God, the Master artisan, sees the beauty buried deep within our lives. Often, through adversity, sorrow, and suffering, our undesirable traits are evident and we trust the Lord will sand off those rough edges. Our heavenly Father works carefully, as He envisions us as a precious jewel in His Kingdom.
Moses was one who hung tough, who refused to give in or give up, who decided that no amount of odds against him would cause him to surrender. He had staying power. He possessed the disciplines of durability.
As God's beloved children, we are called to faith, not fear. Faith says, "God is in charge of my life; I will trust Him, even when circumstances might suggest He's not there. I believe God loves me and knows what is best for me." Faith always crowds out fear.
Today, are you bearing life-altering burdens? Are you afraid one more struggle — one more small-hair of a problem — will break you? Do you feel buried beneath the load wondering if anyone cares or even notices? Take courage, dear one, Jesus knows and Jesus cares. He holds the power to ease your burdens. He holds the key to your strength during difficult days. You can rely on Him when troubles come.
