It's been a very long time since I posted an Inspiration Thursday. And while I am not saying that I intend to bring back the weekly post, I believe that there will be the occasional song or Scripture passage that will trigger an inspirational thought that I feel prompted to share. That happened recently as I was watching a video by Mercy Me.
We've all been where this song is. Things aren't going well, in fact our
life is a mess on some level. We've heard all of the cliche verses from
friends and loved ones, intending to encourage us and and give us hope.
The fact is we are just putting one foot in front of the other, trying
to get to the next day, hoping it will be better. Our faith is
challenged and it takes all the faith we have just to move forward.
God's people are not immune from difficulties. We suffer the same
calamities as the world around us. As the song says, it's easy to sing
praises to God when we're on the mountain top, but not so much when we
are walking through the valley. Regardless of where we find ourselves in
this journey called life, the Christian must always trust in the
providence of God. Our life is not a surprise to Him. In Jeremiah 1:5
God says, "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you." It is okay to
weep over our circumstances. It is okay to take time to consider our
place in this world. It's okay to cry out to God to release us from our
difficulty. The question is, what is our response if He says "No, or Not
right now." It is in those times that we must say to our Creator, "Even
if You don't, my hope is in You alone." Regardless of the trials and
tribulations that this expedition called life may contain, as long as I have my
Savior, "It is Well With My Soul." Have blessed day.
