We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair...(2 Corinthians 4:8)
Pressed and Perplexed. More than usual this week.
..the clothespin bag (just the one I'd wanted and all that I thought I was getting), and ABOVE AND BEYOND what I'd "won" in Raeann's giveaway--there was a jar of detergent and clothespins! The timing of this is NOT coincidental. God knew I needed a faith-booster. The timing and generosity of a friend are such tangible evidences of God's love, compassion, and great faithfulness.
I continue to trust in Him for the pressures and perplexities that we are experiencing. I KNOW whom I have believed.
This weekend my husband will be preaching on Lamentations 3:22-24. These verses say:
22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him."
The Lord IS my portion! I WILL wait for Him!
