Do you think of yourself as courageous? Do you forge ahead through life without abandon, no matter what’s happening around you? Or, do you sometimes panic? What terrifies you?
It’s hard to be strong every day, especially when life gets hard. Ugly days come all too often. Amen?
I promise, y’all. I was at this point in writing this post, when HH came in the door with the mail. In it was a card from a dear 2 a.m. friend, D. She is one of my friends I’d call for help, even at 2 a.m.
She shared the lyrics to this song in her card, so of course I cried and went straight to YouTube to find it. I had to share it with you. God sent it, special delivery, at just the perfect moment. He is awesome – every day!
Only one day before receiving the card from D, another 2 a.m. friend (G) and I discussed this next verse by phone. How it gives us confidence that we WILL see His goodness in all our life situations (good, bad, or ugly) while we are living. And, how we pray we’ll see His goodness in the lives of our family members soon!
Yet I am confident that I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. (Psalm 27:13)
Can I hear another Amen? We stand on His promises. And, He is faithful.
In the verse following, God gives us more confidence. (You’ve most likely seen it before.)
Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)
I hope that song and God’s Word encourage you as much as they do me. And…I stand in awe of His presence…His mercy…His perfect timing…every day.
Isn’t it nice to know our Lord goes with us and will never forsake us? During times of a trial, what’s your go-to verse?
