Settle in the loving arms of our Savior no matter the winds that blow, no matter the storms that rise.
Through financial struggles settle in the arms of Jesus
Through health trials settle in the arms of Jesus
Through feelings of doubt and unrest settle in the arms of Jesus
Through the loss of loved ones settle in the arms of Jesus
Through broken relationships settle in the arms of Jesus
When we settle in the loving arms of Jesus our situations may or may not change but what will happen is a peace that surpasses all understanding.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7 (ESV)
Trust in the with all your heart,
In all your ways acknowledge him,
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
The straight paths He makes for us are settling-peaceful-full of grace and love.
Absolutely nothing we go through is wasted. God will bring beauty from the ashes and bring good where there was only heartache.
How do I know this to be true? Because He has proved himself true time and time again through out my life and I am sure He has done so in yours too. You just need to look past the heartache and pain and see Him in the times you felt alone. I know that is hard but it can be done. I know, I know. I was once was lost in anger and resentment and it took a lot of time in God’s word for me to let it go. I know it seems like a tall order but I also know God is able to give me the strength when it’s the desire of my heart to let things go so that I can settle in His peace and rest.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (ESV)
Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 (ESV)
