  1. Great perspective! God is good all the time & worthy of praise in each moment. On our honeymoon we bundled up in our newly bought resort sweats to witness the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. After 30 minutes of shivering yawns in the solid dark we realized we didn’t know what time to expect the sunrise. Pre google no way to know if we were 5 minutes out or hours. We were happy to trust God’s timing was perfect but we didn’t need to witness it from the freezing cold dunes. The sun did come up that day & every day since. No reason to think it won’t do so everyday in the future. God’s in charge & I don’t have to supervise His work! Yeah God!!!

  2. This was a hard one today. I really don’t know if I’m in a hard season, or just prolonging my own suffering. You’ve given me something to think about.

    • Angela,

      Praying for you sweet sister. May God give you a discerning heart to know what steps or actions to take. Trust Him in this time of trial & praise Him in the storms. He deserves our praises for ALL He’s done for us.


      Blessings 🙂

  3. Angela may the Spirit give you discernment as to where you should act to lessen the pain & where He is calling you to simply praise Him in the storm & allow Him to be magnified in & through you. No matter the length of this season you are not alone & He will light your path. Sending hugs & prayers, sis. (((0)))

  4. Michelle,

    Loved your perspective on the sunrise. God said He would make beauty out of ashes. God will always give us good things. So in each season or trial I face I will praise Him for His lovingkindness towards me.

    Blessings 🙂
