He has us in His hands....

When we think our trials or struggles are HUGE and we are weary..... He has us in the palm of His hand....

Cast all your cares on Him for He cares for you....
Sometimes life is just hard. I am normally an "up" person. Atleast that is what most say.... I think it has taken the past 20 yrs... to come to a steadfast contentment or peace~knowing that God never said it would be easy or that we would always be happy. He did say that He would never leave us or forsake us.
Nineteen years ago yesterday our home burned. My children were 5 & 2 .... we felt hopeless and homeless. God had us in the palm of His hand. He turned the ashes to beauty. We now live in the country, on five acres .... God's plan was for us to be right here.
As I struggle with with my sustaining longing and wonder how this will all turn out.... I am called to trust and obey.... some days are harder than others. I do question God at times.... I just do not understand and wonder why. His peace washes in.... His ways are not my ways.....
til faith becomes sight.... trust God and do good....
Those who wait hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint. Is. 40:31
May God give you peace today in whatever trials or struggles you are going through. May you see His hand on you.... may you feel His peace.
It is His peace that brings me to the place I am at. When I am down... He picks me up. When I am weak... He is strong.... yes, Jesus loves me. He loves you too.
He knows the end from the beginning.
Til faith becomes sight... trust God and do good.
