  1. This is a great word. The Lord has worked stuff out over and over for me in the past, that’s why I know He will do the same for my current & seemingly harder situation. I have to keep reminding myself to let God stay in control and get out of His way. It’s going to be ok and HE will get the glory– that’s what keeps me pressing on. Thanks for reminding us about John 14:27.

  2. Thank you, Sherry! Yes, He is so good at getting us out of messes, isn’t He? I didn’t see how on earth He was going to get me out of mine, but He has! Woot! Go, Jesus!
    Thanks for reading!

  3. The more I linger on His faithfulness to me in the hard times, times when I thought I would never make it through, I hear his whisper, ” I got you, I’m that same God today, that I was then.” His grace is sufficient in even the deepest darkest valley, when we can’t possibly see the light. His light shines the brightest in my darkest hour.

  4. Such a heart-stirring message, Jamie. I feel the struggle and identify with it. It can be so hard to surrender everything, even our control over situations. To let go and let God. To die to ourselves and find all our life in Him alone. Thank you for this meaningful post. It is causing me to reflect on what I still cling to.

  5. Thank you for this encouraging message. My season has been very dark and lonely. I only have Jesus right now. His word is all I have.

    • He’ll be faithful to you, Jennifer. I’m sorry you’re going through a hard time right now. I just prayed for you to be comforted, and for Papa God to come to your rescue. 🙂

  6. Then I heard a much more difficult question: “Will you follow Me in this, even if you have to go alone?”

    You really stirred my memories of a time I knew that for safety & necessity that I had to leave & raise my five small children without my husband, It was only time I really heard God speak to me & I heard Him! They all have children & some of their children have children. I may have been physically alone but my Heavenly Father is always there every step of the way. “He will make my path straight.”

    • Hi Wini. I am sorry you went through that. I pray Papa will help you feel His presence more than ever before so you won’t feel alone if you still do sometimes. Hugs!

  7. Thank you for your encouragement. God took me alone (with my 5 beautiful children) out of a 17 year marriage. It was the hardest thing I ever knew and I am still healing and dying and surrendering despite the blessing of an amazing new husband. Surrendering my dream of one man, one marriage, 50th wedding anniversary… I still struggle to surrender that dream in how I grieve over it. Somehow despite all the miracles around me to the contrary, my stubborn faithless heart still can’t believe that breaking out family was the best plan God could come up with. I know I’m wrong, but the total surrender is a hard time coming. Thank you for your sharing. Jesus is the only way!

    • Hi Betsy. Thank you for sharing. I can’t imagine what you must have been through. I pray Jesus will restore you double for what you have lost… and I am glad you found a new start. Blessings to you and may the Holy Spirit comfort your heart always. 🙂

  8. This made me cry and smile at the same time…thank you for sharing this word in season…may we press on, press in and never give up 🙂

  9. This post is awesome. Not in a “WHOA, HOW AWESOME!” kind of way. But in a “yeah…I get it…SHE gets it, too.”

    One thing I’ve learned is that, in this life, we may not get all of the answers we want…but if we are obedient, God works all things out for our good. There is always a cost for obedience, even if it’s just that we die to our will and do His…but He is always faithful.

  10. Jamie,

    This has been a tough year for me and my family! We had 2 hospitalizations with my dad and many doctor’s visits. Through that I worked a job I didn’t like and my hubby almost lost his job (thankfully he didn’t) WOOT 🙂

    Through all that craziness and stress God was there. He worked and got us through those trials and dad is fine now. My hubby and I are both still employed and life has gotten a little better. God is soo good and He has always seen us through our trials!

    Blessings 🙂
