"May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob defend you; May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice.  {Psalm 20:1}

It is simply amazing how good God is to His people. On our own, we do not represent any good thing that He would delight in, but He doesn't see us with natural eyes, He sees us with futuristic eyes. He sees what we will become, and He sees the blood of His Son. Does He answer in the day of trouble? Absolutely! It may not always seem like an answer, but He brings out of trouble, into rich reward.

I always look at the current situation around me, but I am learning as you are too, to remember what God sees and that he will bring me out. I have been dealing with awful allergies for the past few weeks. I have tried EVERYTHING, and even my allergist has said he can't do anything else for me. I am not stopped by this, only more determined to seek the Lord for answers. I know this may not seem like a big trial, but missing out on great weather, and family fun outside for another year doesn't make me want to jump for joy.

No matter what, I know God will use it for good in my life, and that is something to rejoice about! I can still write, and read, and exercise and mostly pray. We are such a needy society with anger that is unprecedented, and misguided people, who need Jesus! Prayer is the most necessary and important thing that we can do today! Ask God to have mercy on our President, Vice President, cabinet members and all those in governmental positions.

 Ask God to wake up those who sleep, who don't understand the heaviness of our times. Ask God to move in your church, that people will seriously love like Jesus did. Pray is what changes things, moves nations, and moves God to have mercy on us.
So don't be discouraged, ever, God wants to use YOU. Right where you are today. Tomorrow can be another step in the right direction! Blessings
