So Faithful!

He abides faithful!

I am thankful for the promises of God in His Word. He brings those things into our lives that will cause us to grow. We serve such a loving, blessed, wise God. I hope that you are encouraged today that no matter what you are going through, God is faithful and His love sustains you through it. His grace is sustaining me and our family at this time.

I am thankful for my husband, for dear family members and for church family and Christian friends' encouragement and help day by day. Syd and I have special friends who call on the phone to share prayer requests and who we can encourage (and they especially encourage us) in the Lord. We have other special ones who come alongside to physically help us in trials and troubles. Thank you; thank the Lord!

"There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." I Cor. 10:13

I am thankful that He reminded me of this verse all week (it was hidden in my heart years ago) to remind me that my/our trial is not unique. It is given for a reason and He sustains us in it and will bring us out!  What a personal God we serve!
