It’s been a while friends. Everything and yet nothing has changed….if that even makes sense.
Everything has changed in regards to me being in a new season. But nothing has changed because I’m still having to lean on my God wholeheartedly and trust that His ways are higher than mine. Hallelujah!
Just writing these words is giving me the clarity I have longed to see for some time. I’m currently in a season where the Lord has positioned me to achieve some things on my own, of course He is always with me, guiding and providing, but through these new set of circumstances, He is actually pushing me to lean upon Him MORE in this season…I didn’t think I could possibly depend upon Him more than I already am. But the amazing thing is, He is ushering me to trust in Him in a way I have never really had to before. He is deepening my walk with Him!!! *weeps*….. Wow! He is indeed a kind and loving, miracle working God.
I have struggled to see it until now, but the trials I am currently going through are another way for Him to change and purify another aspect of my character for His glory. Don’t get me wrong, trials are hard. They have a tendency to cause worry and anxiety to rise up, BUT GOD!! He knows these traits are not of Him and so He sends situations our way, that cause us to cast all our fears, our worries and concerns upon Him, because He is GREATER than them all!! Trials allow Jesus to demonstrate that He is who He says He is! Our Provider, Healer, Comforter, Saviour, Protector, Guide, Saviour and Friend.
Thank You for the trials Lord!
“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”
1 Peter 4:12-13 KJV
