No matter what you're facing today, just know that there is a God, who truly cares for you! There can be moments, when we feel as if He doesn't care or love us...because maybe we aren't experiencing Him at work within our lives; but no matter what we feel...I have come to see that He is in the background of our lives...working, to give us His very best.
One thing I will never forget in my life; were the long and drawn out moments of pain and deep heartache. At that time...life became very discouraging because I just couldn't feel God's presence at work within my life. Everything seemed dark and lifeless around me...but it was through time; that I began to see little glimpses of light...and now, as I look back; the moments that became so discouraging, was due to what I was thinking...and what I expected from God at the time. Once I began to take hold of the little things I would see, from time to time; then those moments actually became the lifeline that kept my head above the troubled waters.
You know...sometimes God doesn't just drop a bomb on our heads and everything from there becomes perfectly well again; but rather, there can be times, when He works bit by bit...and teaches us new things along the way...as He did with me.
One thing that will truly help you through the tough times; is to not expect God to work, in the way you expect Him to work; but rather, anticipate His ways...and the little glimpses of light that can keep hope alive within you...Amen!!
