Pain, sorrow, tears, sickness, disappointment, trials:
times like these can be the hardest for us to bear.
It was our sins that nailed Jesus to the cross, and it is our sins that give us sorrow, and our sins can cause sorrow in others.
Yet, even through our sin God’s mercy shines. The sacrifice offered on Calvary, is there for us.
It’s there to show us hope.
Pain. Sorrow. Separation. Strife. Tears. Agony.
Yet, through the darkest time, light still shone.
Forgiveness. Surrender. Obedience. Joy.
Calvary shines through the ages.
When the outlook was bleakest was when God’s mercy was revealed.
Do blessings only come when times are good.
Can we only receive His peace when we’re on the mountaintop.
What if blessings come from raindrops?
What if healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know God’s near?
When things look the bleakest
When blessings are hard to find
When God’s refining fire is molding us
Look for the blessings….
