Loss & the Inconceivable Greatness of God

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I can’t begin to tell you how many mornings I’ve woken up in the last year to prayer and tears. Tears that were brought about by a foreshadowing loss, while trying to remain in Christ and His promises of strength and courage. The promise that God is greater.
Loss did occur and life was nothing as I had thought it would be, yet hope was not lost, somehow it has remained. I know it remains because of Christ, because only He can give real hope, peace and returning joy. Jesus never left me through any of the many trails, heartache and deep loss, a journey that I would never wish on anyone.

I have been to the depths of the darkest of times but can assure you; He has been the same yesterday, today and tomorrow! (Hebrews 13:8)
King David said, “You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” Psalm 56:8
I am blown away by a God that would care enough to not just wipe away my tears but collect them!
Today, my prayer time consisted of tears again but they were tears of praise for the renewed joy God has given me and His inconceivable greatness. So, just like David says a few verses later, “For you have rescued me from the depths; you have kept my feet from slipping. So, now I can walk in your presence, O God. In your life giving light.” Psalm 56:13

He has again astounded me with His love and care of/for me, leading me in a light I had once only read about and now have personally experienced.
