Pilgrimage OLS — Week Two #1

Ever felt as though you’re under a lot of pressure and sometimes wonder how you will make it on your pilgrimage of the heart? Be encouraged dear friend. God will strengthen you and help you moment by moment no matter where you are or what you are experiencing in life. He promises:

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Oh what a promise for you. He promises that His grace is sufficient. I believe His grace gives you promises of hope that carry you beyond the here and now all the way to eternity and the things that last forever. Paul tells us in Romans 15:4 that the encouragement of the Scriptures will give you hope.

This week we had the opportunity to look at many promises that are custom-designed by God to give you hope and help you look past the present circumstance to eternal, steadfast truths. We have a feast to look forward to (Matthew 8:11), paradise to enjoy (Luke 23:39-43), a new body (2 Corinthians 5:1-10), an inheritance that can never perish (1 Peter 1:4), a better country (Hebrews 11:6), and eternal life forever and ever with our Lord (Revelation 21:1-22:17). Live in these promises today and you will find your hope growing and holding you strong no matter what you face in life.

I was out early shooting the sunrise this last week and this glimpse of God’s majesty reminded me to always look beyond the here and now all the way to God’s gracious promises and have a heart to see forever. I am on this pilgrimage of the heart with my Lord and when I am in season of the valleys and weeping, the promises of eternity lift my sights.

Your assignment for this coming week is to continue on in Pilgrimage of the Heart Week 2, Days 4-7.

♥ God bless you as you continue this great adventure of knowing Him!

Luke 5:16 NASB — But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray.
Amazing! Personal and touching! You will grow through this! Amazing because you will journey into new areas with the Lord that are going to help build your foundation in Him. This book is for anyone that wants to walk closer to God, no matter how close you already are. I would buy this for every woman I know if I could.
