I am so amazed how God has shielded me from pain. The strength I have now is way too "strong" for me. And I just know, it came only from Him. Amazing strength from an amazing God. Amazing grace from a loving God.
"I have stilled and quieted my soul; like a weaned child with its mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. O Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore." (Psalm 131:2-3)
God is a just God. He gives me relief when I am troubled (2 Thessalonians 1:6-7)
And yes, I have peace during the storm. I am joyful in the midst of pain. Because I know my God is bigger than the mountains and the storm. He's got it covered. He has made my inheritance and my destiny secured.
