Often in this haphazard world, we long and strive for immediacy and perfection and instant gratification. And the solution is often looked for from within ourselves or friends, or people we feel we can trust and take comfort from in whatever situation befalls us that we feel helpless or unsure.
The only 'necessity' we really need and require is the belief and hope that God can see us through those times…reliance and focus on His word and promise. He is the steady landing in our precarious lives.
EXPECT troubles will come in your days, but also KNOW that He is beside us during each and every moment. We are never alone. I encourage you to read Wandering through Life - Hope for Neighbors Christian Gift Book
and find solace in finding God's extraordinary ways woven into our own everyday lives….full of brokenness, yet gaining strength from God and God alone. He finds us where we are at - in the highs, in the lows, and reaches for us.
"He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.
He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support.
He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me."
He DELIGHTED in me. How incredible to have delight from Him for us. Rest assured in His saving grace and what He has chosen for us….a sanctuary in His loving arms.
