Thank you for joining us here on the House of Hope Radio Ministry program!
I want to share with you part of a post Sister Connie Keyohara made at FGGAM.ORG
This is a bit what Connie shared with us:
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5
There are many things in life that can cause us sadness. We all face difficulties, but one thing is for certain, God has the answer. Have you ever done something that you regret? Or maybe said something you can’t take back? Keep in mind that we all make mistakes we all fall and there’s no sin in falling, but the problem comes when you stay down.
There was a time in my life when I went through a really hard few years. In that time I didn’t turn to God, but I turned to other things. The sin came when I replaced God with things that didn’t matter. This all lead to things in my life that I was ashamed of. After much council And prayer the Lord eventually saw me through the battle.
In the following months after my battle I got depressed I felt like God couldn’t use me because I wasn’t obedient to him as I should’ve been. In retrospect I imagine that God only desired a broken and contrite heart, a heart he could work with.
