“Never Abandoned”

I believe we need to continually remind ourselves that the Lord is with us– especially when we are going through difficult times. If we aren’t careful we can easily believe the lie that God has abandoned us, that is nothing but a lie.

...I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee….” ~~Hebrews 13:5b
He has not abandoned you– never has, never will. He didn’t abandon the disciples while they were in the storm. He didn’t abandon the three Hebrews in the fiery furnace. He didn’t abandon Daniel in the lion’s den. He didn’t abandon the children of Israel at the Red Sea. He didn’t abandon Joshua as he faced the battles in the land of Canaan. He didn’t abandon David when he stood before Goliath. He does not change, so why would He start abandoning His people now? He wouldn’t.
There are those who believe that because they go through difficulties, trying times, hardship and testing that it is a sure sign that the Lord has abandoned them. Going through these times is not proof that He has abandoned you. While we live on planet earth we will also go through difficulties and encounter problems. This is why we must remind ourselves daily that He is with us- regardless of what is going on in our lives. 
Are you feeling like He has left you? Are you feeling abandoned by God? Don’t live by your feelings, don’t trust them, they aren’t true- they change constantly. Live by His Word- it is faithful and it is the truth- and it says He will NEVER abandon you.

Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. Amen, my sister! God is ever with us and desires for us to seek Him! Too often we kind of play hide and seek with Him, like Adam and Eve in the garden. He didn’t want them to hide from Him, and He doesn’t want us to hide from Him either! He wants a closer relationship with us, desires for us to turn to Him in those times of need! You summed it up very well! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
