When you feel tired, discouraged, or taken advantage of, it can be hard to hang on to a perspective of hope. When we are in the messy "not yet", it helps to know there is certain hope that helps us in our "now".
When I hunger, You will satisfy me. When I need comfort, You will be there delivering it. When I am dry and thirsty, You will be Living Water to me. Thank you Jesus for always...always being right there at my side. To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
I say AMEN to this mom: I tell my son that when he is going through a major area of suffering in his life, it's because God has to put us through bootcamp before we can be soldiers and God must have REALLY big plans for his life as a soldier.
Psalm Standard Version (ESV) The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation Of David. 27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
