A story from Corrie Ten Boom:
Often I have heard people say, “How good God is!
We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic,
and look at the lovely weather!”
Yes, God is good when He sends good weather.
But God was also good when He allowed my
sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in
a German concentration camp.
I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there.
Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart.
I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. “No,
Corrie,” said Betsie, “He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word:
“For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.”
Corrie concludes, “There is an ocean of God’s love available – there
is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that
victorious love – whatever the circumstances.”
No matter what the circumstances.
God has not forgotten.
God’s love is available there is an ocean of his love and plenty for everyone and yes there is enough for you.
No matter your problem, God and his word and his promise is there for all!
Yes your problems may feel overwhelming, they often do feel that way.
My prayer and wish is that your problems and circumstances never get as dark as those that Betsie and Corrie Ten Boom had those days in the concentration camp.
My prayer and wish is that you always take time to pray, to give thanks to live a life of gratitude.
A quote from E. M. Bounds:
When trust is perfect and there is no doubt,
prayer is simply the outstretched hand ready to receive.
Trust perfected is prayer perfected.
Trust looks to receive the thing asked for and gets it.
Trust is not a belief that God can bless or
that He will bless, but that He does bless, here and now.
Trust always operates in the present tense.
Hope looks toward the future.
Trust looks to the present.
Hope expects. Trust possesses.
Trust receives what prayer acquires.
So, what prayer needs, at all times,
is abiding and abundant trust.
He will bless you, your prayer and your door is about to open.
Never quit just before the dawn of a new day. Some people have the impatience to quit just before the new door was about to open. Don’t let that happen to your answered prayer, or to your efforts to a better way.
It takes effort, answered prayer often comes with our free will to work towards a better way. But God has the ability to place people in our path that makes those ways easier and he blesses us with all the tools needed.
Tools like Faith, His word, His promise, His love.
Never give up
Never give in
Never ever lose the gift of love and forgiveness.
Dream Big, Pray often, Love Forever, Laugh for no reason and always, always take time to smile!
As always smiles sent your way ! : )
