Just a note of encouragement to each of you to take to heart the knowledge that God's love for you is never ending and His purpose for you is bigger than any problems we could ever struggle with. God promises to fill our needs as we share compassion and His love to others. Even while you walk through the difficult burdens and trials in your life continue to look for opportunities to encourage and uplift others and we know you will be enriched.
But be wise and prepare yourself "Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace." Protect yourself "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," and strengthen yourself "praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication." Stay on God's focus for you "To that end keep alert with all perseverance," Ephesians 6:14-18
With a focus on God not promising to always gift us with what we "want" but does promise to provide what He knows we "need," remember with God ALL things truly are possible. May you see fruit of His work on you, with you, though you, and around you.
We continue to cover you in prayer. Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️
Sending you love and hugs
