This Time Tomorrow...

How can you tell about what you can't tell about?  Sometimes the ownership of your troubles belongs squarely with someone else and telling would be a trust violation.  Sometimes the answers belong, for the moment, to someone else and there's nothing but to wait and see.

But this time tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that, I want to be found unchanged...

Having the same sense of His love for me.
The same assurance of His provision and grace.
The same certainty that He is with me through all of life's highs and lows.

And the never-ending peace that comes from knowing that, "we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.  We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed."  2 Corinthians 4:7-9

My precious sister, I don't have answers...but God does. We can REST in Him. Let the world swirl about us, let the enemy try to distract us, let LIFE bring dismay. We are not OF it. Yes, we have to deal with it, "PRESSING on toward the goal" (2 Cor 3:14)but TAKE IT IN YOUR BONES that God will never forsake you. After the morning we've had together and separately, we KNOW that HE'S GOT YOU! The enemy is poking you with a lot of sticks right now but God WRENCHES them out of his hand to reveal the blessing, grace and mercy...whatever the circumstance. This is the opportunity to PUT OUR BOOTS ON and to PUT OUR FAITH INTO ACTION! THIS is what we're made to do. THIS is what we've been training for! You CAN do this! -- And when you can't, God will provide directly or through others. Just make sure you let Him and look for it with EXPECTATION. You are SO loved, my precious sister, and your faith family will be here to help you up if ever you stumble.
