First...I continue to enjoy my time in God's presence. The scripture verses sent by friends, on daily postings, and in my devotional continue to be knit together in the perfect manner to convey just what I need for encouragement and support. In addition to the theme of JOY, I've been learning more about the many ways God reveals Himself in every situation. The following was on a card I received today (again...perfect timing):
Difficult things can cause us to ask, "Why did this happen?" But if we're trusting in Christ we never need to ask, "How could He let this happen?" God may never reveal all His reasons to us, but He has revealed His character to us. His character assures us that He never makes mistakes, is never uncaring, and that He never separates Himself from our need. ~Roy LessinI've posted the song "Even if..." by Kutlass before. Just found this video where the band comments on the song. In less than two minutes you can see God's character. It blew me away when he said, "God cares far more about the end of the story than the middle of the story."
