Even Though…

I can not begin to comprehend what Job went through. To lose everything that he knew and loved must have been devastating, but to then find out that God allowed for it to happen is something else

Yet, what I admire about the book of Job is his trust in God, that no matter what happened to him, God was still in control, and He was still ultimately good

Job understood that God could give life and take it away, but in essence, it was more than that; Job understood that this life’s suffering, torment, and the pain was temporary, and once it was all said and done, Job would be in heaven with God, for eternity

Our hope should remain in Christ no matter what life throws at us because He is our anchor – firm and secure – to hold us until we come out the other end. Our Christian walk has always been about faith in Christ, and this should not falter just because of hardships

I have often seen others walk away from God because they deemed that God should rescue them. Yet, we know that Christ died to set us free so that our Spirits would be saved for all of eternity. He did not save from the pain and heartache within this lifetime

This is why I admire Job. It’s oh so easy to say that we will trust in God when life is “good”, but I pray that my faith and trust will never falter, no matter what I may face in this lifetime

Friends, let’s remember that this life is not our final destination, and although we may not understand the “why’s” of this lifetime, let’s remain steadfast in our hope and trust in the Lord, but more importantly that our love for Him will never fail because love really does conquer everything

“God might kill me, but I have no other hope. I am going to argue my case with him.”

Job 13:15

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
