"God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may only be aware of three of them"- John Piper
"It's not the load that breaks you down. It's the way you carry it." - C.S Lewis
The more you go with the flow of life and surrender the outcome to God, and the less you seek constant clarity, the more you will find that fabulous things start to show up in your life. I understand that we all go through the worst times that we think we will never get through, but ya know what? Six years ago you were going through something you thought you would never get through, and you did. Seven months ago you were going through something you thought you would never get through, and you did. Perhaps even a week ago you were going through something you thought you would never make it through, and you did. You may be going through something right now that you think you'll never get through, but you will. Every set-back is a set-up for a come-back. God never sends you into a situation alone. He goes before you, stands beside you, walks behind you, and even carries us along with all our burdens. Those who leave every thing in Gods hands will eventually see Gods hand in everything. Have you ever tried talking a friend into trying something to eat that they've never had? The whole time you are saying "JUST TRUST ME" and probably getting frustrated because you know it's so good but they're too afraid. That's how God is with us. He's up there telling us to just TRUST HIM because he knows what's best for us, but sometimes we're too scared. God doesn't call the qualified, he qualifies the called. If he called us to the task, he will qualify us for the job. God closes doors that no man can open and He opens doors that no man can ever close. Take the opportunities that he puts in your life, big and small, and have faith that he knows what is right for YOU.
My challenge for you today:
In whatever you have struggled with or are struggling with, look back and thank God and look forward and trust God. Really think and consider what God wants for YOU. Trusting God starts when you give up what you want, for what you know He wants for you.
Dear God, thank you for every thing that I have gone through. For it has taught me so many things including how to enjoy the little good things. Please help me to put my trust in you through the hard times because I know that you will take care of me and do what is best to help develop me into the best version of myself. Amen.
