Now, that's the perfect shape!
It's like one of those word games where you place a word like, "Hope and Faith" and see how many new words you can make. We might see just one circumstance, but within that one, there are blessings beyond our imagination. We just have to focus correctly and change our vision.
Those are words of hope my friends!! Christ is the Rock in which we were built. He is our strong hold. He is refining us. He is molding us for greatness. Greatness that will bring Him glory and honor. Think of Abraham. When God called him to leave his home, he had no idea where he was going. But he said, "Yes, Lord, I will follow." Sarah stood by his side. God blessed them with a child in their old age. Even though throughout their life they thought they were barren, God knew different. He saw up ahead. He saw the picture they could not see.
We can stand in hope today. There is a way out of that pit. Christ is the answer. Do I understand everything? No, I sure don't. I still have those days where I struggle with wonder, but God is right here with me in my stillness. Because God is unchanging I can be secure in Him. Everything around me might be changing, but He forever remains the same.
"For the mountains may move and the hills disappear, but even then my faithful love for you will remain. My covenant of blessing will never be broken." Isaiah 54:10
