hope 9

In this world there will be trials and troubles (John 16:33), of this I am sure!  God never promised us a walk in the Garden, with the exception of Adam and Eve who let go of all that God had laid before them in a single moment.  Since the first day sin came in to existence, when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, man and woman have been struggling.  But take heart, our struggles are not in vain.

God takes the struggles, trials, and extremes of life, and brings strength, perseverance, and hope (Romans 5:3-5) to the human heart. Never are you left to traverse the chaos of this world, nor the consequences of your actions alone. God promises that He will never leave you nor forsake you (1 Chronicles 28:20). He also loves you with a love that never ends (Romans 5:5).

The world may bring pressure and conflict. Your life may be filled with devastation and depression. You may have made a mistake, and be reaping the harsh consequences that have come because of it. However, rest assured, God is holding you through it all. He may give you more than you can handle alone, but He never gives you more than you can handle when you let Him lead. With God at the helm of your heart, you can do all things (Philippians 4:13).

NO matter the battle, no matter the depth of despair, no matter the struggle, no matter the anxiety or fear, no matter the insecurities or longings, no matter the sin…..let God lead you to a place of peace, surety, and comfort.

All my love, and may you find strength in the Lord to carry on, moving past it all!

Hugs and blessings ❤
