What's Increasing in 2019?

What's Increasing in 2019?

I believe many of us in 2019 are going to experience a fresh saturation of God’s goodness.

The past few years have been some of the most challenging.  Though God has not caused the trouble we have seen in our lives, He has and will certainly use it.  

This is shown to us again and again throughout the scriptures: 

After the desert came the Promised Land; 

After prison came the promotion; 

After the fiery furnace came the fourth man; 

After the Cross came the resurrection.

Blessing would not shine as bright without the battle; it is the battle which puts blessing into perspective.  

For those who have endured the battle, and not quit, there is great blessing ahead.

God, You're Late.

God, You're Late.

Have you ever felt God was late in answering your prayer or coming to your rescue? 

Have you lost hope in seeing your promise come to pass?

In this guest post for Single Matters magazine, Jen explores those questions and looks a bit deeper behind the reasons we may have to wait.  

This blog is not only for singles, but for anyone who has ever wondered about God's timing in their circumstances.

But is that the overcoming life the Bible talks about?
