These verses below have been very helpful to me during this time of waiting on the Lord! We will update in greater detail in weeks to come, but for now we want to thank you for going to the Throne of grace on our behalf. We trust the Lord. We know that He has been faithful in the past; therefore we can trust He will continue to be faithful. I pray that for those who are reading this blog, may find comfort in their season of trial. I can testify that Jesus is enough. He is with His children through the valley of shadow of death and promises to lead us all the way. And friends, He is doing that for us. Praise Him for keeping us through this suffering! Praise Him for not letting us go! And ultimately we praise Him for giving us the gift of eternal life through Jesus, His Son.
“Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
you hold my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but
God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
For behold, those who are far from you shall perish;
you put an end to everyone who is unfaithful to you.
But for me it is good to be near God;
I have made the Lord God my refuge,
that I may tell of all your works.”
Mark was explaining the other night to some of our friends how Psalm 13 has been a great comfort to him. He started to weep when he heard the last two verses of that Psalm. Praise the Lord that this is true for those who have been called by God and given this gift of faith in Jesus!! God has dealt bountiful with us, indeed. And for eternity we will bask in His goodness and love!
“But I have trusted in your steadfast love;
my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
because he has dealt bountifully with me.”
