Scripture of the Day - December 29, 2011

Genesis 39:21 But the Lord was with Joseph and shewed him mercy and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. 

Sometimes we end up in terrible situations that are not of our own doing and we wonder why God allowed this terrible thing to happen to us. We think we are doing the right thing...we think we are doing our best...but the bottom sometimes falls out of the barrel anyway. Why? Who knows? 
I'll tell you who knows...God does...and if we just keep following after His ways God will show us mercy and give us favor. He has proven that over and over in His the rest of Joseph's story to find out...and He has proven that over and over in my life but my story isn't over yet. Neither is yours. keep your eyes focused on Him, seek His kingdom first and He will show you mercy and give you favor.
