• H O P E in the storms of life. •

“And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:28‬ ‭

It’s no doubt, God is rewriting our story.
I see hope and beauty from what the enemy has stolen. It is true- what the devil meant for bad God meant for GOOD!
He continues to send people to speak truth and life into our family. I cannot thank Him enough.

This weekend some good friends took us on their boat and it was a much needed time of pouring into each other… sharing what God is doing in our lives. 💗💗💗
Plus, it is always great to spend a day outside isn’t it?
Despite the little hour storm that past through leading us to a camper full of two sweet Mama’s and their teenage boys, 😂 Summersville lake was so beautiful!

This picture was taken just before the storm. Then shortly after the storm we went for a swim… it was perfect. 🥰 God gave us shelter and people to love us in the middle of the storm.

Reminds you of this life doesn’t it?

At one point after the storm passed, my friend and I looked at each other and we were amazed that our kids weren’t phased by the change in plans. After the storm, we all sat together talking about music and how good the Lord is before going back out on the lake.

I only hope I can be fearless and courageous like my kids are as we walk through this life by faith each day.
Truth is, we will never get to the point of *not needing Gods guidance.

I can relate this day to being a Christian in more ways than one but today I feel so many are facing “storms.”
I’ve come to learn when we give our lives to Christ it doesn’t mean we “won’t face trials,” or everything will go “just as we planned.”
Often times God leads us to places we never would have imagined for ourselves because He knows us better and wants the best for us! Yeah, you’ll get the nay sayers, the religious and those that doubt His plan but keep seeking His face. Hold fast to His truth!

Trusting in Christ means we have Hope during each trial we face, knowing God is with us the whole way and these trials produce
“endurance, character, and character, hope.” (Romans‬ ‭5:4‬) = Hope of eternity!

I thank God for the many times we’ve been tested because He is making us stronger.
I pray you look for the beauty He is trying to show you right in the middle of the storm. Shew, it isn’t easy…. this life can be down right heartbreaking! 💔💔💔
But when we read all about the hope God has for us on the other side of this in His Word…. We find He has an amazing plan for ALL of us!! When we look to people or anything else other than Jesus, we fall into the darkness of this world but what we *truly need is to

take heart.

He has overcome and we know Who wins this battle! 💗💗💗
