One person’s path will have stress at work, another will have physical ailments, another will have a special needs child to raise. Some are unemployed and looking for work, some have marriage issues, some are dealing with the loss of loved ones, and some are simply trying to find peace in the valley. Others deal with pride, fear, anger, hurt, forgiveness, and the list goes on. We all have different things we are going through, and some of us are even experiencing more than one thing at a time - which can bring a feeling of total hopelessness and confusion!
No matter what we go through, its important for us to remember, our God is always a good God. He loves us dearly and allows things to come into our lives that will strengthen us and draw us closer to Himself. If I didn't believe that, I probably would have given up a long time ago; and I know many others who have felt like giving up as well.
But, be encouraged, my friends! There are brighter skies to be seen ahead and, no matter what the current conditions are on YOUR path, remember this.... the Lord has promised to NEVER give up on YOU.
God bless you on your journey....
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight."
