I don’t know about you but life can just be down right hard and painful. I’m going through some stuff I never thought I’d be going through, in my wildest dreams. It hurts and yet sometimes things and trials of life can’t be avoided.
Precious one, you may be living in hell right now. You may be feeling the effects of someone’s choices, or maybe even your own choices. You may have had a bad doctors report, or a loved one gone astray. You may have a financial need, or need a breakthrough in your marriage. Maybe you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction. We’ve all got our stuff and we’ve all been there at some point. But it’s what you do when you’re in the middle of the mess and chaos that counts.
Do you set up camp there or do you begin talking to yourself, and stirring yourself up? I’ll be honest sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in my pain and set up camp there but that’s not what God wants us to do. I know I can get stuck in the middle, pitch a tent and say this particular situation isn’t going to get any better. Maybe you’re there today, maybe you can relate?
The important thing to know is that we can’t pitch a tent and stay stuck in the middle of our mess or our problems. In the middle, is where our Savior does his best work. In the middle, is where we see what’s on the inside that needs to come out. In the middle, is where the fire is, it’s where we are purified and refined. So you can’t give up in the middle because there’s a miracle on the other side sweet friend.
You may not have had a good childhood, and what your living in right now might not look good either. But God’s word says I will give you beauty for ashes, praise for your despair beautiful one. Invite Him in he wants to heal you every where you hurt. He wants to bring restoration to you. He wants to do great and mighty things in your life, things you can’t even comprehend. He’s rewriting your story. His GLORY will be manifested in your life, and what the devil meant to harm and to destroy God will work to your good! You are victorious, and a overcomer…..so never give up. You are NOT a problem but answer to problem in this world!! You are awesome and wonderfully made, never doubt that!
Have a wonderful day. God bless you!
We breathe in your grace
Oh God we do not exist for us
But to share Your grace and love
And hold you close
Get lost in the surrender
Breathe it in until your heart breaks
