Nothing Shall Offend Them: A Message for Unhappy, Irritated, and Bent-Out-of-Shape Christians - Psalm 119:165

There are times for all of us when the storm clouds of sorrow and suffering threaten to overwhelm us. In those moments, we are tempted to despair because of what we see all around us. But then the Lord says, “My child, fear not. Above the clouds of sadness, the sunlight of my love is always shining. Today you do not see it nor do you feel it and you fear the sunlight is gone forever. But wait a little while and the clouds will be gone and the sun will shine again. And know this. Even when you do not see it, the sun is shining above the clouds even when the storms are breaking over your head.”

“Before I Was Afflicted I Went Astray”: Why Your Troubles are a Gift from God"

Sometimes we will face things for which there is no earthly explanation. In those moments we need to erect a sign that reads, “Quiet: God at Work.” Meanwhile, hold on, child of God. Keep believing. Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Let God do his work in you. The greatest tragedy is to miss what God wants to teach us through our troubles. May God bring us to the place where we can say what the psalmist said, “It was good for me to be afflicted that I might learn your decrees.”
