Sometimes, life just gets hard, doesn’t it? Things don’t seem to add up. Frustration, sadness, even confusion can all set in.
Why doesn’t it seem to be working out? You might be asking that question right now. I’ve asked that question before…totally get it.
Heard this song today and thought it might bring you some encouragement if you’re in this place at the moment.
God will meet you exactly where you are. His kindness never ends, even when life doesn’t make sense.
“You’re with me still.”
Praise Him! Amen.
The big day has arrived. It’s Christmas!
Are you excited? Or, does Christmas mean something less than happiness for you this year? If the latter is you, I understand. I’ve had some tough Christmas seasons in my life in previous years.
There’s something about Christmas that is so special…and at the same time, when life isn’t going the way you wish it would, Christmas seems to magnify that for whatever reason.
I just want to encourage you that if that is you, just know that you are loved. So much, in fact, that God sent His only son to this world for you and me to give us the gift of life. Eternal life! It’s the gift of hope, and it’s available at any time.
I hope that will provide some comfort if you are in a difficult season right now. We get to celebrate the birth of a Savior today, and He’s with us, through it all.
1 Peter 1:3-7
Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is so good, and by raising Jesus from death, he has given us new life and a hope that lives on. God has something stored up for you in heaven, where it will never decay or be ruined or disappear.
You have faith in God, whose power will protect you until the last day. Then he will save you, just as he has always planned to do. On that day you will be glad, even if you have to go through many hard trials for a while. Your faith will be like gold that has been tested in a fire. And these trials will prove that your faith is worth much more than gold that can be destroyed. They will show that you will be given praise and honor and glory when Jesus Christ returns.
We’ve all searched for the light of day in the dead of night We’ve all found ourselves worn out from the same old fight. We’ve all run to things we know just ain’t right. There’s a better life.
If you’ve got pain, He’s a pain taker. If you feel lost, He’s a way maker If you need freedom or saving, He’s a prison-shaking Savior. If you’ve got chains, He’s a chain breaker!
I love this song, and the message in it.
Don’t let your chains hold you back anymore!
Believe that God will set you free. He’s waiting to do it…just reach out to Him and ask.
Have a great day.
