Never alone

Tonight, for the first time, I watched the movie Hope Floats. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I absolutely hated the very beginning. Because things like that really do happen all the time in reality is why, when I dropped cable, I didn’t even bother to hook up the regular antenna to my tv. Instead, I used the tv solely to watch movies that I owned or borrowed from family. I was tired of being depressed and/or angered by what is aired on most channels and finally decided that $80/month was too much to pay for Animal Planet and a few good music channels.

But, back to the movie, it wasn’t all bad. Despite it’s beginning, her one inappropriate night with Justin, and my tears throughout the second half, I liked it because it reminded me of a lesson that I’ve learned more than once – more like two lessons, actually.

1. We are never alone.

“…I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20

“…be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

2. Even when things do not seem to be going the way that we think they should, it doesn’t mean that everything will not turn out right. There is always someone greater in control.

“…For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8

” And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God…” Romans 8:28

“No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13
