“Father, make of me a crisis man. Bring those I contact to decision. Let me not be a milepost on a single road;
make me a fork
, that men must turn one way or another on facing Christ in me.” - Jim Elliot

He WILL Bring You Through It

All praise to the God and Father
of our Master, Jesus the Messiah!
Father of all mercy!
God of all healing counsel!

He comes alongside us
when we go through hard times,
and before you know it,
he brings us alongside someone else
who is going through hard times
so that we can be there for that person
just as God was there for us.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 The Message

Are you struggling right now? Are you going through a difficult or hard time? Is it something that no one else seems to understand? No one else can relate to your current suffering? Are you wondering why God has allowed you to be in this "hard time"? And even more so... why is He letting you hang out there for so long?

Here's the good news... no make that the great news... okay... the BEST news...
God is going to come alongside you and bring you comfort. And God is going to be there for you. He promises. He is faithful.

And God will recycle what you have been through. Can you believe it? Remember when you thought no one could relate to what you were going through? Now that you have been through that difficult time... YOU CAN RELATE! You can be that person who truly can understand what someone else is going through. God is going to use you.

So, share it! Write a post about it. And don't be too surprised when God uses you to minister to someone else. To bring them hope and the same comfort that God gave to you.

Because He will bring you through it. He has promised!

When you're in over your head,
I'll be there with you.

When you're in rough waters,
you will not go down.

When you're between
a rock and a hard place,

it won't be a dead end—

Because I am God,
your personal God,

The Holy of Israel,
your Savior.

Isaiah 43:2 The Message

Did you write this just for me?? I'm working hard at acceptance and trying to keep the closet full of good and acceptable thoughts. Praising the Lord, knowing His plans over ride mine!

Thanks for this word! Your wisdom, for such a young woman, sorta blows me away!!
