God chooses what we go through. We choose how we go through it.


I asked God for strength, that I might achieve,
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things,
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy,
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power, that I might be wise,
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life,
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for –
but everything I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself,
my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men, most richly blessed.

I lift up my eyes to the hills – where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the master of Heaven and Earth. Psalm 121:1-2

Father I desire that when each of us is going through difficult times or tragedy that we would realize that you wish for us to come closer to you, not move further away from you. That we will indeed draw closer to you, dear God! I pray that we will allow you to wrap your loving arms around us. To give us not only the comfort and strength that we need in these times, but that you will guide us in the proper direction as we seek to find new meaning and purpose in our altered lives. That we will not forget the good that has come into our lives and that we will remember that you will never hurt us and you only want the very best for us. I pray that you will love and heal us. We praise your mighty name.
In Jesus’ name we Thank You. Amen

God talks to each of us at different times in our lives. Is today the day God is talking to you? Is today the day you finally give in to Him? Is today the day you come face to face with God? Is today the day you finally allow God to wrap His loving arms around you and start to let Him lead and direct your life? God wants you just as you are today, hurt and suffering. He will comfort and heal you. Today can be the first day to the rest of your life, a day into eternity with God the Father. Come now. God is expecting you. He wants you to do it publicly. Come now.
