I have been up since 3 A.M. toiling away on this work project. We’ve got a very busy day of packing, work, signing papers, appointments, etc. We are blessed to have these “Troubles” though. Last year at this time we didn’t know if we were going to have a place to live, if my cancer was completely gone, and a host of other life-changing troubles. I am not saying these things to brag about our recent good fortunes, but to give those who are going through trials hope. We went through 6 years of hardship. There were times when we wanted to give up,but we couldn’t. Either can you. Keep praying. Keep believing. KNOW that God has your best interest in His plan. I know it’s so hard to do when you look around and ask why. Oh how we know. Take some time out today and find anything and everything that you are grateful for and focus on those. Praise the Lord for what you do have, and escape the prison of dwelling on what you don’t. Hang in there, you have our prayers…The finish line is just ahead.
Romans 5:3-4 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,
