Hope. “Our hope, indeed our help, comes from the Lord”
Faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Love. Our Lord Jesus’ greatest commandment. “You shall love your Lord God with all of your heart, and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this “Love your neighbor as yourself”..
With all of these, as With God, All Things Are Possible 🙂
We all suffer through tough times. Perhaps it is an illness, perhaps a job loss, perhaps the loss of someone or something we loved. Perhaps it is someone we love who is suffering. But either way, we are hurting and we can’t help but ask, “Where is God”. But Jesus did not leave, He is right here with us.
Being Christian does not mean we will not hurt or suffer. It simply means Jesus will walk through it with us. And believe me, I would rather walk through tough times with Jesus-than without…
Funny how the better something is for us, the more we find ways not to do it! Praying for me is like breathing, it’s just part of me. And perhaps the best part of me. But it wasn’t always so.
Prayer is what connects us to our Lord. And whether we are praising, thanking, pleading or just sharing our day with God, it all matters. And it’s all good. For prayer is a way of sharing our lives with God.
For Prayer, as Mathew West says in his song, Forgiveness, helps us “to love the unloveable and reach the unreachable”.
And when we are facing difficult times, the need for prayer becomes so easy to see, but we need to see it as clearly on our good days as well!
Being Christian does not mean we will not have troubles, Jesus said we would. It just means God Himself will walk through them with us 🙂
Keep Praying, especially when you don’t feel like it. And if you can’t think of a prayer, just say Jesus 🙂
Stood outside of a Harris Teeter for two hours waiting to get in today. This storm truly brings out the best and the worst in people, but Jesus always brings out the best 🙂
There is nothing more beautiful than the sun after a Hurricane, Thanking God 🙂
Near Wilmington, Only God is powerful enough to move a Hurricane . In Jesus’ We Pray 🙂 #Pray for Wilmington!
“We know that in ALL things God works for the good of those who love Him”. Even Hurricanes
following Jesus does not mean life will be easy or that we will be perfect. In fact, the opposite may be true. I know it has been for me. It just means that Jesus will walk every step of our lives with us and that we will come home to Heaven!
And personally, I can share from experience, that walking with Jesus makes all and any hardships easier to carry. Burdens shared, are always lightened. And prayer changes things 🙂
