easy...doing takes effort. This past weekend has encouraged me to get back on track and to begin to share my thoughts of encouragement.
Over the past several months people have repeatedly disappointed me but My God has never once been a disappointment. My past struggle was like a full-time job with over-time hours...but...you never knew when you were supposed to report for work or for how long you would work on any particular day. You never knew if anyone would show up to work.
That is life. Through it all I know that people can and will
disappoint us, but God...NEVER. As a matter of fact, through the
disappointment, I have gained even more patience. For some reason God continues to cultivate patience in me by those things which take place in my life. I know a few things because of these struggles...I am still alive...and as long as I am alive I will have
struggles...period. I know that sometimes these trials can come at a great cost. I also know that these trials are making me into the person God wants me to be...for Him. (James1:2-4 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. )
I don't know what kind of person I will eventually become. I don't know what other trials and tribulation will come my way, but I do know that trials will come because His Word has told me that trials will come. Not maybe...not possibly...not only if I am bad. It rains on the just and unjust. (Matthew 5:45 He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.) Have yourself a great day in The LORD.
