As believers we have our up days and down days. In both of those moments, it is vital that we draw closer to God in order to grow in his love and grace. If you ever need a quick gut check, just stop pray and ask God what His will is for you. Its a humbling experience.
I got some news yesterday that I didn’t know how to process. So I told myself, it will be ok, it will work out. I felt good for awhile until I told someone else about the news. Boy did a rage and dread fill me. So it was only then that I managed to stop and cry out to God about my frustration and how I needed Him. Then I was able to do a massive clean up of my room. I still have some things to straighten up but it looks way better than it was.
The point is, sometimes its just about perspective. Even though something that I cannot control can try to knock me down, I have to know and trust that God is in control and He didn’t bring me this far to have me fall into a hole.
“And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20(NLT)
