This is not one of my usual posts. In fact it’s from my first blog which was very different than this one. Nonetheless I’m sharing an old post here because quite frankly I needed it and I’m sure someone else will too. There is a shift happening in my life right now and all I can say is it’s uncomfortable. However one thing I know for sure is that when the dust settles there will be overwhelming peace so for now I will just stand……
When you’re going through and people say “everything happens for a reason” you want to roll your eyes or cringe. At least that was the case for me. It’s not that I doubted there was a reason but when your in the midst of a storm, it’s not exactly what you want to hear.Recently I learned just how true this very statement is.
When I was going through one of the roughest seasons of my life I couldn’t understand why it seemed as though everything around me was crumbling. Nothing was going right. In fact the more I tried to fix things the more they broke. That in itself was the problem. I was trying to fix things. When you muddy up your life you can’t fix it. You have to let go and let God fix it.
Psalm 34:17 The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
I had to lay my life down and allow God to take over. Once I did this my life drastically changed for the better. Things that used to bother me no longer affected me, I worried less, I prayed more, my faith increased, doors that were once closed were now open! This was a process it did NOT happen over night.
The reason everything was going wrong for me was because I was tied to things and people that weren’t in alignment with the purpose God had for my life. In order for God to bless me he had to strip me of the mess that I was in. I didn’t and couldn’t understand it while I was in it but I understand it all now.
This pastor I love listening to Real Talk Kim always says “rejection is Gods protection.” Very recently I learned just how true that statement is. I could have been in midst of a tragic situation if I hadn’t accepted that rejection really is God’s protection. Now I see exactly what God was protecting me from and I’m beyond grateful. We may not understand why things are the way they are in the moment but God will reveal it to you in due time and it will make so much sense and give you peace when your walking on the other side…
Be encouraged and know that God is for you!!! He will reveal all things in due time.
Galatians 6:9 So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
