Hardships & Destiny



We’re not keeping this quiet, not on your life. Just like the psalmist who wrote, “I believed it, so I said it,” we say what we believe. And what we believe is that the One who raised up the Master Jesus will just as certainly raise us up with you, alive. Every detail works to your advantage and to God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise!

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. There’s far more here than meets the eye.

  1. Oh you have blended 2 of my favorite things this morning: CS Lewis and The Message! Don’t you love the way the Message reads just like someone is talking to you! Makes the Bible come alive to me! Much love to you this morning!

  2. What a profound quote! And how vital it is to remember that hardships often play a vital role in our lives to prepare us for what lies ahead. Thank you for linking up with me – I hope you’ll be back today to link up again!
