Sometimes I scare myself with being so transparent. I begin to write to you all and think…. “I’m definitely not ‘Suzy perfect Christian’!”, “What will they think of me?” “Maybe I should keep these particular thoughts to myself”.
And then I remember 2 Corinthians 1:4.
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
This evening I shared a verse with a friend who’s in the midst of turmoil. I’ve been there, I get turmoil. In fact, due to some very bad choices I’ve made in my lifetime, turmoil and I are on a first name basis. What truly amazes me in my sometimes shaky faith walk, is that this verse has always held true.
Phillipians 4:7. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.
Time after time I’ve felt peace when I should have had the fall-aparts. “Passes all understanding”… Boy did that make sense. “I don’t get this God…by all rights I should be crumbling”.
I guess that’s what Faith is… Believing in the unseen. Knowing that God has my back. Believing that it will all work out… For His good. Over and over He has taken my mess and brought blessing.
Over and over He has guarded my heart. He loves me that much and you too.
