God Still Does Big Things: In a moment, God can bless you with something or take away something that you have desired for years. Don’t give up. What might God have around the corner that you will only experience if you don’t give up? Think about it. What is around the corner is not something that can be seen with the natural eye, but it can be held in faith. This is easier said than done, right? Yes, it is. But what is governing my thinking? Is God’s truth on the throne of my mind and heart? It better be; if it is not, then my emotional and spiritual life is most likely out of whack (this is putting it nicely).
