Yes, I'm posting this one day late. Things got busy yesterday between class, tests, and homework, which left a very tired Lauren at the end of the day. Blogging consistently for 31 days is an important part of this challenge, but I don't want to go overboard. October is a busy month. This week is midterm. That means, my life is a little in the "crazy" category at the moment. But, I'm going to stick with this and keep on keeping on. Be on the lookout for today's post a little later.
In the midst of the troubles of this life, it's so critical that we don't give up on this faith thing. I think it's easy to take a step back and to ask "why?" and never return to the place we were. When the ground we stand on is shaken, we fall down and we don't get back up. We walk away from the situation and try to avoid it. We don't want to deal with the struggles, so we just avoid them. We don't stand firm in our belief...we falter. We misstep.We fall.
But even in the midst of all of this that the world throws at us, we can know that one thing is for sure. One thing is trustworthy. One thing in our life won't shake, won't falter, won't stop. God's unfailing love for us will not be shaken. In the midst of all of this, his love remains. He has compassion for us in these hard times, and he wants to comfort us and cover us in his love.
