Gratefulness and Pain

I’m thankful that I know God. Without Him, there is no hope. Even through my darkest times, He has always been with me. There have been so many times where I felt like he had forgotten me and I was alone. Grief has a way of stealing ones joy and sense of security. The enemy feeds on the sadness and uses it to try and separate you from God and other people. God is showing me that He is the only thing, the only one, who can save me from the darkness.

  1. So true Joni…

    “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
    ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭23:4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

  2. well said. I have started reading “Knowing God” by J.I. Packer. It was the well-worn copy that my friend had at church one Sunday that caught my attention. Really will help take your discipleship of Jesus so much deeper.. wow…

  3. Hello Joni Getting to know Our Heavenly Father is a life long process. You can also read The Book of Mormon which is another Testament to Jesus Christ. I say this as an Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We have people who are ready to talk and go from there Joni.
