November 1, Today’s Thought — Disappointed?

The last of the zinnas.

Good Morning

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh:
is there any thing too hard for me?
Jeremiah 32:27

We need to hear that God is still in control.
We need to hear that it’s not over until he says so.
We need to hear that life’s mishaps and tragedies
are not a reason to bail out.
They are simply a reason to sit tight.

Corrie ten Boom used to say.

“When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark,
do you jump out? Of course not.
You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through”. . .

The way to deal with discouragement?
The cure for disappointment?
Go back and read the story of Job.
Read it again and again.
Be reminded that you aren’t the first person to weep.
And you aren’t the first person to be helped.

Read the story and remember, [the] story is yours!
Max Lucado, He Still Moves Stones

Trust God for your day. . .Today.
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
