You really don’t know who you are, where you are and what you’re made of until life knocks you flat on your back. It’s then you’re introduced to your humanity and desperateness for an Almighty God. It’s then you learn to value things that really matter and trust things that really last. It’s then God puts your faith in four wheel drive and reveals His faithfulness. It’s there that you learn how to relinquish control and truly let Jesus take the wheel.
You see, before you thought you were in control. Before you thought you were walking by faith. Before you thought you had faced adversity. But, now you know how it feels to be powerless and broken.
At this moment you just want to get back on your feet. You just want to get passed the present storm. But, hopefully once you get through and get up you never forget what God has shown you while flat on your back. I know this for sure: True brokenness before God will lead to beautiful and better days.
“Humble yourself before the Lord and He will lift you up.”
