It never fails…
God knows what we need better than we do.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “This is the most trying time of my life! Could it get any harder?” If so then I’m going to guess and say that, no more does the thought cross your mind, when you get hit with something else.
Personally, I think this is the most trying time of my life, at least thus far. And of course, the blows just keep coming (there’s nothing like a real friend or family member who kicks you when you’re already down.) But, that’s OK because learning how to survive those blows only makes me stronger and more determined.
Go ahead… underestimate me.
You won’t be the first and you won’t be the last,
but you WILL be wrong.
Believe it or not, once my anger subsides (if there is any) it only proves to make me more loving, caring, understanding and compassionate than I already am. That doesn’t mean I’ll be back for more, because I’ve learned to let it help me move forward instead. It is especially during these times that I am reminded of my self-worth and value as a person, and I recognize how much better I deserve to be treated as a human being. So, for that I am grateful.
Sometimes, you have to love yourself enough to walk away.
Experiences like this also make me more Christ like and I will spend the rest of my days weathering storms of hate, dishonesty, and ugliness as long as that is the outcome. As long as I allow God to use it for the good and don’t become angry, bitter or hateful like the one who hurt me, it will be OK. If I allow it to change me and help me grow, so I become more like Him and less like you, then I will dry my tears and continue the climb every time.
It never fails…
Every time the devil swoops in to steal and destroy,
God sends the Spirit to replenish and an Angel to redeem.
I am grateful, because everything happens for a reason.
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
I can’t even tell you how many emails, IM’s, phone calls and texts I’ve been receiving during these past couple of weeks from everyone since you found out we were on the move again. I’m not even sure how so many people knew this time, but God did. He has known exactly what we’ve needed and has been working through you to provide. I can’t thank you enough for all the support and encouragement I’ve been receiving in so many different ways. And I just want to say a special thank you to everyone who keeps pointing me to Christ during these trials and tribulations.
It’s short and sweet… God knows what we need better than we do regarding every single aspect of our lives. All He asks of us is to trust and have faith in Him. I know somehow that everything is going to work out and be OK and maybe it really is just as simple as believing it (having faith.) God has never once failed me or left my side either, no matter how alone I’ve felt at times. And somehow, He makes it all work out even if I don’t make the best choices every time, and maybe that’s where trust comes in.
Have faith and trust in Him.
