How deep the Father's love for us. How vast beyond all measure. That He should give His only Son. And make a wretch His treasure...
Do you know this song? It's playing in my head as I type this. How Deep the Father's Love For Us.
Without going into any great detail, I must say that it has been an interesting year. Stressful. Life's challenges never seem to let up. Just when I think we might be through the worst of it, another obstacle presents itself. Faith is tested. Patience is stretched and perseverance becomes the only way to proceed. And through it all, God is faithful to provide a peace that passes all understanding and a joy that is unspeakable.
He draws me closer. And because I know the wonder of being close to the Father, I thank Him for allowing the trials.
Dear sweet friend, if you are in the thick of it, don't let go of the faith. I promise you God is the only thing that will make sense of the struggle. Maybe not immediately, but down the road. You will see His goodness. He is faithful. He loves you.
