Thankful Thursday....doubts and comforts

Psalms 94:19 In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.

During trials and troubles it is so easy to let the world lead us into may doubts and anxieties that can affect our faith.... we often may ask ourselves 'why would God allow _______ to happen' .... we can all fill in the blank.... it may be different to each of us but the thoughts are all to often the same. For me, during this time in our lives I have caught myself asking that same question.... why is God allowing us to be so humbled during these past few months.... how can He bring us to a point that we are so dependent on others at this time.... others for housing, others for financial help, others for just about each aspect of our lives..... then I remember this verse.... 'Your comforts delight my soul.' God wants us to be dependant on HIM.... for HE wants to use others in our lives to help teach us more of HIS mercy and glory.... .we as HIS children have that great and precious promise of the Good News....and then when we have truly delighted in HIS comforts... and learned the lesson we so desperately need from HIM ..... then HE can use us in the life of another to help them learn more..... what a wonderful cycle of grace. I can say my soul is learning daily to delight in HIS comforts. I can say I am more thankful each day for the people in my life, for all that we can say we are blessed with and for God teaching me that my only relief is in HIM. And for the knowledge that adversities will not last always.... that there is a promised rest for all of God's people.

We may not see His plan until we are on the other side of our trial...or even on the other side of life...but we can always be confident that He has a plan and He is working it out on our behalf...thanks for sharing!!

Excellent. The bottom line is that God wants us to become more like Him.
We are refined and molded and shaped our trials. We handle them better when we count them all joy as James reminds us. :)Thanks for sharing. Blessings.
