That whatever God has in store for us, He will equip us for. That’s been the case for me, time and again. In my craziest of times, in my darkest hours, and in my hair-pulling moments, there He is. In the midst of it all, just like that, out of the blue – a way thru. Have you ever experienced that? Have you ever been infused with His peace when worry was crushing you? Or felt a sudden flush of strength when you thought you couldn’t go on? Or, one of my favorites, ever been freaked out by His timing? It is absolutely amazing. You just have to believe. You just have to trust.
For His awesomeness, I am so thankful.
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
[Note: In case you’re not Spanglish-speaking, “si Dios quiere” means God-willing. Mom finished most of her sentences with that. I added it to my sendoff after her departure].
What are you thankful for today?
“There are no ‘if’s’ in God’s world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – let us pray that we may always know it!”
-Corrie ten Boom
“I do not understand the mystery of grace–only that it meets us where we are, but does not leave us where it found us.”
“I’ve seen the lighting flashing,
I’ve heard the thunder roll,
I’ve felt sin’s breakers dashing,
Trying to conquer my soul;
But I heard the voice of Jesus,
Telling me still to fight on,
Because He promised never to leave me,
Never to leave me alone.”
