Having you ever wondered if you’d make it through a trying season?
We’re living in a trying season right now, with the current coronavirus pandemic. Maybe you’re wondering how long it will last, or if you and your loved ones will make it through unscathed. Maybe you’re wondering if your business will survive or if our economy will pull through.
With all the uncertainty that comes with walking through a valley, we do have one absolutely assurance— God is walking with us. The Psalmist writes,
“Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 [bold added for emphasis]
Today I woke up with a word on my heart— THROUGH. Getting through tough times isn’t easy, but it’s definitely possible once we become aware of God’s presence with us.
I’d like to invite you to watch this video and share with friends. If you’ve been encouraged, please like/comment/ on YouTube, and subscribe to hear more uplifting stories.Continue reading “Getting THROUGH the Valley [Video, approx 10 minutes]”
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. Psalm 34:18
I love that God makes a point to tell us in Psalm 34 that He is CLOSE to the broken-hearted. He didn’t have to tell us that. The Word already tells us that God is “with us.”
Thought for the day…
“If I were to say, ‘God, why me?’ about the bad things, then I should have said, ‘God, why me?’ about the good things that happened in my life.” – Arthur Ashe
God turned my sorrow into joyful dancing, as you just saw in this video, which I choreographed and danced to give God glory and testify of His goodness and love! If you’re hurting and in need of hope, I’d like to invite you to read on. This is the story behind the video (set to the music “Praise You in This Storm”), which tells how I experienced God’s presence and power through praise and worship. I pray it will be an encouragement to you.
