apparently, i didn't get lunch on the table in time.
I have found David son of Jesse,
a man after my own heart;
he will do everything I want him to do.
in my CBS class last week,
we discussed that the word joy
(which i learned means gladness in Greek)
"is constantly linked with hardship and suffering"
in the new testament.
isn't that incredible?
yes, it is incredible.
He draws us closer.
that is what He is doing.
He is at work with His people.
He knows what He is doing.
He has a plan.
i am assured that we are saved by grace
and not by anything that we can do
other than believe in Him
who was sent to die for us.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,
whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
Let perseverance finish its work
so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything.
i am also assured that
that we go through in this life
is there to strengthen our relationship with Christ.
from every good and wonderful gift
Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.
to each and every heartbreaking moment.
And surely I am with you always,
to the very end of the age.
and yes, you better believe that i am going to continue to count them.
