''...weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.''
We wake up every morning not knowing what a day might bring and I strongly believe that is the main reason why God instructs us to seek Him first above all else daily.
We seek God by studying his word, the Holy Bible!. By so doing we become rooted in our faith, and no matter what comes our way we are given a way out..an Escape!
''No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it''.
1 Corinthians 10:13
About 5 years ago,I woke up one morning with a picture perfect family and the life I always desired only to end the day with news that my beloved husband had gone to be with the Lord. How does one begin to process such devastating news?
But then when I thought all was lost and my life was over, God put a new song in my mouth. It did not just happen overnight, but it was a process. The secret to it all, was that, I availed myself. I totally yielded to the story God was writing about my life.
It was possible because i knew who He was and what He was capable of doing even though at that point in time, i had just rededicated my life to Christ and desired to have a personal relationship with Him. His grace is always sufficient.
It turned out to be a glory story because all is for His glory.
In my book "a young widow's testimony", I share it all.
The beautiful thing however is my glory story has not ended.God is still is writing my story and I am excited for the next chapter.
Sister in Christ, God is waiting to write your glory story, avail yourself.
There is joy after pain and he wants to write that too in your story. He wants to bestow on you - Beauty instead of Ashes.
