Reflections From The Rough– As Hope Grows

     We all enjoy good memories. It’s comforting to recall softer, simpler seasons. However, during these trying times, perhaps we should become a bit reflective. Recalling the previous times we’ve been challenged as individuals, families, communities, countries, and even worldwide with crisis. Yes, these days are distinct, but just think about those past crises and how we survived and even thrived! As we recall overcoming previous trials, we’ll feel hope grow and fear diminish.

     As believers, we should reflect on how He has brought us through many trials and trust He’ll do it again! Our focus needs to remain on Him and not on the waves! We’ll get through this – it won’t be painless and it won’t be quick – but we’ll get through this! Please reach out if you need help! Please follow guidelines to ‘flatten the curve’! Be safe! Be blessed!

     Romans 5:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

    Psalm 77:11-14 New International Version (NIV)

11 I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12 I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”

13 Your ways, God, are holy.
    What god is as great as our God?
14 You are the God who performs miracles;
    you display your power among the peoples.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
