You cannot help but feel despondent when you focus on all that is happening around us.
As these events have occurred in the natural there are times when we experience floods, storms and fires in our souls. We know that the Lord allows us to go through the fire to refine, equip and prepare us for His mighty kingdom.
A few weeks ago I thought that we would have to sell our B&B and home. For the first time I was not optimistic, I just could not see through the fog. We started this building project in 2005 and we are not into our own home upstairs. Up until last October we were all sleeping side by side in the fourth apartment that we were going to rent out also.
One thing I learnt about myself was my treasures truly are not here on earth but in heaven.
Once again I brought my tears to the alter and laid it all down.
Since then the Lord provided finance and our home upstairs has now been carpeted and the kitchen cork has been laid.
I stand amazed, feeling breathless.
The Lord promises that He will do more than we can ask, think or even hope. He has never let us down.
I don't have all the answers and even though I don't know what will happen tomorrow, next week or next year I trust my God.
The words 'Love always Hopes' keep penetrating my heart.
God is love and as long as I have God I have always got hope.
"We have this hope as an anchor
for the soul, firm and secure.
It enters the inner sanctuary
behind the curtain,"
~ Heb 6:19
