Beyond the Clouds

I stare at the grey-rain sky.

The clouds have rolled in this week.

I feel it in my heart too--

little puffs of fear, worry, distraction.

But then I remember...

The sun is still there, just like always.

It's as real as ever.

It hasn't gone anywhere.

It's the same way with my heart.

Behind those emotions...

I am loved.

I have a purpose.

God is all and all is well.

That's as true as it has always been.

Always will be. 

Even more certain than the sun.

Holley Gerth

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1

The Mind of God Toward You

There is never a time
when you're not in His thoughts,
never a time without grace,
never a time when He turns away
from any need you face.

There is never a time
when you're not in His heart,
never a time without love,
never a time when you're not blessed
with good things from above!

How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me,
O God! how great is the sum of them! If I should count them,
they are more in number than the sand: when I wake, I am still with Thee.
Psalm 139:17-18

Excerpt from the devotional gift book "Always Loved"
by Roy Lessin

Who is against you?

God is not against you.

Jesus is not against you.

The Holy Spirit is not against you.

The Angels are not against you.

The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit, and The Angels are for you,
and they are greater than any foe that is against you.
It is God who has the final authority and the final say over everything that concerns you.

 If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
Romans 8:31
