Romans 5:3-5


We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials,

for we know that they help us develop endurance.

And endurance develops strength of character,

and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

And this hope will not lead to disappointment.

For we know how dearly God loves us,

because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.


Where I Hide Episode 5: When the Only Way is Through


If I’m being honest, lately,

I have not had words to pray.

It’s not that I can’t hear You, God, I just can’t quite put all the pieces together.

What message are you trying convey?

Sometimes my prayers

are simply, "Lord, what is going on?"

Without a negative implication,

I’m really just curious! How long do I have to be strong?

I know You are calling me deeper into my faith.

All You have brought me through has not been work in vain.

But there are days it feels like it’s not enough

to know there is purpose in my pain.

Death is not always a symbol

of the end of a connection.

But in many ways,

the letting go of who we once were and what we knew;

soon to come, a resurrection.


For the period of struggling will be replaced with the rebirth of who You call us to be.

Jesus died on the cross. For even though we are sinners,

we are set free;

even though I’m far from perfect, God, I know You will still use me.


Amen
