It Is Well

Posted: June 17, 2016 in Uncategorized

Well, It’s been a long time since I made a post.  I never was very good at keeping a journal, but there has been a lot of things troubling me lately. You know, those times that the hedges are dropped, and everything around you falls apart.  Legal, Marriage, Career, and Housing problems. All is well now, since I heard from God yesterday. He told me he would set my feet on solid ground once again, and at the end of it all- I’d be in green pastures, as in Psalm 23 and that I would be able to do things that I’ve thought about, but never have been able to accomplish before.  He told me to let the legal problems play out, without me taking an offensive position- and he said all the misunderstandings in my marriage would be resolved soon.  He also said that all of this calamity, wasn’t wrath, nor judgment against me.  Often times God makes me feel like I’m important- even though I know there are many other Christians out there capable of greater things than I am.  …and whenever God speaks to me, he speaks as though I’m the most important person in all of creation.  I would, that I had such a gift.  So now I move on, with Faith and Belief that God’s got this, and I at least have some idea what his will and plans are for me.  There are so many bible verses that say God has good plans for us, but it is nice to hear those plans from him.  I just came upon some scripture today at random, out of 2 Corinthians chapter 1,  and thought I might share it, because it is so fitting for the times- at least for me.

3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.

6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.

7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.

8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:

9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:

10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;

 

20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

23 Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.

24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.
