Setbacks? Or Grace?

Ever had a setback?

Life’s humming along and then that whoa moment occurs when everything collides, and the results look like a train wreck, or the very least like a cake dropped on the floor! In short, a mess!

“…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

1 Thessalonians 5:18

“…in ALL circumstances” – yeah, this can be a big gulp,…and during hard times a serious test of faith,…but it is important for us believers to believe in the faithfulness of God.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassion’s never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Within the sphere of our humanity it is impossible for us to see the big picture,…which is a grace and mercy in its own right,…and during some of the hardest times the Lord’s grace and protection covering us are not evident until after the fact,…i.e. narrow escapes, or unexpected blessing from woeful circumstances.

Trusting in setbacks as grace isn’t easy,…but the peace it affords,…knowing ALL things work for the good,…transcends all understanding! And that makes it possible to give thanks in all circumstances!

Until I post again, may God bless and keep you!
