So this past week, my friend’s house burnt down and they lost everything. It was devastating!
What really stuck out to me in this time is how my friend is handling it. She is handling it with so much grace, and she has a peace about her that can only come from God. It has been amazing to watch!
My picture for this week is one of her shirts they found in the rubble.
Life is kind of like that sometimes. Life will burn you… it is inevitable. But it’s what you do with it that matters.
It actually says in the Bible that being a Christ follower doesn’t make your life easier, but manageable. It doesn’t say that fire will never come, but that when it does, we have a God who can bring us through it!
My life has had its fair share of fires, but I have come out the other side stronger than ever before. I promise, you will be okay! Even if you lose everything, you still have God and He is all you need! He will walk through the fire with you! All you have to do is ask Him!
Remember, God loves you and so do I!
