THE CURE FOR DISAPPOINTMENT-MY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

"I am the Lord, the God of every person on the earth.  Nothing is impossible for me."Jeremiah 32:27

We need to hear that God is still in control.  We need to hear that it's not over until He says so.  We need to hear that life's mishaps and tragedies are not a reason to bail out.  They are simply a reason to sit tight.

Corrie ten Boom used to say, "When the train goes through a tunnel and the world gets dark, do you jump out?  Of course not.  You sit still and trust the engineer to get you through."...

The way to deal with discouragement?  The cure for disappointment?  Go back and read the story of God.  Read it again and again.  Be reminded that you aren't the first person to weep.  And you aren't the first person to be helped.

Read the story and remember, (the) story is yours!   (He Still Moves Stones)

This was my devotional the day my friend Donna called to tell me that her husband Wayne's cancer had returned.  Just thought I would share that-God is in every detail-even down to knowing what we need to read to touch our hearts in our daily devotionals.

So thankful that I serve a risen Savior that loves me so much that He cares for every detail in my life-ever so thankful!

On His Pathway-
Jill

Yes and amen...thanks for these encouraging words...and yes, there are days that I do want to jump off the train! Where I would go I don't have a clue!

"C" is for many things said...

My husband and I watched "Facing the Giants" last night, it seems like with that and this post He is trying to tell me something!

Thank you for your devotional It hits home. I know that God is in control but sometimes it is hard to remember.
