Give It Time

When times are hard

After grieving 22 years for the son he thought was dead, Jacob learned Joseph was alive. “I never expected to see your face, and behold, God has let me see your children as well” (Genesis 48:11).

Embittered by the loss of her husband and sons, Naomi believed God was against her (Ruth 1:13, 20-21). But in time she began to see how God was bringing about a positive outcome, and she acknowledged His kindness (2:20).

Job despaired he would ever see good again (Job 7:7). Fast-forward to the end of the book: “The LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning” (42:12).desert-tagged

Wait for the Lord

God is faithful. It’s too soon to quit.

Hang in there, stay faithful.

Someday you’ll be so glad you did!
