The past few years have been filled with great highs, and some really deep lows. Everything I "thought" about God and what He would "do" for me has been challenged. I definitely would not "choose" to ever go through some of these times again, but I have found some basic truths that walked me through these times and will get me through the days ahead.
So what are these truths?
There IS a God. Yes, there sure is!
He knows my name and everything that I am going through.
He will never leave me, not even for one moment.
Knowing these things have given me an amazing ability to "know that I know, that I know" regardless of what is going on in my life, HE holds it all, and will walk me through it all.
There are still times when I worry or stress. I don't know of anyone who NEVER worries or stresses. Do you? But all in all, after the initial panic fades, I have assurance that I am not alone. In fact God is probably closer to me than before I knew about the situation, because it has given me a greater need. (Yes, often, we are allowed to face things, in order to draw us further and deeper in a relationship with Him.)
So, what have you learned about trusting God? Do you know how much He truly loves you?
Father God, I am so thankful, that in spite of all the hard times I have or will face, that I have assurance You are beside me. I know You hold all things in Your hands and that You want to bless me and prosper me with so many blessings. Thank you for growing me in these times too!
