Two L's make a W

It's easy to say God is good and that He provides when you are in a time of "abundance".

What I have found these last two months is that it has not been as easy to say God is good when my heart hurts or when my body is in physical pain because of how emotionally taxed I am. 

I've come to terms that I will just never understand some things. I will never understand how it's possible to be able to say that God is good in every season, but after what I've been through, I know it it is possible. I guess that's faith.

"Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see." - Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)

I am confident that I am putting my hope in a God who is stronger than anything I face.
I am confident that I live with purpose, even when the enemy tries to attack it.

The devil will use anyone or anything to attack and distract you. Don't lose hope.

Not every season looks the same. One season may seem to have more abundance than others, but it's about how you perceive your season - not your material possessions and resources.
Money does not equate blessing. 

You are blessed because you have walked this far,
you are running your course, and you are surrounded by love.

And yes, loss brings grief. Loss brings pain.

But perspective says that when you combine the L's you get a W.

"A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil."
Ephesians 6:10-11 NLT
