Even the seed must die before it lives – it literally gets ripped in half and destroyed before life bursts forth.
Trust Him in the now of your circumstances. The Christian walk is filled with death. Death to sin, to selfishness, to pride, to independence, to immaturity, to all the things we place before our reliance on God.
Death occurs before life springs abundantly.
Hebrews 12:11 (ESV)
For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Something good is coming. Don’t turn away from this present darkness – you’ll miss the coming blessings He has in store for you.
Dare you to ask Him to help you die to the things that are not from Him, that you might have life abundant.
It’s why Jesus came. Follow Him.
Just because we follow Christ doesn’t mean we do not have trouble in this life – but it does mean we have hope.
So glad you are here and on the journey with us! J
Love to you,
Romans 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for
those who are called according to his purpose.
