I know God has a plan and a purpose for my life as sure as I sit here. I have not been on here for a while, because I have been having health difficulties and trying to deal with them. But the one verse that I cling to is Jeremiah 29:11
“I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and future.”
Even when I can’t see the outcome, I can thank Him in advance for all the blessings he has and will bestow upon me. My faith is strong and I trust in the Lord with all my heart.
I live with chronic pain, every day, but I know that no matter what I go through or how I feel, God will use everything for good according to His purpose. Some days are harder than others to get through, but I get through them because I lean on Jesus Christ and cry out when I am not sure what words to say or how to express what I need to; I know the Holy Spirit will intercede on my behalf.
While celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ today at church, our pastor was speaking on how our lives may seem empty, just as the tomb was found empty all those years ago and because of the darkness in the world, and in our own little worlds, sometimes, in the emptiness, we struggle with what to do and where to turn, and sometimes we forget that God is right there with us as we struggle. He hurts when we hurt, and he is sad for us when we are struggling. He died so that we could have victory and not be overcome by the darkness.
It is my prayer, that if you feel lost and alone, that you will remember that God is with you. He will never leave you or forsake (forget) you. He loves to hear from His children, and help them in only ways He can. He is the most loving Father you will ever have, or need.
May the God of Hope and Love wrap His arms around you and give you peace and joy.
Much love and blessings,
