When the world gives up on you. What do you do? Well, for me that is an easy question to answer. I keep looking up to the Lord. For he has not forgotten you. Your life may not be the way you think it should be. You may be facing a tough time. You may even blame yourself for all that has happened in your life. No matter what is going on in your life today. I just do not want you to believe the lies of the world and the enemy. I am here to share some GOOD NEWS of your Lord and Savior. He knows what you are going through. Remember he created not only the World really the universe. He created it all. From the stars to the planets, the insects to all the people and animals everywhere. no matter how you feel today or what you are going through. God has you in the palm of his hand. He will never let anything take you from his hand. In life just live long enough and if you have not gone through something believe me you will. I can share He will be with you through it all. even if you do not believe it, he is not a man that can lie. He knows you through and through. Do I know why or how long you will have to wait on him if you are going through something. No as I write this I am going through my own storm and have been for longer than I want to really share but if you have been following me for any period. You do know my tough times are hard for me. Nevertheless, I know the Lorde is working through it all. Whether I like my storm or not. I know that God has not forgotten about his daughter. I also can share no matter how your life is going good or bad. God is on your side as well. He created you and me so why would he not care about your life. I can only share what I know, and it is not because I am anyone better then you. I just honestly believe the words of our Lord and savior. He shares so much with all of us. You have all that you need to know about what is going on. You just must read about it in God’s word. Trust him with all your life and sit back and watch him work. it is hard to stay prayed up or keep the faith when all is going wrong but stay in prayer and keep the faith. Others may have lost interest in your troubles. People may not understand. I can share that it is not easy when you are going through so much and there is no friend or person that really wats to share with you in your trials. Believe me no one wants to be with someone that is facing tough times. It is sad to share nevertheless, God is just a blink away from you. Even if he feels so far from you. He is working I honestly believe this. Do not give up on your dreams and your hopes. I am even sorry to say the Church may not even be in your corner. Because really, they say they get it but again there is no one like God to come through for you in your time of need. God really wants us to be there for each other but sometimes we need to go through it all by ourselves so when God is done with our troubles there is not one person that we can give credit to. God is the only one that will be standing with you. I wish that I had some magic pill so you will not feel bad or go through your tough times. However, I do have something better that you can hold on to and get you through it all. The storms of life may be so hard for you that you do not know what to do. However, I can say keep looking to the Lord. Keep reading his word. Keep talking with him. Keep praising him with worship. Keep on sharing the Good News about him. Keep standing on his promises. Keep showing up for him each day. He cares for you. He is working behind the scenes. There is just something I do believe that must line up before he changes what you are going through Here is what he says about it all. “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” Psalm 56:3 ESV“For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”” Isaiah 41:13 ESV“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2 ESV“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 ESV“Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. “John 14:27 ESV here are more bible verses to hold on to. Write them out and keep them in the front of your mind to help you through this troubled time. If you are sharing well, I am not going through anything. Even better learn them now so when the time comes you have the armer to use against the evil thoughts that may come with your trial. If you are waiting for the Lord to change your life keep waiting for his glory to come, he promises that your waiting is not for nothing. He shares a lot in his word about waiting on him as well. You are not lazy, or I am sure not trying all that you know to not be in this storm of life but realize that it is not a mistake that this storm has come. He shares as I have shared with you that Jesus never promises an easy life while we are here on earth. Here are some bible verses about waiting for Gods perfect timing. Psalm 145:15-16
The eyes of all looks to You,
And You give them their food in time. open Your handAnd satisfy the desire of every living thing.
Therefore, be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is nearby.
“Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may at once open the door to him when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them.
We also can go to the Book of Peter and see what he shares that the storms of life will come but put all your cares on to the Lord. He tells us that God can manage it all One peter 1:3-10 3Praise be to the God and Father of our LORD Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. 6In all this you rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed
