  4. Good morning Abigail. This was a blessing to me. This devotional is where I am today. One trial after another after another continue to bombard me. Thank you for the reminder that no matter what we are that we are loved by God and he is with us in our darkest times. I continue to praise God is advance. God bless you.

  5. Abagail,

    Life gets hard down here. It can seem as if God isn’t there or working on our behalf. But nothing could be further from the truth. He is constantly with each of us working on our behalf. We may not see it, but if we have faith as small as a mustard seed then it will come to pass. The answer may not be what we expect or want, but He will answer our prayers in His perfect timing. He loves us way to much to leave us to ourselves. Today I thank God for answering ALL my prayers in His perfect will.

    Blessings 🙂

  6. It’s simple and super hard, both. No doubt I’ll be learning this lesson the rest of my life. I’m finding though, over the years, that my white-knuckled grip on needing to know NOW has calmed into a more relaxed posture of, “God, somehow I know You’ll take care of this too. I don’t have to know how. It’s enough to know You will.” Grateful for this reminder, Abigail!

  7. Thank you for this post. I had some of these same feelings over the past year and I am 63. I thought I got the voodoo out of my faith long ago but suddenly I was reading scripture that I had read so many times before and seeing new verses that had me questioning my faith.

    After a lot of fist-shaking toward heaven and some residual anger – I am finally starting to see that God created me, He knows me better than anyone, He knows why I am so angry, and is standing by waiting for me to work things through and come on home in my heart and mind as the returning Prodigal.

    Appreciate you!
