Hello everyone! I miss writing to you! My life is in transition right now. I am in between places to live. I received a letter from my letter stating she wants to put her house up for sale, so long story short, I had to move. I am staying with family for the moment while trying to find a place to live. I know this too shall pass, but, if you remember me, please pray for me. God is faithful to His children, so, I know He will provide a place for me (hopefully sooner than later 🙂 I am actually writing this while I am at my doctor’s office because He has Wifi. To God be the glory for the things we have become accustomed to. 🙂
I would like to let to encourage you in whatever that you may be going through to know that God has not forgotten you in your trials either. “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.” (Psalm 119:50) God preserves us as we go THROUGH the trials of life…and I thank God it does not last forever-even though it may feel like forever. That’s why there are seasons in life. God gives the four seasons as object lessons. We have Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall; four seasons in (1) year. So it within our life. The summer that just passed was so hot for so long-it seemed like it would not end. But, it did…and now it is October! “The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!” (Psalm 118:14-16)
Even though I do not know where I will find a place to live, I know God has me in the palm of His hand. “Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.” (Psalm 55:22) I stand on the promises of God’s Word. That is the only thing we have that is a sure thing. “I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.” (Psalm 16:8) One of the true things my dear friend, Amy says is this”who or what else do we have as these days get darker and scarier? We only have God to protect us, provide for us, heal us and deliver us.” These trials are preparing God’s people to rely on Him and Him alone. It’s not the government that will come to our aid, but the LORD God, Jesus, Himself! “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
My blog will be a little short this week, but, I will try to get a little more stability to write and encourage you all in the love of God. Time is a funny thing. Ever person gets the same amount of time every day-24 hours in one day. Sometimes it seems to fly away, sometimes it seems to drag and so many time we waste it on silly things. I believe that how we handle our time during our trials will affect the “season” that we are currently experiencing. That is why the Bible says “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5: 15-16) God is there with us in every season of our lives.
As you Walk Every Day With Grace, ask God to guide you in the season that you are in and know that He is there with every season that changes.
In His Love,
