I had not planned to post anything today but as I am sitting here in my prayer time enjoying our snow in Alabama. I was thinking some people, in the south, wait all year hoping to see just a little snow. Some years we may get a little and other years we do not but people hang on to that hope. This hope is renewed each winter and the anticipation begins for adults and children alike. This morning I have seen numerous pictures on Facebook of people’s homes, yards and automobiles covered in snow. People here are enjoying this moment with their friends and family because we know it is only here for a little while. We know by tonight or tomorrow we will only have the pictures and the memories we have made today because it will be gone.
As I was thanking God and admiring his work, I began to think how many people today are hanging on to hope just waiting for their season. You may be going through something right now and feel like God has left you and you are thinking about giving up because you are running out of hope. Please know today that God will never leave you and your season is coming. What you are going through right now will end and your joy will return. Hang on to your faith and your hope in Jesus today. If you are on the verge of giving up pull out your memory box and pictures of all the blessings God has given you throughout your life and use those to get you through this difficult time. You will see in that memory box that this is not the first difficult situation or time in your life and that God brought you through it then and he will bring you through it now.
A dear friend of mine told me that God likes for us to pray his word to him and remind him of what he said he would do. So, get in the word and begin to quote scriptures to God in your prayer. Remind him he said he would never leave you or forsake you. Remind him he said he would fight for you and that all you had to do was be still. Remind him that he said in our weakness he would be our strength. Remind him his word says all things work together for the good of those who love him.
I hope this helps someone today as I feel God gave this to me today for someone specific. I don’t know who you are but God does. God knows your situation. He knows your pain, sadness, and disappointments and he is there with you. Please don’t give up today just hold on God is coming!
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day in Jesus Christ!!
