 I have been trying to write for two weeks but seems everything was jumbled up in my mind.  We are in a trying place in our life, but I am not complaining,   My God is good , even in the bad times.  He sends so many blessings our way that they far out weigh the bad times.

I'm glad He is God and knows exactly what He is doing.  I have no idea what the Lord is trying to do, but I do know it is for our good and His glory.  I also know when we get through and He reveals to us His plan ~ that we will be made to rejoice that we left it in His 

As I have gone through life I have found that with each new trial there is always a blessing.   I am reminded of what Jesus went through on the cross for me and I bow my head in shame to think that I should complain about anything He sends my way.  He is such a wonderful Savior! He not only saves, but He leads and directs our life.  Sometimes  the path may be rocky and the skies gray, but He is always there to brighten the way.

I have always like the Poem "FOOTPRINTS."  I have found lately, as I  glance  back that, there is only one set of Footprints.  Don't we serve a Wonderful Savior?

Good morning Aliene,

You are not alone. Many of us have had the same jumbled up mind. Will be praying for you and yes you are right...we do serve an Wonderful Savior!!! Take care

Amen! Our God is always there to brighten the way.
We're going through some trying times as well...with as many kids as we have there always seems to be someone going through something.
Hoping the skies clear up for both of us soon and we can clearly see the 'Son' shining and lighting the way.
Keep looking up!

Hi Aliene, I believe what you wrote too...that He has a plan...and even if it doesn't make sense to us...He's promised...and His promise is the the best ever...because He never goes back on His promise. Have a great weekend okay...stay strong.

Yes my sweet Aliene our God is awesome and his plans are not always what we want but we know they are always perfect for us.
Praying with you my dear friend, I have missed you, here there and everywhere, hope to see you more, love you and if I can help in any way give me a holler, hugs Barbara

You are very right...It is all for our good and His glory. Words I need to hear daily, but especially when life is bitter.

I can certainly relate to this post. I can't wait to see what God is going to do with our trials. Hallelujah, our God is always faithful!!! Blessings

Aliene, I also like the Footprints poem and it has carried me through many tough times. May God bless you as he carries you through your trials.
