Does anyone else here take great comfort in realizing that God sees everything, beginning to end? I do. It really helps me when I think about how He’s holding me, directing me, helping me. I’m excited about what my twenties will be like. What God has in store for me, the different challenges and adventures I’ll go through. Changes can be hard, but pretty cool as well.
This year has been wonderful for me, but very stressful and hard at the same time. One of the verses that I keep reminding myself of is First Samuel 30:6 “And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.”
But David encouraged himself in the LORD his God. Just think about it! So often I’ve gone to other places for encouragement, but in reality, every other form of encouragement is frail and fallible and will eventually let me down. Not that I don’t still get encouraged other places, but I need to not put my peace into other peoples/things hands. God will never let me down though, so when life gets confusing and hard I can go to Him for encouragement. I am so thankful for all God has given me, especially His encouragement and peace!

Yes, I also take comfort in knowing God sees everything. It's wonderful how He has such personal relationships with us. Today the message was about how God thought about us and had plans for us even before we were born. It was a good reminder! Thanks for sharing!
You totally stole my verse! But I'll share… Freely I received, so freely I will share… Really though, I do relate to that verse quite well… It's always had a special place in my heart =)
Thanks for the encouragement! Love ya girl 😉
I love the thought that God knows our beginning and our end… So comforting!
Well thank you. And yes… What am I supposed to do? Comfort myself with verses about Lydia selling purple fabric? 😉
