Just A Little While

From Joseph: This is a guest post by Michael Chukwu. You will learn more about Michael at the end of this post. I pray his words bless and inspire hope in you today and always. If you would like to guest post on my blog, here’s all you need to know

A woman during the child birth process has so much pain and sorrow but after the child is born she forgets about her agony. Why? A new child is born and the joy that follows is far greater than the pain she had gone through.

In your current phase of life, there might be pain. Maybe more than you think you can bear. But it’s just for a little while.

Your prayer might seem unanswered and unnoticed by heaven… Beloved, it’s just for a little while. God’s got a better plan for you.

Wondering if you will ever laugh again? The Lord says,

“I will visit you and your heart will rejoice. And your joy will not be taken away from you.”
 

REJOICE! It is just for a little while.

This is your time to laugh.

You will rise again.

Your prayers are answered.

Your days of sorrow and anguish are ended.

Your wasted years are restored.

“So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” John 16:22

Did you find these words relevant to your situation today? Let me know and be sure someone is praying for you.

    Thank God for His encouragement ! Brother Micael God bless you.

    • I was encouraged by his words too. They are God’s word in time of need.

      Thanks for Paul Baning for stopping by to read the post. Like the scripture says in 2Corinthians 1:4 …….., that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
      If we have ever got any comfort shown to us, It’s not meant for us alone. we simply need to pass it on.

  • “Your wasted years are restored.” definitely love these words and their impact. Such an encouragement. Thanks Michael for sharing – I guess sometimes the pain seems so painful – we don’t think about the joy awaiting us only if we hold on.

    • Michael’s words touched so many lives. I’ve had responses from Australia to that effect. God indeed restores.
