God shows us we are valuable but not essential. He shows us we are strong but not sovereign. He shows us that dedication and commitment follow a heart surrendered to His will.
God shapes each person uniquely for a purpose we cannot see in the dark. A light is cast by others who bring hope when ours is gone. You can become that light for others–a light that might be life changing, life inspiring, and life filling.
God is perfect in every way. He will never change. He can meet our every need. Nothing on earth can provide what God can provide.
Follow God’s direction as outlined in Scripture with deliberate, determined, and disciplined effort.
Few of life’s great lessons come packaged the way we imagined. We must be willing to learn, to let go, to live.
Even though we sometimes doubt God’s nearness, we must seek God with all our heart . . . especially when it has been broken into a million pieces.
Even in suffering, there is hope if we choose to depend on Christ and place our lives in His sovereign care. But we cannot do it alone; we must support one another.
During times of suffering, we are on the front row of watching God work. His ways are unlimited, incredible, beyond description.
Either we choose to live in bondage, using every ounce of energy to force down the worry, despair, shame, fear, or denial. Or we choose to allow our displaced grief to surface, so we might deal with it bit by bit.
It’s time to make the decision to talk with the Lord today—to thank Him for the hard times because they have caused you to plunge into His sovereign care.
