I was reading this post by Holly Scheer the other day, and the bare truth in the following lines struck me:
“There is the temptation when things are seemingly hopeless to feel like God has abandoned you. ‘Thy will be done’ is not soothing when you remember that God’s will is not always ours and see that unfolding in a disastrous way. But still His Word holds true in spite of all that your eyes, ears, reason, senses are telling you…
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
Not a cliche, but the Word of the Lord. Not meant to make everything alright in this life, but meant to be believed by faith. The same God who does these things (allows or sends) is the one who is Jesus.”
Thank you, Holly.
