When All Else Fails


This weeks blog is really for me.  When there is so much going on in our lives and around us, it can be difficult to remain grounded and remain true to what we believe in.  My belief is that God will never leave me nor forsake me no matter how much life’s circumstances may make me think differently.  It is precisely during these times and during these trials that I must learn to rely more on God and less on myself and my own capabilities.  Life has taught me that when you do not feel as close to God as you once did you must remember who moved.  In every case God has remained constant, it is us who forget that God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient.

I can speak for myself that lately it has been one uphill battle after another.  It has rained and it has poured.  However, I have still enjoyed the small blessings that we so often take for granted such as life, health and strength.  Breath in my body and activity of my limbs, food on the table and clothes on my back, a job to go to and a car to get me there.  Often it can be difficult to see the masterpiece God is painting in your life and it can be hard to remember the little things.


What I want to encourage each and every person to do this week is to think on the small things.  Think about the things that we often take for granted or neglect to be thankful for.  We sometimes need reminded that it is God, not life that has the ultimate and final work.  We have often been reminded that there is no sorrow here on earth that heaven cannot heal. Though your present pain may be real, God’s promise is what can heal and ultimately take away the pain.  Remain steadfast on your journey and remember when all else fails that God is in control!.
