Lent Day 33

Emergence

Therefore, since it is by God’s mercy that we are engaged in this ministry, we do not lose heart…We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed… 2 Corinthians 4:1-18  As we approach Palm Sunday, we continue to emerge through this season finding the strength to remove the “rain boots.” If we get wet we can be confident that the heat emanating from Gods light within us, evaporates all manner of rain the world has to offer. As we can see storms ahead we are blessedly assured that they will pass over. Though our bodies are vulnerable, by His Spirit our hearts and minds are being unveiled, and in Christ we prepare to enter into Jerusalem with confidence. Nothing will stop what God has already put in to place for His glory, as we realize that we are more than survivors, we are more than conquerors, we are loved.

  1. I was reading through your posts because I knew I would find the encouragement that I needed for today, and I found it here in your reminder of Corinthians 4:1-18. I am here only by God’s mercy and he has shown me that mercy for a reason. So as I push through some tough times, I know that it is all for His purpose and His glory.
    Thank you.

    • All praise to God. Thank you for sharing as I pray that the words God gives me continues to encourage others and myself as well. We are not by ourselves in this journey. You my dear sister have encouraged me. In you I am reminded of the graciousness of our God and the reason I do what God has called me to do; indeed for His purpose and His glory. Peace and continued Blessings.
