are you there god?

It’s me…Andrea.

I know you are.  You are here with me right now.  You hold me as the tears fall, you encourage me in your word, your promises speak new life into my sinful, wayward, hurting heart.  And yet, I have to ask.

You have proved over and over again that I can trust you.  I can, right?

That’s when I hear you.  You whisper in my ear…Andrea, I’m here with you, it’s going to be okay, this is right where you are supposed to be, I have your best in mind.  Though it may not feel that way, I have promised you that I am with you.  I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, You are mine.  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you,  When you are afraid, put your trust in me.  Come to me…remember who I am.  I am who I am.

You are good.
You are constant.
You are sovereign.
You are love.
You are faithful.
You are abba.
You are provider.
You are creator.
You are redeemer.
You are God alone.

Lord, this trial may not seem as difficult as what others face, it may seem silly and contrite to others, I can try to be stronger than I am…

But it’s the struggle in our life journey right now, it’s the fight for faith, it’s the daily reminder to trust in who you say you are…and it’s hard.

In the words of Marc Heinrich

When the trial comes, And all hope seems lost,
I will find my strength
In the mighty cross
Only Him…Only Jesus…Only there is joy in sorrow found…

    Two verses that have given me a lot of peace lately...

    Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts & your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy & PEACE as you trust in Him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
