Grace morning on this momentous and meaningful Monday.
No matter how many precautions you may try and take, tragedy and suffering are not something you can avoid or prevent.
Your life is held in God’s hands. And although you may make your plans and your to-do lists, He is the one that ultimately determines your steps.
Whatever momentary afflictions you’re facing today will not last forever.
Everything going on in our world today is not a surprise to God.
He’s not been caught off guard.
He’s not been sleeping while our world rages out of control.
God is still on the throne.
And He still has a plan and a purpose for everything going on in the world around you, and in your own personal life.
As Believers in Christ, we are not to trust God in trouble times.
We are not to give up hope or drown our sorrows with in a tub of tears.
You don't need to doubt the love and the goodness of God towards you. He doesn't promise a storm-free life, but He does promise to be the anchor in the storm so that you will not be overcome! Trust Him daily. Trust Him hourly and learn to trust Him moment by moment. His resources will get you through tough times.
“Energize the limp hands, strengthen the rubbery knees. Tell fearful souls, “Courage! Take heart! GOD is here, right here, on his way to put things right And redress all wrongs. He’s on his way! He’ll save you!””
Isaiah 35:3-4 MSG
Whatever you need today, lean on His resources, you will not be disappointed. When you trust God, you will not be consumed nor will you be crushed by the crises you face.
Live, love, and laugh your way through this magnificent Monday!
