It's Just the Beginning
This page is meant to encourage you and offer you scripture and prayers that will help you during your difficult times.
My prayer is that you will find a way to “Cling to Jesus” in the hard times, and in the midst of your difficulty, you will CHOOSE to continue to pray, learn to trust, and be reminded, that the Creator of the Universe LOVES you and is there for you in your time of need, if only you will CHOOSE to let Him.
Know also, that there is a purpose for your struggles, that God is working through you and building character in you to make you better, stronger, and best of all, to give you HOPE.
“We rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
May you find the HOPE of Jesus, in your time of need, and know that God is there in your sadness, your darkness, and with you every step of the way. He is with you in your daily walk, and He will bring you through to happier times.
When you don't understand your situation
Here I am in another situation that I just can’t understand. I cry out to you Lord and can’t understand why this is happening. Help me to step back and think about my situation in a new way. Help me Lord to trust in you and know that you are working things out even though I cannot see with my eyes right now. I don’t understand why this is happening Lord, but I know that you love me and will work the situation out for my good, in YOUR time. But as I go through this Lord, help me to be patient. Help me to trust in you and in your spirit to give me strength to go on. Wipe away my tears Lord and renew my body and mind with YOUR strength and YOUR love. Give me wisdom Lord to discern what is going on and guide my tongue that I might watch my words and not speak negatively in this situation. Help me to trust that things will work out in the end for your Glory and though it looks like the end for me right now, help me trust that this could be just the beginning of something wonderful that you have in store for me. I may not be able to see the bigger picture or the purpose right now, but YOU can. I Believe in you, I Love you, and I Trust you Lord.
In Jesus name,
"It's Just the Beginning"
When you feel overwhelmed
I believe in your Word. I believe in your love for me. Your word tells me that you will be there with me in difficult times. Your word tells me that I will not be overwhelmed by the waters or consumed by the fires that so often come my way. Your word tells me that YOU will be with me when they do. I believe this and know that if YOU are with me, then everything will be alright! I may come to raging rivers and roaring fires, but you have promised to be there by my side through them all. I find comfort in YOU and in your promises.
Thank you Lord for your promises, and thank you Lord for being with me in my times of need.
I love you Lord,
In Jesus name,
