Day 30 - Falling Forward

We are all going to have doubts about something life throws at us, that is a given.  It is how we handle those doubts that will have us falling forward into the arms of Jesus or backwards in the snares of Satan.  It we are doubting a relationship, we should lay that doubt at the foot of the cross in prayer and speak with that person.  If we are doubting a position, an event, a decision we've made, again, we should take it to the cross.  Even if we are doubting Jesus, take it to Him just like John did.  Doubt is contagious. Doubt is dangerous.  Jesus knows what is is our hearts, that is why it is best just to take it to Him so he can help us get through it.  Then one day, we will understand a little better why we tried and tested.

I found this in our Baptist Hymnal and wanted to share it.

By and By (When the Morning Comes)

Trials dark on every hand,
And we cannot understand
All the ways that God would lead us
To that blessed promised land;
But He'll guide us with His eye,
And we'll follow till we die;
We will understand it better by and by.

By and by, when the morning comes,
When the saints of God are gathered home,
We will tell the story
How we've overcome;
We will understand it better by and by.

Oft our cherished plans have failed,
Disappointments have prevailed,
And we've wandered in the darkness,
Heavy handed and alone;
But we're trusting in the Lord,
And according to His word,
We will understand it better by and by

Temptations, hidden snares
Often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed
For some thoughtless word or deed,
And we wonder why the test
When we try to do our best,
But we'll understand it better by and by.
