When sorrow is sitting heavily on your chest and you ask the Lord how much longer and why He’s allowed you to experience such heartache and pain….
Remember when you were carried through prior sorrows. Sorrow and grief won’t look the same or last the exact amount of time but remember that He carried you. He never left you alone.
Memories and dreams will come that seemingly put you back at square one but remember. God carried you before and He’ll do it again. He’s faithful to the end. He’s a God that cannot lie.
Remember that all things work for our good. God’s reasons and plans are greater than our temporary pain and our understanding that cannot be matched to His. (Romans 8:28, Isaiah 55:8:9)
Keep the faith, keep believing and don’t doubt. Won’t He do it? Yes He will.
Do you remember?
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore.”
Psalms 121:1-8 NKJV
Love this Terra! I’m not sure if I have commented to you about the song by Danny Gokey, or if you saw my comment to Pastor J at the bottom of the ‘Led to Pray’ post, but he has a song that goes along with all that we have been talking about. It is called ‘Haven’t Seen It Yet’. Here’s the youtube link: https://youtu.be/X1eMZiOJ0a0
Thank you! I’m not sure if you have about the song but I appreciate you sharing it with me!
