Many times in life, we are faced with situations that overwhelm us. Tragedy or other unexpected events hit us right out of the blue. One moment, everything is moving along and then you receive that phone call, that email, or text message. We find out something that cuts us deeply. We fall into discouragement or disillusionment. No matter who you are, you will face problems. You will have some things that will cause you deep pain and hurt. We ride this emotional roller coaster from time to time. The pressures of life mount up, every side seems to cave in and you feel like giving up.
I love what Henry Nowen said “This is the great conversation in our life to recognize and believe that the many unexpected events are not just disturbing interventions of our lives, but the way in which God moves our hearts and prepares us.”
Do you believe that God is moving and preparing your heart?
Jesus said, “My grace is sufficient.” no need that you have is greater than God’s supply of grace. Every moment of every second, there is ample provision for your every need. It all comes down to trust. Do you trust a good, Holy, wonderful God who knows best? Today, lean into him, trust him, throw yourself at him, and fall into his arms. Trust in him and believe that he is who he says he is!
I am not saying that your pain does not hurt, I am not saying that the pain is not real, I AM saying in the midst of your deepest hurt and frustration, to be still and know that he is God! He loves you and has a plan for you. That plan is bigger and better than anything you could ever hope for or imagine. TRUST!
