    TRUST IN GOD

    The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God how could you do this to me!" he cried.

    Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" Asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

    It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad. But we shouldn't lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain and suffering. Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the ground it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God. For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves, God has a positive answer for it:

    YOU SAY GOD SAYS BIBLE VERSES
    You say: "It's impossible" God says: All things are possible (Luke 18:27)
    You say: "I'm too tired" God says: I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28-30)
    You say: "Nobody really loves me" God says: I love you (John 3:16 & John 3:34)
    You say: "I can't go on" God says: My grace is sufficient (II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalm 91:15)
    You say: "I can't figure things out" God says: I will direct your steps (Proverbs 3:5-6)
    You say: "I can't do it" God says: You can do all things (Philippians 4:13)
    You say: "I'm not able" God says: I am able (II Corinthians 9:8)
    You say: "It's not worth it" God says: It will be worth it (Roman 8:28)
    You say: "I can't forgive myself" God says: I Forgive you (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)
    You say: "I can't manage" God says: I will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19)
    You say: "I'm afraid" God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (II Timothy 1:7)
    You say: "I'm always worried and frustrated" God says: Cast all your cares on ME (I Peter 5:7)
    You say: "I don't have enough faith" God says: I've given everyone a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)
    You say: "I'm not smart enough" God says: I give you wisdom (I Corinthians: 30)
    You say: "I feel all alone" God says: I will never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5)

    Blackwing, I really like your list of "You Say God Says Verses!" That's very clever of you and it brings to mind who He is:

    1. all powerful (all things are possible with God),
    2. merciful (I will give you rest),
    3. faithful (I will never leave you or forsake you),
    4. loving (I forgive you), etc.

    It's good for us to go over in our minds the attributes of God and how dependent we are on Him. He is my all in all!

    Thanks for sharing!
