16 Come and hear, all you who fear God,
and I will tell what he has done for my soul.
17 I cried to him with my mouth,
and high praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened.
19 But truly God has listened;
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God,
because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me!
This spoke to me today. I returned to faith a month ago and I feel that the Lord has healed me in so many ways, it saddens me to think that I had turned away from Him for so long. God is so good, I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful God. Thank you, ladies, for helping me with this journey–these comments are so helpful when I’m reading daily! May the Lord bless you all!
Thank you for sharing this, Nicole! You’re right – we have an amazing God. So glad you stopped by!
So blessed by your post! God is so good!! Celebrating with you!
The trials and tribulations we go through only bring glory to God! Psalm 66:9-12
SO AWESOME to think about His Awesomeness! Our problems melt before His glory!
‘By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness’ — when I read this it struck me how awesomely jaw-dropping it is when humanity sees God’s power at work, and yet God has to hold back 99.9% of his power because his full power and glory revealed to us would totally obliterate us, and we exist in the confined space of time. Like how no one can see God and live, and Moses’ face shined so bright when he saw God vanishing away that no one could even look at him when he returned to the people! And yet we set up idols that we worship more, and think that we deserve glory and honor too. Humbled before God this morning
Psalm 66:10-12 stuck out to me this evening: “For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried…yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.” Gives me hope and encouragement to pursue my relationship with Christ and know that the tests are meant to strengthen-not break-my faith.
I’ve been losing my hair for about 1.5 years now, for various reasons I’m sure (medication changes, dietary changes, stress). The stress of it all has consumed my life, my thoughts, everything. Even when I try and lay it before God I can’t. I keep holding onto the idea that when I get better then I’ll be myself and be happy again. But what if I don’t get better? Will I be sad and angry at God forever? I truly don’t want that. I want to be content with my life no matter the circumstance. I want to find my identity and my confidence in Jesus, not in my appearance where it’s been most of my life. This has been a trial and a test on my faith and I ask for prayer in letting go of this and resting in God. Sometimes I feel I can’t truly give it away because I see it every time I look in the mirror. God give me eyes to see my true value, beauty and worth, which is not in myself or my abilities, but in you alone.
Hi Dana, I can relate to you but with a different physical struggle of mine that cannot be cured. Yes, let’s put our trust and faith in God for our weakness is our strength in him. I will pray for you sister!
