Out of the Blue
It's been a few very hard days both with the miscarriage and some other issues. Still, God works in His mysterious ways. An old colleague sent me an e-mail out of the blue. She has undergone some massive life changes recently and wrote the following:
Then a second friend, not knowing all that has been happening, said that in her prayer time the following verses were laid on her heart for me:
"He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised." Romans 4:20-21
"...hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair..." 2 Cor. 4:8
"In your distress you called and I rescued you." Psalm 81:7a
Out of the blue is an expression meant to mean something caught you by surprised or something unexpected. These words of encouragement have helped me emerge a little stronger from my sadness and fear. They have literally lifted me out of the blue.
