Have you seen this? It circulates through e-mail often, but when I received it from a sweet friend yesterday, it blessed me afresh. I was encouraged, and I just know it will encourage some of you, too.
We complain about the cross we bear
but don’t realize it is preparing us for the
dip in the road
that God can see
and we cannot.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
May the Lord encourage you today in whatever you are facing. His Word assures us that whether we can see it or not: God is Good. God’s Ways are Right. And God is Working. One day, we will see His glory and our good come from every heavy load we are called to bear in this life. And one day, we will be thankful for every one of them. Really. Somehow.
Because that’s how the wonderful God we love and live for redeems every sorrow.
Love to each of you…
