And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV
God renews a spirit of hope, when we faithfully call on Him and believe in the power of His will. He has a plan. There IS a purpose for our days. He prepares us to examine our hearts and allows us to see what needs to be noticed. And, when we have humbled our hearts in truth, He opens our eyes to His will.
While we are reflecting, Jesus helps us remember how very much we are loved. He makes His presence known in ways we never could have imagined and leads us where we learn to follow. He takes burdens from our hearts and shows us how to recognize we are being held by His strength. And, when we have humbled ourselves to receive, He nurtures the heart of our love.
When God fills us with love, it stays in our hearts forever. It is constant and everlasting. He is always with us! But, sometimes it becomes hidden under layers of worry and doubt. We store it deep inside and forget where to find it. But, when we learn to totally trust, God shows how He is working in our lives.
We must learn to trust in God. We won’t be able to feel the power of His presence, unless we humble our hearts and recognize how peace comes in surrender. God has the power to change our lives and remind us who’s in charge of our days. He will place HOPE in the hearts of those who seek Him. And, He will help us clearly see how He's working in our days.
Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love. Forgive us when we forget who is working for the good. Ready us to serve You with all of our hearts and prepare us to find peace in Your plans of purpose. We will trust You all the days of our lives and never forget how lucky we are to be loved by YOU. Amen
