For I am persuaded that nothing. . .shall be able to separate us from the love of God. Romans 8:38-39
Good morning, dear one, I feel blessed to be able to share with you a message of hope and encouragement once again. Recently my prayer list has been quite lengthy—so many struggling with health concerns, disappointments, and financial frustrations. Often we become discouraged when our prayers aren’t answered quickly or in the way we deem best. We ask, “Oh, God, why is this happening? This isn’t fair!” Have you ever uttered those heartfelt phrases?
Today, I am going to challenge you. Let’s not go around complaining. Instead, stay in faith. Recently I read this quote by Ramona C. Carroll: “Faith is putting all your eggs in God’s basket, then counting your blessings before they hatch.” Where is your focus this morning? On your problems? Or on God who is working, even this very moment to resolve every issue you are facing. God loves you and wants to do amazing things in your life today. Don’t miss them by looking down. Look up. Look into the amazing face of Jesus. See His smile. In the light of God’s glory and grace, “All things work together for good to them who love God and are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8: 28).
Prayer for Today:
Father, thank you for helping me to trust in Your plan while I patiently wait for my blessing to hatch.
Believing In God’s love for us, Linda
