Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows . . . (Isaiah 53:4)
Joseph Scriven, whose two fiancees passed away under terrible circumstances, penned these words, which became a powerful hymn: “What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!/What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!”
You need to understand that the loss of a companion is not a sign of God’s abandonment. It could possibly be that God is preparing to open the heavens and position you to receive something so grand and wonderful about Himself that it will change your present and prepare you for the future.
God will finish the good work He’s begun in you
When life knocks you down, you can feel that God is a long way away.
But be encouraged – because He’s right there, working in you and for you, even when you don’t feel Him.
Finishing Work is a new series from Pas that takes you through the Psalms to show you that God always keeps His promises – especially His promise to complete the good work He’s begun in you. And we’d love to send you a copy as our thank you for your gift today.
So request Finishing Work when you give below to help others understand that truth and hold onto God’s promises too. Be encouraged!
