hard times

“You promised to be there when times get rough
You promised to stay by my side, when the going gets tough.”

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. 

Isaiah 41:10 NIV

“you will cry for help, and He will say: Here Am I

The Worrier is a Child

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength.”  

—Corrie ten Boom

“If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion.

There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to Him than birds.

…People who don’t know God and the way He works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how He works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.”

—Matthew 6:25-33 (The Message)



We cannot even hold the universe like how the Creator Himself does, better stop holding onto our worries as if we can do much with them.

We are but a child, why not entrust everything to our Heavenly Father?

    and all His ways are just.

What Love Is This?

“What love is this, that You gave Your life for me
And made a way for me to know You
And I confess You’re always enough for me
You’re all I need…”

—Kari Jobe

“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.”

(an excerpt from John 3:16-17, The Message)


I am always in awe at Your wonderful love that I can’t even measure… such a wonderful love that You’ve chosen me to treasure.

Pains of the Past

“Dwell in the pains of the past, and you become a prisoner of depression.”

 “Do not cling to events of the past or dwell on what happened long ago. Watch for the new thing I am going to do. It is happening already you can see it now!”

 — Isaiah 43:18-19

Trust God’s goodness and mercy and start pleasing Him today.
Wash those bitter tears away. Drop the throbbing luggage of the past.
Remember that God gives us the strength to overcome the difficulties of the past, the present, and the future.

The Sun Always Shines

Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
 even there your hand will guide me, 
    your right hand will hold me fast.
 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.

Psalms 139:7-12

God is always there – even when life gets rough.

The Secret of Responsible Trust

“God has trusted each of us with our own set of unfair circumstances and unexplained experiences to deal with. Can we still trust in Him even if He never tells us why?”

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.” 

— Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT

“The secret to responsible trust is acceptance. Acceptance is taking from God’s hand absolutely anything He gives, looking into His face in trust and thanksgiving, knowing that the confinement of the hedge we’re in is good and for His glory.”

– Charles Swindoll

Forever Alone?

“Sometimes just being alone out in God’s marvelous creation is all that’s needed for the scales to be removed from your eyes and for you to silence the harassment and the noise of your day and begin to hear from God.”

“Thus the Lord God….He said, In quietness and trust is your strength.” – Isaiah 30:15

Sometimes His most meaningful touch on our lives comes when we are alone. 
So better include in your schedule time to have a forever-alone-moment with God.

Tough Times = Trust Times

“…God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” — Romans 8:28 (NLT)

There will be tough times, yet through them will we be able to trust and grow more in Him.

Heavy Rains…

“Struggles” may taunt you — “Trust” comforts you.

“Pressures” may deplete you — “Perseverance” fuels you.

“Failure” may crush you — “Hope” uplifts you.

“Expectations” will haunt you — “Love” embraces you.

“Giving up” is dying to have you — God is holding you! 

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. 
      Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. 
   I will strengthen you and help you. 
      I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
                                                                                  — Isaiah 41:10 (NLT)

All Yours…

“… though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith – of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire – may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”  1 Peter 1:6-7

As Christians, our lives are going to be full of trials and tribulations. It is God’s way of asking us to love and trust Him completely. Remember, if God is testing us, then there is something in us worth testing.

So I’m letting go and letting God. Trusting God in everything He sends my way. The good, the bad, all of it!
