Why?

It’s the question we’ve all asked since we were little kids. Why?

If you’re like me, it’s one you find yourself asking a lot in life. Why?

If you’re like me, it’s one you find yourself asking God sometimes, or perhaps more often, depending on the circumstances. Why?

Why is there so much hurt and pain, God? Why would You allow this to happen, God? Why doesn’t it make sense, God? Why haven’t You made it clear, God? Why isn’t something changing, God? Why?

I like to know the answer to this question. It can get pretty frustrating when the answer doesn’t seem clear. You too? Alright, glad it’s not just me!

Well, if that is you, then let me challenge you with something I heard the other day. It challenged me, in a good way.

“None of us will ever fully understand God and His ways. If we could, He would not be God and we would never need to learn to trust Him. It is not wrong to want to understand, but our understanding must be secondary to trusting the Lord.”
-Derek Prince

Time for me to start moving the trusting Him thing up to #1 on my list. Something tells me He will reveal the answers at just the right time, in just the right way.

Thanks, God…looking forward to it!

Have a great day.

Take Heart

Take Heart

The events of the past week have been difficult to comprehend at times. It is hard to see so much pain and suffering.

However, nothing that has happened changes this fact: God is always in control, no matter what.

So, here is a challenge to anyone who believes that today. Be a warrior for God! Be bold and don’t be afraid to speak out on His behalf.

The world needs more love, more grace, and more truth. Don’t hold back from spreading God’s message. He will give you the strength to do it…just ask.

Anyone can help change this world for the better. Why not you?

Blessings to all of you today, and every day.

Be Nice

Be Nice

Some things I’ve heard recently have reminded me of an important lesson that seems to be forgotten (well, by all of us, really) from time to time.

Don’t take pleasure in other people’s pain.

After all, everyone is on their own path. As people, we’ve gotta be forgiving to others, just as we are forgiven by God.

Anyway, just felt it was worth mentioning here.

Have a great day, everyone. Be nice to each other and stuff. 🙂

No Matter How it Looks

No Matter How it Looks

Your pain has a purpose.

Your confusion will have a conclusion.

Your stress will turn into success.

Just a quick note to encourage anyone who might need it.

God’s timing is always perfect. No matter how it looks right now, good things are coming your way!

Have a great day, friends.

Yes, You!

‘God is able to take your life, with all of the heartache, all of the pain, all of the regret, all of the missed opportunities, and use you for His glory.’
― Charles R. Swindoll.

Thanks to my pastor for sharing this one on Facebook the other day…thought I’d share it here, too. Hopefully it encourages you today.

Have a great day!
