Wow, all i can say is TGIF…thank God it’s Friday. This week has been long, drawn out, stressful and then again at the same time, it has been encouraging as well. God answered an urgent prayer in an amazing way.
The situation i referred to earlier in the week about saying a sad goodbye to a young member of our youth group was worked out for the good by none other than God in heaven above.
It was resolved in a way that none of us were able to foresee and the young man will be able to stay in the area and finish school, maintain his relationships and continue to grow as a young Christian. This is not to mention the potential dangerous situation that God rescued him from! God is good…and now the young man has an opportunity to see that he is valuable to God and to others that care for him; he hasn’t had much of that in his young life.
Other young teens who were struggling with their faith in God, have seen God in action regarding their prayers of concern for their friend. Once again, I am in awe of how much God loves us; and, how he has our best interests at heart when our very human minds just can’t see any way out of a difficult situation! That, my friends, is a testimony.
Enjoy your weekend. Pray your way through, whatever you are going through and ask God to reveal his hand in the circumstances you find yourself in. I know i am being put to the test myself in some areas.
So, it is with faith that we try to give up control of our circumstances and leave our concerns in God’s hands where it all belongs anyway. He doesn’t always answer the way we think he should but he never leaves us alone.
