I want to first thank all of you for your continued prayers. The Christian community is truly remarkable and I have seen this first hand over the last few months. As I go through this trial in my life I am continually reminded of the Lord's faithfulness. He has been with me through it all every. single. day. From the moment life fell apart I have been 100% certain that I was in God's arms, which is kind of a weird and blessed feeling at the same time.
"In the world you will have trouble, but take heart for I have overcome the world" John 16:33
These word have never rung more true to me than they have recently. I have seen God overcome so many daily battles for me. None of us have the strength to weather this life alone and I am SO THANKFUL that the Lord promises to carry us through the times when we cant stand under the weight of life. He works all things for the good of those who love him (Romans 8:28) and he NEVER breaks a promise. Halleluia!
It is written throughout the Bible about how we are to trust in the Lord and wait on his timing. We are to look to Him for guidance and understanding and not lean on our own understanding. This is where our faith meets God's faithfulness. He wants us to have faith in him that he will provide what we need. He wants us to have faith so that he can prove his unfailing love and faithfulness to us. I admit that I have taken this for granted in the past, but this trial in my life has shown me how undeniably important it is to let the Lord lead me in every part of my life. When things fall apart and we are left heart broken, it only makes it more apparent that God is our savior. he is the ONLY Savior.
"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death cant and life can't, the angels cant and the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries for tomorrow, and even the powers of Hell cant keep God's love away. Whether we are high in the sky or in the deepest ocean NOTHING in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:38-39
The Lord is faithful yesterday, today and tomorrow. He alone ensures our future and is worthy of our praise. People and things will let us down but God never will. He remains constant through our storms.
