12/365: Trouble Doesn't Last Forever

For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone.  ~ Lamentations 3: 31-33

Rainy days will come and go. In the midst of our trouble, it may seem as if God is being harsh.  Rest assured, God isn't harsh, but consistent with His truth - because He loves us. 

If you are on a long-dark road today, remember that God does not willingly bring pain and grief.  Sometimes we bring the pain due to some pretty lousy choices on our part.  

So don't blame God for being consistent with His truth. Pray to receive His truth.
