Today, as I was thinking about what topic I should post on, I literally started thinking, “C’mon God. I need something really convicting. Something that will cut to the heart, draw the tears out, and change the world!” I quickly realized my problem, I should’ve spelled it “Come on.” No, seriously, I want to bring y’all heaven so much, that I completely miss the point of this blog and that is to help you along in your walk with Christ. So, I’m going to try to do that and nothing more today and in future posts. I pray that God moves in your life and draws you closer to Him, like He’s done with me through this blog. I know I’m a little rusty on posting (it’s been well over a month…), so here goes.
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
God is a God of hope. May He fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in what? Hope! How great is that?
Whether you’re hoping to gain something or keep something, keep hoping. If you’ve lost what you were hoping/praying for, that’s a tough pill to swallow. I know what I’m about to tell you is so easy to say, but almost impossible to comprehend. Whether it was something (or someone) you lost that you originally had, we must understand that everything is God’s will. I know it’s hard to wrap your mind around that. So many times I get caught up in the moment that I can’t see any reason why God let that event happen… It’s impossible, at that time, to see any good outcome, but then, a few weeks later, I realize how much closer I’ve grown to God since that event occurred. Just hang on. Hope and pray, pray fervently, and God will make everything work out according to His glory, in due time. (Thankfully,) We don’t have anything to do with what happens. I know that if I had control for what happened in my life, I would be an absolute wreck. We, as humans, have finite minds and we can trust God to do whatever is best because, after all, He made everything.
Now that’s awesome.
