Occasionally God allows things to get "shaken up" in our lives. He does it so that we will recognize Him as our source of strength for the ministry we are in. You may wake up one day and realize life as you knew it no longer exists. It can change that much and sometimes in an instant.

God is always at work around us and uses us as instruments to accomplish His work. We get the idea sometimes that we are doing a work and He is the tool we rely on to help us. Listen to this quote:

"There are times and places where God will form a mysterious wall around us, and cut away all props, and all the ordinary ways of doing things, and shut us up to something divine, which is utterly new and unexpected, something that old circumstances do not fit into, where we do not know just what will happen, where God is cutting the cloth of our lives on a new pattern, where He makes us look only to Himself."

Have you been there? Nothing familiar, no props, no human comfort, only the Lord. If you haven't, you will, and if you have, you will be there again. That is the only way we experience that "something divine."

Find comfort in this: "In sorest trials God often makes the sweetest discoveries of Himself."

* The source of the 2 quotes is unknown to me. I copied them from a journal that I record them in.

This is great! The times I have experienced this in my life have been the greatest growing times in my relationship with Christ. Very special and sacred moments that God has made Himself real to me.
