God is so faithful. He is always working for our good even when we cannot see it at the time. As I look back I now see where God placed me in the right place I needed to be. I remember times he provided when it seemed hopeless. I have seen him work miracles over and over again and I stand in awe. I do not ever want to take them for granted. I thank God for all the things he has done in my life and in the lives of those I love. He has given me many desires of my heart, my precious children, grandchildren and a husband who loves the Lord and is committed to serving him. I have seen the Lord bring us through trials of illness, and the stress that disability can cause if we don’t keep our eyes on him.
Take time to look back in your life and I am sure you will find trials that you did not understand. It is hard to see the hand of God working behind the scenes, but he is! I bet as you think about the situation,you now understand more and can see where God was with you.
Look for God moments where he shows you something or brings everything together in a sequence that could only be God. These are the times that we are amazed. We are comforted when he reminds us that he hears, he sees, and he is there in our struggles. Did you learn something? Did he provide when you needed it most? Was he there to comfort you at a low point?
Great is your faithfulness, oh God and let us always remember that. “Strength for today and a bright hope for tomorrow ” He has you today and you can trust He has your future.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
