DAILY DEVOTIONS:

''All Things Will Be Well''

St. Benedict

It was really for the sake of saving lives that God sent me here ahead of you.

- Genesis 45:5

The story of Joseph is one of the most familiar in Scripture. It is also one of the most incredulous and heartwarming. Incredulous because it is unfathomable that his brothers could sell him into slavery. Heartwarming in that, not only did Joseph find favor in Pharaoh's house, but during the time of famine in Israel, he forgave his brothers for their dastardly deed when they went down into Egypt for food.

It is also a story that illustrates how God works in our own lives. How, when we think we are left with nothing but lemons, the hand of God provides a huge pitcher of lemonade.

Too often we are left wondering why something happened, and it is only in hindsight that we better glimpse the reason. It is with time that we come to understand the wisdom of Julian of Norwich (13th century anchoress) when she said, "All things will be well, and all things will be well, and all manner of things will be well."

- Judy Schueneman

Dear Lord, help us to stay focused on you, to believe in you, to trust you, and to do your will so that Your Glory can be revealed to us. Amen.

Thank you Judy for your heartwarming devotion.

The story of Joseph is a wonderful example of the Glory and Goodness of the Lord when we believe and trust in him and do His will: "Forgive those who hurt us, love our enemies and be kind and have compassion towards others".

Yes, it is also a story of how God works in our own lives. "How, when we think we are left with nothing but lemons, the hand of God provides a huge pitcher of lemonade". God does this kind of thing all the time. He makes a way where we see no possible way. "For God all things are possible", "Never forget the power of the Lord". "How sweet He is!".

God Bless our Living Faith Family.

I try to remember this saying (I quote it this past Tue on LFDD) whenever I talk to my young adult children, "They don't care what I know about Scripture or God or anything until they know I care about them no matter what or when they make good bad or ugly decisions!"

So it is the same with other people I want to share God with! I try to find out what they are about and what they care about! So I connect first before I share anything... Sometimes I don't say anything waiting for the prompting of the Holy Spirit and for God to open the door!

I plan and God determines my steps! Proverbs 16:9 I get all my directions and guidance from His Word and the Holy Spirit!

Thank you Vicky for sharing this good news about your son. I will continue my prayers for peace and thanksgiving for all of you.
Continuing my prayers for Tim, Ken and their love ones and for all our LFF.
Lemons may be quite sour and tart to the taste, but with God’s sweetness of mercy and the love of His spiritual water, may we all enjoy his refreshing lemonade we are offered every day.
God bless you all.

Living Faith Family. I wanted to say thank you but more so encourage each of you. Your prayers for me and my family have been so appreciated. As these many, many months (years really) have passed, besides dealing with daily struggles, I have been so worried about my autistic son. Unable to find suitable work I face a daily worry of what will become of him as the years pass and how will he survive when my husband and I are unable or no longer here to help him. I’ve offerred it to God and remain steady in my trust that God’s timing will prevail. After a few years of applications and interviews he was offered a part time job as maintenance worker for a local park. My gratitude for your prayers! I know they have been heard. And I wanted you all to know they are not in vain. I’m sure you know that, but sometimes seeing or hearing of the Lord’s mercy warms our hearts and gives us the strength to continue. Maybe that will give you strength Tim and Ken and everyone else as well while you deal with issues. My son signs his papers at Human Resources tomorrow. I continue to rely on prayer for the Holy Spirit to give him the confidence and ability to handle and do the job well. May God’s mercy be on each one of us in both happy and not so happy times, may Christ’s presence be felt in our time of need and may the Holy Spirit guide us in our choices and actions, Amen.

We must trust in the Lord Jesus always, especially in trouble times. We never know why we face these difficult challenges in our life. I always try to take step back and let go and let God direct my efforts, knowing he already has a plan motion, I just do not understand.

I am currently going through one of these moments. I continue to pray for strength, guidance to follow his plan.

Living Faith Family please offer a prayer for me today, to help me stay focused on him while I am going through these very difficult times.

Praying for our Living Faith Family.

Amen.

Hang in there Tim. You are not alone. There are many of us fighting the same battle, trying to understand what it is God has planned for us, and what it is He wants us to do.

Romans 8:28 has helped me at times when I just don't understand why things are happening the way they are.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

My prayers go out to you and your family.

Tim, remember the Holy Spirit is in you. Put all you trust in God! I am praying right now for God to give you what you need!

This deal may not go through, but a better (best in His plan) one is on its way! Don't know when or how, but we have a faithful God! He knows all your needs and wants, Tim! You are a good and faithful, Tim! He care for you and will take care of you! I praise Him for you!

Time, may knowing that you are not alone bring you comfort. God has been pulling through for me, things have been looking better with the prayers offered by our Living Faith Family. I and our Living Faith Family pray that He will pull through for you as well.

"All Things Will Be Well".
