A week ago I asked my friends on Facebook to give me a go to scripture. I was weary, burdened, my heart hurt and my emotions we so very low. Over 25 friends took time to respond and in no particular order I am meditating on the scriptures that they shared and also praying for them at the same time.
So first would you join me and pray for my friend Candice. Lord we lift Candice and her sweet family up to you. I ask that you keep them safe and warm during this winter season and that their home be filled with love and laughter. I praise you for Candice hearing your small still voice and offering me a Word for my time of need.
OK, so Candice suggested Ephesians 3:20.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is a work in us. --Ephesians 3:20
The Father is amazing. He has a plan for us that we can't even begin to imagine. We may wish our paths started differently but in the end we know that God is and has been there right with us...all along. In good times and bad. It's difficult right now for me to see where God is in a situation that our family is experiencing right now. But I know years from now, maybe even months I will look back and see glimpses of Him all over this part of our testimony.
He doesn't just bring us to the edge of the fires or rough waters, He walks us straight through them. A good shepherd, always aware, always alert. If we stay silent long enough we can feel His presence. The presence of the Lord is comforting to me. I know He is with me forever and always.
