Things Hoped For

When we talk of comes so easy when life is moving along without any bumps in the road. But then life throws us a curve or we just don't know what is around the bend. Sometimes illness just happens, a death of a loved one, disappointment or maybe an attack that you just did not see coming. It is then that we have to look beyond our feelings and emotions to see the hand of God even though we may not see His hand or understand His plan. 

God often allows difficult circumstances into our lives. And He promises to take what others mean for harm and mold it for our good. He longs to grow our faith. 

As a child of an alcoholic, I became paralyzed very early with fear.  After I became a child of God He began to replace that fear with faith. Once in awhile that paralyzing fear creeps back up. It is then that I stop and remember all the fearful things in life that God has already delivered me from. 

The presence of hard times or circumstances never negates God's love for me or you. In fact, God loves us so much that He lovingly and patiently replaces our fear with faith if only we walk with Him. It is up to us to choose to have faith no matter what our eyes may see around us. Our God is so good and we can trust his heart even when we can not see His hand.
