Lately it seems like everyone I know, is having an issue in their lives, no matter what it is, it can be very difficult. After 25 years of marriage Michael and I have had our moments, like everyone does. Of heartbreak, pain, hurt, illness, worries, all these things can happen in our extended families and friends, which effect all of those around us. There are times when we feel all alone or when is the next big thing going to happen.
Life is hard, no one ever said it would be easy. We all have times of joy but getting through the hard times are I believe, who God is making us into. Michael and I started our marriage with drug and alcohol abuse and I can really say I wouldn’t change a thing. It has made us both into the people we are today. Being a young mother and having these issues, I felt all alone but even in the darkest moments, I know my father was with me.
This prayer is a really good one to remember when you are hurting, struggling and just don’t know what to do. I find when I’m really hurting, I can barely pray for myself, its so hard for me to find the words. I am comforted to know that my father, my God, knows my hurts and knows my thoughts and prayers before they even come off my lips. To find serenity in just knowing you are not alone, ever. That is so amazing, that he knows all things. Yes, and sometimes we have to have courage and not know what’s going to happen in the end. To just have faith, trust and hope, in things not seen.
So have faith, hope, and love and know you are never alone. He hears your thoughts, needs and knows all things.
More to come later!
Philippians 4:6-7 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
