God’s Words To Us

I know everything about you
Your strengths and your weaknesses
Remember, I gave them to you.
Nothing you do or say
Or think or desire
Will surprise me, for I already know it.
Trust me even when you can’t see what
I am doing in your life
I will reveal it when you are ready.
Persevere, for it increases your character
And character will give you hope and assurance
That you will come out the other side
One day you will see how all the pieces of the puzzles of your life
Fit together to form a beautiful picture I have planned
I will surround you with all you need
Friends and family, wisdom and knowledge.
You will receive them when you need them.
Trust me, for I am not a liar.
I speak only truth.
I am the path for you to follow
I am the TRUTH you must hang onto
I am the LIFE that you need.
I love you to the ends of the earth and
I will never leave you or forsake you.
I am faithful and will bring about my purposes in your life.
I am working to grow you in ways you cannot see.
And my plans will prevail.
You must simply hold fast to what never changes.
You must hold onto me.

God tells us all these things in the Bible. Which one(s) comfort or challenge you most? Don't forget to join the conversation.

The first stanza about God giving us our strengths and our weaknesses is a reminder that each of us has a reason to be the way we are.

Beautifully expressed, Ellen

Each of us is unique and God has a reason for it.

"Persevere, for it increases your character
And character will give you hope and assurance"

This is the part that resonates with me the most. Beautifully written Ellen! If only we can persevere through this life the rewards will be so great!

Yep--it's true. Perseverance is hard, but I believe it'll be worth it in the end. I have to tell myself that many times.
