Our hope in Jesus Christ through every difficulty is that He works all things together for good. Sometimes God’s master plan is that our sufferings today will be the seed of His grace in the lives of others tomorrow. And in everything it will always be forever for our good!
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose Romans 8:28
Try to remember the kind of September when grass was green and grain was yellow…
Nothing says September to me like the Hydrangea in it’s fullest bloom! It calls to mind walking to school, the smell of new books, and longing to stand on tip-toe just to catch a glimpse of what is on the other side of the hill. Some say I am already there on that other side but in my heart is still the young boy wondering what will be.
The greatest beauty of the stream is only fully seen when it yields itself to the pull of gravity down and over the rocks. In the same way the power of God’s grace is always present yet it waits for the moment when we yield our hearts to His power!
And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. Luke 15:20
O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesty
Above the fruited plains
America! America! God shed His grace on thee…
There is still hope in the grace of God!
When God seems far away we need to pause and ask ourselves….Who moved?
Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. James 4:8
