Trials are Temporary

A well-cared-for earthly life will grow like a green, healthy field, full of beautiful flowers, ripe for harvest. Yet, this field will wither, storms will destroy crops, and flowers will fall as seasons change. But, God’s Word endures forever.

When we decided to follow Jesus, we made a place for His Word to grow in our hearts. Our flesh will fail, but now with this seed planted in us we will live forever. Trials are temporary, but God’s Word in us—His life in us—is permanent.

Thank you God!!

This is exactly what I needed to hear this morning. It was the message in my morning devotional. I love it when God uses a devotional, scripture, or song to speak to me. I am struggling this week and He has been faithful in reminding me of his promises. He is my rock, my shelter from the storm, my healer, and my redeemed. Because he lives, I also have life. He shows me how to live life to the fullest and have peace despite my circumstances.

The things of the this world will fade away, but my relationship with Him  is everlasting and beyond my full understanding. I am so glad God baffles me. If I had a God who I could understand, He would not be that great of a God. My God is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and he loves me and you! He wants His children to call on His name and ask for forgiveness so he may dwell in our hearts. All we need to do is ask. It is by faith and not our actions that we are made to new. “He wants us as we are, not how we ought to be.” He will heal our brokenness if we let him and our sins will be washed away. ❤

Drops in the Ocean

By Hawk Nelson

I want you as you are not as you ought to be
Won’t you lay down your guard and come to me
The shame that grips you now is crippling
It breaks my heart to see you suffering
‘Cause I am for you
I’m not against you

If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I’d say you are forgiven
It’s more than the drops in the ocean,

Don’t think you need to settle for a substitute
When I’m the only love that changes you
And I am for you
I’m not against you
I am for you
I’m not against you

If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I’d say you are forgiven
It’s more than the drops in the ocean

Open your heart it’s time that we start again, oh oh oh
Open your heart it’s time that we start again, oh oh oh

If you wanna know how far my love can go
Just how deep
Just how wide
If you wanna see how much you mean to me
Look at my hands
Look at my side
If you could count the times I’d say you are forgiven
It’s more than the drops in the ocean, ooh ooh
The drops in the ocean, woah
I am for you
I’m not against you
I am for you
I’m not against you
