When Life's Just Plain Hard



This week has been a doozy, friends. It's been one of those weeks where tears have been a daily occurrence and heartache has been a theme. Yet my Jesus has been just the sweetest. And why would I expect Him to be otherwise?

As I've read through the book of Isaiah, the Lord has shown me just how fickle the hearts of His people can be. We say one thing and do another. We make promises and break them. We make commitments we can't keep. We are weak indeed.

But God's heart? His ways?

Perfect.

Good.

Kind.

Faithful.

Sure.

True.

Steadfast.

Loyal.

Loving.

Sweet.

Everything that is good or sweet or lovely that we can think of has come through His hand. And every difficult circumstance or heartbreaking situation? He's in the midst of those, too. I don't know what your week was like friends. But I pray that no matter your situation, you know that God is right there with you, in the midst of it all. He's the rescuer and redeemer, and He keeps His word. He's not like us. He doesn't go back on what He says. That's what has comforted me this week, friends. I pray you've found comfort in His love and in His word, too.
