Step by Step

6.14.2010

It's so easy to trust God and know that He is good when everything is going the way that you believe it should. It's the times where you don't know if you'll have enough money for the energy bill or enough to eat tomorrow or if your home will still be yours next week. It's those moments that your faith will be shaken, but it's up to you whether or not you will allow it to break.

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I will admit right now, I am not always joyful and I definitely don't give thanks all the time. But this is not an optional thing. This is something that our God has commanded of us and it is something that I know I'll be trying to achieve the rest of my days here on Earth. I have found myself praying more often throughout the day. Not necessarily long, in depth prayers, but just small conversations with God as I go through my day to day tasks. It's an extremely comforting thing and it allows me to see how much it means and how much I gain by being in constant communication with God.

Our God is a merciful God and He loves His children. In times of struggle and uncertainty, He is still God.  So though the world around is attempting to break us, His strength keeps us together.

"Whatever is true...think about such things...And the God of peace will be with you."
Philippians 4:8-9
