When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Faith in Advance


Sometimes, I get so stuck in the moment, that I forget God has it all in the hollow of His Hand.  He knows the end, when I am only focused on the middle.  I am working on recognizing His hand in my life, no matter how the middle currently feels in the pit of my stomach.  
When I take a moment to look around me, I realize that I have much to be grateful for.  I do have many blessings.  I just have to look a little past the moment to find them.  I can say in all honesty, that everything I have been through up to now in my life, I would not change.  
Though there are bad things, there are also good ones.  My life has taught me strength and courage.  I know that I am not alone.  I have felt God's gifts in my life and know that He is ever mindful of me.  
I suppose, that one of the hardest things for me to learn is to simply trust Him.  It is easy to see his Hand when I look backwards.  It is much harder to see it in the moment.  So for today, I am trying to look past the hard things and have more trust in His grace.  I know He lives, I know He loves me, I know He hears and answers prayers and I know that He will help me to make sense of all this in reverse.
