Getting Our Attention

I’ve believed this for a number of years now and coming across this verse in the Bible this morning reaffirmed my sentiments.

Job 36
15Hard times and trouble 
 are God’s way of getting our attention! 
16And at this very moment, 
 God deeply desires to lead you from trouble 
 and to spread your table with your favorite food.  

Looking back in my life, Verse 15 has been spot-on in what it says. No denying it.

Every time you feel like something isn’t going right, or when things actually seem to be at their worst…those are the best times to get closer to God and the times when truly good things are being planned for your life.

As always, we have to believe this and trust this. As always, I am aware and living proof that it’s not always easy to do.

However, I hope you’ll really consider what these words say. It will likely change the way you perceive the rough spots in your life. Keeping an open mind and a receptive heart just might also bring you the peace of mind you’re looking for and quite possibly the resolution to the conflicts or troubles in your life.

It’s advice that I need to take as well.

Have a good day today, friends. God bless.
