He will not abandon.

God is at work. Always. He consistently uses our circumstances for the good of His kingdom. He has called us according to His purpose to give glory to Him and to spread the word of His love. Sometimes I miss that memo. My mind tends to cling to the worst possible scenario when things do not work out my way.

In an attempt to seek peace after dealing with some recent news, I stumbled upon Psalm 138.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life;
you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes,
with your right hand you save me.
8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me;
your love, O LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me. He has not abandoned me and will never abandon me. His work is not complete. Today I experienced God's love in the exact capacity I needed. It was a great reminder that He is using every minute of my time and my family's time to direct people to Him. Right now His purpose is not clear to me. However, I have found comfort in the fact that it is all part of His sovereign plan. I can roll with that.
