I will be forever grateful for the way Jesus has turned my life around. But I am also grateful for the pain that has touched my life. Pain has undeniably taken me to my knees. And that is where I found a deep intimacy with Christ.
the past decade, I have learned that it is in times of trouble
that we see the Glory of God the most. Whatever you are facing
in your life at this moment, know that it is a beautiful
opportunity to see the Maker of the Universe do a mighty work in
your life. Seek Him with ALL YOUR HEART, and you will hear His
voice shouting words of encouragement in the midst of your pain.
"God whispers to us in
pleasures, speaks to us in conscience, but shouts in our
pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf word. " C.S. Lewis
Be encouraged and listen
intently for His voice. He is waiting to lift your heart up!
up the Body of Christ to You today. I pray that each one
would fall to his or her knees in submission to You and grow
closer to You. Lord, will You draw the broken ones into Your
love? Let them see Your glory in their lives. Let them
discover the secrets of Your Kingdom and know You fully and
completely. Turn the hearts of the fathers to their children
and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous to make
ready a people prepared for Your return. Let the Church rise
up and be all it is called to be. I trust You, Lord, to do
great and mighty things for Your Kingdom. Amen.
2 Corinthians 7:6 (NLT)
But God, who encourages those who are
discouraged, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus.
