“But as for me, God’s presence is my good. I have made the Lord God my refuge, so I can tell about all you do.” (Psalm 73:28 CSB)
It’s a time of transition. I sit on the floor among piles of open boxes trying to envisage how to master the unknown way of leaving my life as I knew it and crossing into a new life in another country alone.
Do you have these days when you wonder how to have the courage to go forward? I woke up on such a day with one wish – I wanted to go back to sleep, to avoid the painful reality of my new unwanted life as a widow.
I don’t know what harsh reality you are facing today. Maybe it’s the loss of a job, the illness of a loved one, the disillusionment from shattered dreams, or struggling with depression.
Have you had a situation in which you chose to be satisfied with the less? When did you choose to stop and settle just one step before the breakthrough, or the solution or the right door to open?
What is the will of God and what does it mean to be living for the will of God? How can we be sure that we are following the will of God and not our human desires?
Life together with God is the key to true happiness and satisfaction. I remember a moment sitting in the car beside my husband. We were driving to an unknown place, we had worries and questions, and outside was raining cats and dogs.
Friend, do you wonder if it is possible to have joy in a season of suffering? What kind of joy this could be and how can we cultivate such unconditional joy?
We all struggle with accepting our lot in life. Sometimes we feel that our share of pain, disappointments, and setbacks is just too much to endure.
We all want to know the secret of how to remain hopeful under great pressure. Life is tossing us, pressing us on every side, and sometimes the pressure gets so intense that we despair for our lives or the life of a loved one.
