Wednesday Gratitude: Grateful that the Lord hears our cry!
I was talking with a friend last night and he stated while visiting his Mother who is ill, his Dad looked at them both and said " I'm going to watch T.V. and will let you two ladies sit and visit".......... I thought to myself - ouch! How could a Father speak to his Son that way.
It made me dwell on the TRUTH..... An earthly Father may not love and respect his Son here on earth - BUT OH WHAT A DIFFERENCE A HEAVENLY FATHER MAKES! Our heavenly Father loves us with such an unconditional love that he grants us FULL FORGIVENESS in his Son Jesus Christ! What joy that brings to my heart.
Isn't it wonderful to know and trust that God allows all things for HIS PURPOSE and that he is a GOOD GOD and will turn our disappointments into our BLESSINGS!
The enemy sends things like this into our lives to disappoint us.... cause us to slip backward into despair but the Lord will use our pain to allow his love to shine if we can allow Christ to be greater in us than he that is in the world........
Psalm 16: 7-8
I bless the LORD who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.
Today I'm trusting that God is near the down cast and broken hearted and that brings peace to my heart!
