James 1:3 kjv Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Many years ago, when I was just a young Christian, I said to wise older Christian lady that I was praying for patience. I remember vividly how she looked up at me with a smile on her face and said I hope you’re ready for the trials because patience is learned by the trying of our faith. How very true Sister Shirley was, for through the years I have faced many trials that have tested my faith and endurance. Yet, through it all the Lord never left me, never turned His back on me, walked away or said I don’t love you anymore. His love was consistent, ever enduring, always unwavering. So, through those trials my patience has grown and today I am still holding on to the best thing that ever happened to me, and that my friends was the Lord Jesus Christ coming to live in my heart and life.
Today, no matter what trial you are facing, the Lord is still with you. Hold on to Him for He will see you through whatever trials that come into your life. Keep your eye on Him and on that home above where there will be no more need for patience. For we will have finally reached that home of peace where there will be no more trials, no more heartaches, and no more tears.
God loves you my friends and so do I!
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Genesis 1:11-12 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
As I look out the window at the sunshine and the beauty of each fall color of orange, red, gold, and brown I am in awe of our Heavenly Father and His mighty work. Jehovah’s mighty hand made all things, and it is all perfect. Just as He paints His beauty around us, He also instills His beauty inside each of us who love Him and desire His companionship. He makes each of us perfect as He cleans us up, gives us a new heart, and the light of the Holy Spirit to live within us. I pray our Father fill each of you with love, peace, and grace today. Through Him we all can become the Father’s beauty for all to see.
God bless each of you,
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
With all that can be thrown in our path through our live one thing is certain, when all else fails us the Lord will never fail us or leave us. He will uphold us and give us strength to carry us through whatever we face.
Have a Blessed day!
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
