But what happens when our world seems shattered and the rug pulled out from beneath our feet. How do we respond?
Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. Psalms 55:22
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” Hebrews 13:5
So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. 1 Peter 1:6-7
For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
Jesus I know you are in control. You have a plan for my life and you are going before me and alongside of me on this journey. Thank you for interceding on my behalf. Help me to bear the burdens of my brothers and sisters and minister to them in compassion and love. Give me a word of encouragement for someone in need. Amen.
