ON THE OTHER SIDE

12192014-Friday

“Then you will say on that day, ‘I will give thanks to You, O Lord; for although You were angry with me, You anger is turned away, and You comfort me’” (Isaiah 12:1).

The assurance of God’s word is that there will be another day; that no matter the depth of pain, grief, sorrow, or adversity, you will emerge out the other side. With the experiences of life and the words of scripture that speak of another day that is coming, I have come to realize that we do not “get through” our hardships as much as we “go through” them. To think that we “get through” something gives the false impression that things will be as they once were. A more accurate truth is, after we have “gone through” something painful it leaves us forever changed.
