I want to start this post with one of my favorite scriptures from the bible, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31: 8-9
Throughout my years of trying to find Solace in God, I often wondered why I kept picking up the bible one day, putting it away for weeks at a time the next, only to find out, I kept going back to the same area within the bible, the book of Deuteronomy, the book of God’s guidance, my inner search as to finding the truth! What my purpose of living had become. I found myself constantly picking up the bible skimming over pages that really didn’t appear to make sense to me.
As I began researching the bible, I started with a pen and paper, carefully noting every passage I did not understand, moving deeper into the word. By the time I had finished within the hour; what I hadn’t realized was that I had a page full of unanswered questions. The number two question, Why had god allowed so much hurt to enter into my past and present life. My unanswered questions were well within me, God had allowed the storms to enter into my life as to life’s situational circumstances, preparing me, getting me ready for the fight of my life as to dealing with my life’s most difficult moment. Had he forgotten about me? No, he just wanted to show me that I could do all things through Christ whom strengthens me with his guidance. Our God is sufficient for the pressures that life has to offer, both good and bad.
As you continue your journey in Christ and walk with the lord, take the time to find your own Solace within god. I am enjoying the gift I was given as to reaching out helping others that may be in need of spiritual food for the mind, body and soul, I’ll feed you, I’m a great cook. If God can take you to it he will surely pull you through it. Life that is!!!
Come along with me as I take you into my new found freedom of what God has to offer, knowing that god will be along for the journey, there is sure to be a victorious outcome.
