Restored, renewed, relying on Him!

Psalm 71 20

Trust in the Lord. Never doubt God! Never say that He has forsaken or forgotten you or that He is unsympathetic. He “will restore [your] life again.” No matter how many twists and turns the road may have, there is always one smooth, straight portion. Even the longest day has a sunset, and the winter snow may stay quite some time, but it will finally melt.

Be steadfast, “because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58). He will turn to you again and comfort you. Trust Him to direct your path. And when He does, your heart that has forgotten how to sing will break forth in thankful and jubilant song, just like the psalmist who sang, “I will sing of your righteousness” (Psalm 51:14). (Adapted from Streams in the Desert)

Do not resist or run from the difficulties of your life. These problems are not random mistakes, they are hand-tailored blessings designed for your benefit and growth. Embrace all circumstances that He allows into your life, trusting Him to bring good from them. View problems as opportunities to rely more fully on Him. Remember that He has a plan for your life! (Adapted from Jesus Calling)

You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy. -Psalm 30:11
