The last few weeks were so horrible I thought I’d abandon all plans of developing my blog. But then I realized that if I blog only when I’m happy and I am ready to abandon ship as soon as life doesn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, then what’s the point?
So here I am, back to my senses, after two weeks of wallowing in self-pity, and another week of pondering upon my bleak future. After this self-imposed pessimism, I decided to get back on track and realized that I needed God now, more than ever.
God is good, all the time!!
This is one of those ‘call out’ phrases I’ve heard quite so often. God is faithful every hour, every second of every day, no matter what. Then why should MY faith vary with my level of happiness?
So what if you didn’t get what you expected? Maybe what you expected would have broken your heart in the long run. You don’t know what’s good for you, God does. God loves you; today, tomorrow, forever. He will not place you where his grace cannot keep you.
I know I know. Its easier said than done. Waiting on God to show us the way is never easy. In fact, the pre-miracle wait is always the scariest; the moment just before the Red Sea split, the 5000 hungry followers, the four days after Lazarus’s death. We know there will be a miracle, a way out of this mess, but the wait is dreadful. However, if we somehow manage to hold on, just for a while, we see the light at the end of the tunnel. The things that troubled us so much just yesterday, will seem insignificant. And all will be good.
