Stress

This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it Amen. God is so good and so worthy of all of our praise,in the midst of our pain and doing good times. Job teaches us much about pain and praise,even after his great loss,Job said blessed be the name of the Lord,the Lord has given and it’s His to take away. Job never forgot about God and he never blamed God.We to should learn to respect and honor God no matter what’s going on in our lives.The trials and test do get hard to bear,but then we must remember what the word of God says  in Hebrews 12:2 Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,we do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus,on whom our faith depends from start to finish.  As we concentrate on all Jesus went through to secure our souls,then what we’re facing begins to look senseless. The word of God is filled with promises of God to help us,I love what God promises in Lamentations 3:31 The Lord does not abandon any one forever,God is not about to leave us,what happens is we tend to walk away from God. Especially doing our different trials,Peter also tells us that we should not be surprised by our fiery trials and tribulations,because we’ve been warned that they are coming ( 1Peter 1:6,7).So many scriptures warn us to hold on and trust in God and in these times we’re living in now,we need to really dig into the word for real.  In closing I just want to remind you of one of my favorite scriptures Isaiah 43:1 Do not be afraid,when you go through,when you go through, praise God we do go through,we are not left  alone!

Love in Christ Pat
