God is good.

I don't know why I ever doubt the Lord. Time and time again he shows me his constant love and over and over I forget and look elsewhere and despair about things. Today I was reminded just how good God is and how His timing is perfect. It wasn't a particularly glamorous moment, it was a small thing as I did my Bible study on Ruth in the laundromat.

Today something was laid on my heart again and I decided to address it with someone I love dearly. I was anxious about their response but prayed that their heart would be open to what I said. As I was worried about this I was sitting doing my study as I waited for my clothes and part of today's lesson had something about exactly what I brought up. I felt that it was a sign of encouragement from God that I did the right thing in addressing the issue.

I realize I'm being very vague but this is such a personal issue for me that I wanted to only share a part of it. I do know that God heard me and opened up their heart to me and their response was positive. I am beyond thankful to God for that, I know that was all Him.

I took some notes today and this is what I wrote down:

It's not just our willpower but strength we find in the Lord.

Only a love for Christ will sustain a long-term commitment to obedience.

Find JOY in the trials we face because when we pass the test we receive the crown of life.

  1. Yes yes yes! To all of this! I'm glad you had the courage to confront the issues on your heart with someone today. That is such a hard step to take but definitely a rewarding one. God's timing is so perfect, and His strength is sufficient for us.


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
