God is Still in Control

I am convinced that God is still in control…that He is still faithful.

Are you going through a season that is:

  • Almost unbearable
  • Difficult
  • Overwhelming
  • Long
  • Seems Impossible
  • Frightening
  • Depressing
  • Challenging

Do you believe, that it is possible, that there is good in it somewhere…somehow?  I know, that sounds crazy doesn’t it?

My husband and I have been going through a season for almost 3 years now that has been challenging to say the least.  Don’t even get me started on all the details but trust me when I tell you that just when I thought it was impossible for God to show up….He always did.  Time and time again God has shown us to be faithful.

Looking back over the last couple of years I can see so much good that has taken place in the midst of this big storm.

Just to name a few:

  • Our faith and trust in God has strengthened
  • There is a peace in our home instead of worry and anger
  • We are learning how to wait upon the Lord

I would say that those few things that I just named are worth it…are worth going through something that has been refining us for the good.  I want to encourage you that no matter how challenging your storm may seem….God is always there.

Verses that have encouraged me during this storm:

  • James 1:2-4  Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

 

  • Romans 5:3-5  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

 

  • Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

 

  • Psalm 46:10  Be still and know that I am God.

 

  • Psalm 37:7  Be still in the presence of the LORD and wait patiently for him to act.

Be encouraged my friends, God is still in control and He will prove Himself to be faithful…trust Him.

Be Love, Give Love
