May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
Doubt will try and rob us of our joy. But, God will find the way to fill us full of everything we need to welcome perfect peace. When life creates difficulties and despair, He places peace exactly where we need it and whispers, “I am here”, when we need to be reminded how to trust.
God has a plan for our days. We won’t always understand the timing of His will or recognize how He will choose to lead us. But, in moments meant to strengthen the soul of our weakness, He will pull us closer than before and place HOPE where it will flourish in the love of our faithfulness.
When we have been guided by grace, God will cradle us in His care and He will carry us. He will move us to a place of wholeness. And when our feet have been placed on solid ground, He will help us remember, we will NEVER be without His love.
God will show us how it feels to be joyful. He will help us remember who handles the happenings of our days. He will guide us all the days of our lives and calm us by the presence of His perfect peace. And, He will demonstrate how it feels to finally embrace the gift of a grateful heart.
Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love. Only You are mighty enough to help us find joy, even in our days of doubt. Forgive us when we forget to trust in the power of Your will. Open our hearts to receive You. We will gratefully allow peace to lead us to a place of calm. And, we will never forget who is worthy of our praise in EVERY situation. Ame
