From Bitter to Better

From Bitter to Better

The only time you truly know the value and strength of an anchor is during a storm. When the waters are rising around you and you are finding it hard to hold on and stay afloat, that’s when you see God show up.

Nothing will make God more real to you than those times when what you thought was a blessing turns bitter. Maybe it’s a job that has turned bitter, or a marriage, or a friendship. Maybe your health, your finances or your worries about your nation and culture. It can happen in lots of ways.

God is often doing His greatest work when it seems like He is nowhere to be found.

God longs to bring you and me into deeper experiences with Him. And He’s our only anchor in the storms of life.
