Good afternoon BBB friends! Thank you all so much for checking in today. Let me just start by saying this has been a rough last couple of weeks for my community. Many deaths, sicknesses, injury’s, and difficult times have been front and center in my county. However, despite these trying times, it serves as a time to remind myself as well as those around of the goodness of our God. It can be easy to get bogged down when life hits you hard one thing after another but I am here to proclaim the truth that God is so much bigger and he is going to use these trials for His glory. Psalms 119:50 says, “My comfort in my suffering is this: your promise preserves my life.” God is in control and He is going to use every uncomfortable situation and every bit of our suffering to bring light to His Holy Name. I am sure you already know this, but when you are enduring a hard time or a moment when you feel fear, anxiety, worry, or hurt it is so important that’s our first step of action is prayer. Prayer is the best medication and treatment to put you at ease. God will comfort you in all of the times, which we should then turn around and use to comfort others. It is through small acts like this that we share the love of God and help bring more and more people to Him. The Word will comfort us every time when we have faith and trust that God will never fail us. He will never leave you alone of let you down. Philippians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious in anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.” We have to make our needs known to God and He will carry you though no matter what your facing. I challenge you to reread these words and remind yourself of the unending comfort God has made available for you and me. Pray to him and thank him for all he has done and continues to do if your life. Be thankful for the highs but also grateful for the lows that allow us to see God’s power.
