God Promised…. I trust Him
Sometimes there are no words that can help heal the ache or bring comfort.
Sometimes the pain and confusion of the situation leave us not knowing how to feel.
Sometimes the bewilderment consumes us, as we think a million times or more… “I just don’t know….”
Sometimes there is nothing you can do but make it hour by hour… working your way up to day by day.
Sometimes “time” is the only thing that will help.
Sometimes…. Nothing on earth brings comfort.
Keep trusting the Lord, keep focused on the fact He is the same yesterday, today and forever! HE LOVES YOU #Tworship
