I was listening to this song in the car the other day and a few lines resonated with me.
Your voice to hear
And we cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt Your goodness, we doubt Your love
As if every promise from Your Word is not enough
And it just struck me how I live my life this way. How I can still struggle with my faith, my circumstances, my joy. I know God loves me. I know he wants the best for me. But sometimes I still pout when I don't get 'my' way. I am glad that God reminds us through the Bible of his promises for us.
Here are some promises to cling through as we do this thing called life.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 (CEV)
has its own time

for birth and death,
planting and reaping,

1 John 4:16 (NIV)
16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
