The Affliction That May Come...

So do not begrudge the affliction that may come. Press deeply into Jesus. Allow those broken edges to show you how desperate you are for Jesus. Kara Tippetts

...and she shares these verses as a reminder of His faithfulness;

I know, O LORD, that your rules are righteous, and in faithfulness you have afflicted me. Let your steadfast love comfort me according to your promise to your servant. Let your mercy come to me, that I may live; for your law is my delight.

— Psalm 119:76,77
The affliction that may come
Can cause our hearts to fear
But just as in our Better Days
God is near
The affliction that may come
Could steal our inner peace
But God's kind mercy even then
Does not cease
The affliction that may come
Is never greater than
The faithful love and grace of God
Thus, We can
Janet Martin
