God’s Love Endures Forever

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
1 Chronicles 16:34 (NIV)

♦   ♦   ♦

Many of us have a lot going on right now in our lives. You may be unemployed in spite of sending out hundreds of job applications. You may be living paycheck to paycheck because it’s hard to make ends meet due to inflation. You may be tired of going over the same thing with your children because it’s hard to keep talking and talking and talking. You may be tired of dealing with the same back-stabbing co-workers (or fellow church goers – because you will find some  of these people in church too) day in and day out. You may simply be tired of being tired.

BUT there is much to be thankful for! There’s life, health, friendships, family, working bodies, eyes that see, arms that can hug and hold … you get the picture.  I have learnt that one of the most powerful things a person can do is to give thanks to God while in the middle of overwhelming stressful situations. The peace in the midst of the storm cannot be explained nor can I really describe the calm that embraces you as a result.  All I can recommend is that you try it for yourself and let me know how you feel afterwards.

  1. There is always something to be appreciative of. I remain unemployed now going on 8 months. We have cut back to the bare minimum. This is not the first time we have hit this wall. It is just another temporary road block. God has it and in His time this soon will pass. I have so much to be stressed right now. My faith sustains me through the storms of life. It reminds me of an old adage; We live life going forward but only understand it going backwards. The best is yet to come! :)…Thank you for sharing this message.


    1. Dear Lisa, I was so so sorry to hear about your being unemployed at this time! But I do love your positive attitude. Yes, God’s got this and even though you may be under more stress than normal the best is yet to come. Thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts with us. May God continue to shower you with blessings and love; and remember: this too shall pass! Hugs!
