T.I.P. 3 ~ "Whoever Shall Trust in the Lord ... " Prov 16:20
“Whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he” ~ Prov. 16:20
I was inspired by this verse, and ultimately my card creation, last week by my daughter. My 16 y/o daughter was in the final stages of a struggle with a really good friend of hers she met at her high school. They didn't grow up together like most of her other friends or go to the same elementary or middle schools, but they became fast friends. For the past few months, the "real" friend has surfaced and it has rocked my daughter to the core of her being. I kept telling her "be patient, be kind, be understanding", not realizing the sheer magnitude of hurt and ugliness being spewn her way. Many tears, texts, talks and hugs later, I could tell, she had had enough. I told her to give it one last try ~ one last prayer. You never, ever know what's in someone's heart and He can fill any void, any hurt, any dismay! She thought I had finally lost my mind, but trusted me anyway. Things have a way of working out just as they should!
Rmember that He always knows our hearts and often uses that chance to witness to others and fellowship with those hurting beyond all measures. We are so wonderfully made in the image of our Savior and He is the only affirmation we will ever need! Friendships and fellowships are the added bonus in the journey of that road of happiness. Trust in the Lord today. Even through the unknown, He will lead you through it! And today I wish you .......... happiness always!
