Rest Assured

Revelation 21:5 says, "Behold, He makes all things new."

Rest assured, no matter where you are at in life, whatever trial you are in the middle of, just as the sun rises in the morning, He makes all things new.  No matter your age, economic standing, education, or status of single or married; there will be difficult times. People will come against you, they will fail you, your heart will be broken, people you love will die.  

Give your circumstances to the Lord.  There will be times you will do it once then times when you will do it with every breathe taken.  God is faithful.  He is our Protector, Provider, Warrior, Father, Husband and Friend.  He is Sovereign in the good times and more so during the difficult and trying times.  He goes before you and He is also your Rear Guard.  

I have a friend who has been waiting her whole life to kiss her husband.  She had given up on marriage after over 30 plus years of waiting.  Right after giving up on that dream and buying a cool sports car, she met the man God had just for her.  She laughs about how he was grown just for her, a perfect fit.  This summer she will begin her life with him and it is encouraging to see her faithfulness rewarded, perfectly.  

Jesus is Lord, I am not.  


  1. Rest assured. Easy to say hard to do, but that's faith, isn't it? What a great reward for your friend, and I love how you both see God in it!

  2. "rest assured". so powerful! and so hard for me to do...

  3. Wish I had this figured out to reply to comment...Kim, Alece, exactly and sometimes I felt and still feel it has to be done with every breath. That is when we have to hold on the hardest, speak the truth that we believe God is Who He says He is and will do what He says He will do and wait. He is faithful and His Word is true.
