Has God Forgotten

Has God Forgotten...

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,  His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning,  great is His faithfulness."  Lamentations 3:22-23

Does it ever feel like God seems to have forgotten your trials and hardships? Things seem to go from bad to worse... One step forward then two steps back.

Maybe all you hear is silence when you pray. The often quoted scripture above is one that has brought me comfort over the years, especially when I have questions and I'm looking for answers.  
I find comfort in the fact that God's love for me is constant.  His mercies are new every day for each of us. We don't get what we really deserve (mercy) and we get get what we don't really deserve (grace).

This last year and a half has been trying for all of us. But God has not forgotten me and He has not forgotten you. After thirty surgeries in two years I'm reminded that God loves me and His mercies are endless to me.

Let's not be like so many who go through each day without God yet when things go wrong they blame God. God is faithful and will always be.

Having had repeated health trials has re enforced my faith in him even through frustrations. He strengthens me to keep going. Giving up is not an option with God in my life. Pastor Derek has never given up. We are Thankful for his strong spirit and undying faith in a Great God.

Reading Pastor Dereck’s words reminds me that God doesn’t work on our schedule he has his own.

Remembering prayers from many years ago I can see this at work and can’t help but to praise him daily(God that is)

And if Pastor Derek hadn’t helped me to internalize this I know I would forget to praise him daily.

He is faithful and does reward those who remain faithful to him
