But God.....

This last 2 weeks have been very tough for me.  Actually, the last month!  No..... the last 5 1/2 years.  Ok ok, there most certainly have been good times as well but the last 5 1/2 years have been tainted with overwhelming heartbreak!  Family splits and business stresses.  But through it all God has been there.  He has held us up!  He has prospered us where others promised to destroy us.


Sounds dramatic and it is!  And I don't have the freedom to elaborate.  What I do believe beyond a shadow of a doubt, I will have a testimony soon about God's vindication for us, about God's protection and blessings.  Actually, I testify now, He has protected us, financially, physically, emotionally and spiritually!

And I believe God is not finished with us in this situation!  But the last two weeks have been very stressful and the onslaught continues and there are times when I just feel I cannot bare the attack much longer...

BUT GOD....


But God - has surrounded me with friends who pray, some I know, some I've never met
But God - gives me key scriptures that give me hope, renew my strength
But God - shows me there are others who need prayer and helps me focus on others
But God - is gracious
But God - is faithful
But God - is always with me
But God - is merciful
But God - His word is true and He will NEVER EVER fail me (or you)

Thank you to all of you who have picked up on my hurt and have comforted me with prayer.  You have no idea how awesome that is to me and how precious.  Thank you for the cyber hugs.  They are as precious to me as real hugs.  I am grateful for everyone of you.


At the same time I want to encourage you all, God knows where you are at, He cares and He is right there with you.

Duet 31 v 6:  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you;  He will never leave you nor forsake you.

1 Thess 5 v 11:  Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

God bless
Tracy

  20. Hey Tracy,
    I hadn't visited your blog in awhile - like you said above, we also have had our share in life of "Family splits and business stresses. But through it all God has been there."
    Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you, and am praying for you today!
