The worst thing that ever happened to me turned out to be the best. The most difficult moment in my life led to all the best moments. How is this possible? God is able to take everything and turn it around. To bring beauty out of ashes. We don’t always believe that when we are struggling. It may seem like there is no reason for the suffering. We long for a world where there is no pain and all the endings are happy. This desire is from Him and it encourages us to believe that we were created for more.
However..we are here and every moment of this life is important. God has a great plan for this lifetime He has given us. He does not want us to live halfheartedly waiting for heaven. Easy for her to say..right? No..it isn’t. My life has been far from perfect..but I have learned a few things that help me live it fully. God tends to be much slower than I am.. I have spent so much of my life waiting..wondering why it is all taking so long. When I look back now I realize that I appreciate everything so much more..because of the waiting. It was actually a gift from Him.
Are you fearful and depressed thinking that God has forgotten you? He hasn’t. Are you afraid of a terrible moment that may happen in the future? Afraid that you would not live through it? You will and He will be with you. Not only is He with you..He will use it for good. He will turn it around and make it a new beginning like He did for me. His plan is always unfolding..some of it is mysterious and we don’t have all the answers..but it is not random or out of control.
Keep your eyes on Him.. His eyes are on you. Believe that there is nothing impossible with God. Pray for more faith. Ask for encouragement. Know that He is bigger than you can imagine.
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
