Temporary Trouble

August 15, 2018

And before Isaiah had gone out of the middle court, the word of the Lord came to him: “Turn back, and say to Hezekiah the leader of my people, thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Behold, I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord, and I will add fifteen years to your life.” 2 Kings 20:4-5

Prayer is faith enough.

Faith God is real.

Faith He hears.

Tiny, questioning, mustard seed faith.

It’s enough.

Draw near.

He listens.

He never hides.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. Click To Tweet

He saves those crushed in Spirit.

Comforts those in mourning and trouble.

Wounds bound, hearts healed.

His love delights my soul.

Crown of beauty.

Garment of praise.

The Father invites me close.

“Come weary one.”

“Give Me your burdens.”

“I give rest for your soul.”

Deep waters rise.

Life’s furnace is hot, scalds and blisters raw.

My God never lets me burn or drown.

I am afflicted but not crushed.

I don’t understand the how’s or whys.

Soul anchor holds.

Momentary life troubles waste away.

What I see fades fast.

His promise preserves my life.

Faith of a mustard seed.

Weak, imperfect, mountain moving faith.

“What about you?”

“Who do you say I am?”

Amazing grace.

His life for mine.

Salvation through the Lord my God.

A rock that never moves.

Refuge and strength.

Mighty to save.

He wipes every tear.

Crying and pain gone.

Death and mourning no more.

Throne established.

Table prepared.

God glorified.

Inheritance received.

“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)
