This world is full of evidence that He cares for you. God shows off His brilliance so we can physically see what He is capable of.
Prayer isn’t just for your quiet time in the morning or a ritual before meals and sleep. It is to be a constant conversation with God daily.
You can trust God in your present and future; with what your eyes can see and what is beyond your ability to gaze upon. We will see His goodness. We will see His hand at work in our lives.
I doubt that He would have me lose heart, have shattered dreams, a worn-out body, and a hopeless spirit. I doubt that He would give me dreams and passions and abilities without chances to use them and live them out.
You see the impossible, He sees opportunities. God can either showcase His authority or help you see your faith in action.
There’s always someone or something that opposes you. It’s the classic good versus evil scenario. As Christians living in a broken world full of evil, it should come as no surprise that we will have to fight it.
It is in the storm that we seek an anchor to keep us steady, a rock to cling to, a hope to believe in.
God’s given me my manna, my just enough portion, for each day. He will make a way in my wilderness. He will create a river in my desert.
The more you seek out and practice these fruits, the more you find they become a part of your daily habits.
You have not been abandoned in your pain. And as contradictory as it sounds, there is joy to be found in the hurt.
