Getting Through It

The Survivor’s Creed by Max Lucado . . . You will get through this.  It won't be painless.  It won't be quick.  But God will use this mess for good.  Don't be foolish or na├»ve.  But don't despair either.  With God's help, you'll get through this. . . . (HopefortheBrokenHearted.com)



                       I know of many people today who are hurting for different reasons.  I thought I would share this poem of encouragement to help them persevere.   James 1;12  ''Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.''  James 5;11  ''As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.''
                      As the poem says, it's going to hurt and healing takes time but remember there is purpose in our struggles that benefit us.  Look for what God is trying to show you.  God is with us in all things and that is a comfort beyond all measure.
