God's Mercy

I love the early morning.

The sunlight paints the sky with soft hues of pink and the grass glistens with dew.

The fresh cool air awakens my senses ; the stillness of the morning comforts my soul.

As my eyes drink up the beauty of the morning, I remember -

"God's mercy is new everyday."

When Troubles Come

Word for the week: TRUST
Bible Verse: Proverbs 3:5 and 6 NKJV

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

The past four weeks I seem to have hit a bump in the road; that happens sometimes. Things didn't go the way I planned. Problems popped up I didn't count on. To say the least, it's been crazy.

I've learned when times like this come to be still and wait. So that's what I've been doing; waiting until I could get back to writing. Praying that God would bring peace and stillness to my heart so I could hear His voice; and like always, He has.

God is faithful to hear my prayers even when the road is bumpy, and even when my heart is filled with frustration or fear. It's then, I grow deeper in my knowledge of and my faith in God's faithfulness.

I've spent time pondering the importance of troubling times. It's the looking back and knowing God was there with me then, that gives me courage for this present time of trouble. Trusting Him even though I don't understand. Trusting Him even when it feels like I'm not going to survive.

My Prayer:
Dear Jesus help me to trust you each step of the way no matter what I see, hear or feel. Thank you for hearing my prayers.
