through His Word
Sitting on the mountain top, you don’t want to leave. Whether it’s been a week at a youth camp, a writers conference, a vacation with much-needed family time, or a special quiet time with God, we may be hesitant to get back into “real life.” Like in the picture above, we can’t see what’s in the valley. The clouds obstruct our view. We don’t know what struggles we’ll face or what joys we’ll encounter. But there is One who sees all and knows all.
So keep trusting God. Summertime gives us the chance to get away. For most of us. Many enjoy vacations, and others savor the weekends. But then we get home from vacation or the work week begins on Monday, and we don’t really want to get back into the swing of things. So hold onto what you know of God. Rest in His love and goodness, and be energized to follow Him because He is always with you. Stay refreshed in His Word, and let the truths and promises of Scripture renew your hope and strength each day. Trust God for the dreams and desires that mean the most to you, and should you encounter a challenge along the way, depend on God to face it victoriously.
“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us” (Romans 5:5 NKJV).
Our hopes and our hearts are always safe with God. Come down from the mountain, holding His hand. Let His love strengthen you, and keep trusting Him.
