I spend a lot of time daily with my heating pad, bible, and note pad. Sometimes late night and always early morning. I can thank my present trial for a lot of present gifts.
Now, I know I’m not the only one in pain. Every time I even head out my house I run into someone much worse than myself. I feel so drawn to come alongside others hurting and give them reason to hope.
Right now someone needs to hear these words. You are going to be alright. God is with you and God will never leave you.
Don’t let fear of the unknown shatter your faith. In fact, let it help you cling even tighter to your faith in Jesus Christ alone.
You see, before something life altering happens we think we’re in control. Then, unforeseen circumstance makes it clear we never were calling the shots.
God is not allowing this trial to destroy you. But, God plans for it to awaken you, develop you, and let you see where true hope comes from.
People and circumstances will change like the weather. Therefore, lasting peace can only be found in a never changing Heavenly Father.
So, in your time of seeming desperation don’t get bitter, but cry out to Jesus like never before. He will pick you up and carry you through the present valley.
In God’s hands there is no such thing as useless pain or hopeless situations. Every second of your struggle is divinely purposeful. So let go and let God work. You will discover God is faithful time and time again.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” (James 1:2-4)
“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:6)
