"This is My Doing."

"The disappointments of life are simply the hidden appointments of love." - C.A. Fox
This picture was given to me, several times,
when I was going through some of my
deepest losses.
My child, I have a message for you today. Let me whisper it in your ear so any storm clouds that may arise will shine with glory, and the rough places you may have to walk will be made smooth. It is only four words, but let them sink into your inner being, and use them as a pillow to rest your weary head.

"This is My doing."

Have you ever realized that whatever concerns you concerns Me too?
"For whoever touches you touches the apple of [My] eye." Zechariah 2:8
"You are precious and honored in my sight!" Isaiah 43:4
Therefore is is MY special delight to teach you.

I want you to learn when temptations attack you, and the enemy comes in... "He will come like a rushing stream which the wind of the LORD drives." (Isaiah 59:19), "This is My doing."  Safety lies in letting Me fight for you.

Are you in difficult circumstances,
surrounded by people who do not understand you,
never ask your opinion, and ALWAYS push you aside?
"This is My doing." 

I am the God of circumstances. You DID NOT come to this place by accident - you are exactly where I meant for you to be.

Have you not asked Me to make you humble? Then see that I have placed you in the perfect school where this lesson is taught. Your circumstances and the people aroound you are only being used to accomplish My will.

...Are you experiencing a time of sorrow?
"This is My doing."
I am "a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering." (Isaiah 53:3)
I have allowed your earthly comforters to fail you,
so that by turning to Me you may receive "eternal encouragement and and good hope by grace." (2 Thessalonians 2:16)

Today I place a cup of holy oil in your hands.
Use it freely, My child.
Anoint with it every new circumstance,
every word that hurts you,
every interruption that makes you impatient,
and every weakness you have!

The pain will leave as you learn to see Me in all things.

- Laura A. Barter Snow
