all I can think of is “be honest about the pain.” So, here I am doing just that.
Yes, I am in pain, but I will press on. I am leaning into Jesus and resting in Him. More like, I am totally exhausted and He is carrying me. And you know what? That’s okay. Sometimes, all we can do is fall into the arms of Jesus and let Him hold us and comfort us.
I have been asking the Lord for mercy today. I have prayed that He would pour out His Holy Spirit on me and heal me. I know He can do miracles. He has done them in my life before. I am also asking for strength to endure. I know the Lord will work all of this out for my good because I am His and He loves me. I love Him and I have been called according to His purpose. May His will be done!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
The Lord brought this verse to my mind yesterday and I prayed that He would empower me to do what it says:
“So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.”
1 Peter 4:19
Amen! I know the Lord is faithful and I know He still has good plans for me and my family! The Christian life is not a life void of suffering. On the contrary, many of us bear a cross of suffering and we must press on for Jesus. There is a reason. He has not left us and He never will! God has a will and a purpose and it will all be revealed in time. May we overflow with hope as we trust in Him!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Jesus Christ is Lord! May His will be done in all things!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
Jesus speaking in John 3:16
Grace and peace to you all!
