Some days are tough. You question everything, you doubt everything, and you fear everything.
Some days you just can’t fathom why things are the way they are and you don’t even know if things will get better.
Some days you lose hope, you lose hope in yourself, you lose hope in what you were once certain of, and you lose hope in what you were looking forward to.
Some days you just break down and cry, some emotions are too heavy for words to carry, some things hurt so much you bleed in tears, so you let the tears fall like rain.
Some days you feel like your mind is about to explode, you know what the word of God says but it seems like it’s for others and not you, the advice you give people applies to them but not you, the prayers you pray for people, you can’t pray for yourself.
Some days you wish you could see the future, maybe you will be more relaxed, maybe you won’t have days like this, maybe there will be no need to write this.
Some days you wish you had all the answers. You wish God will chat you up and tell you everything you need to know.
On days like this you don’t get the exact answers you seek, but you do get something called ASSURANCE: He knows, and a nudge that is called TRUST:He will bring it to pass.
It is not going to be easy, but it will always be the right thing to do, and the first step is to take it one day at a time knowing He is with us and never leaving us, whether we feel it or not.
So we pray for grace to trust Him more. We won’t always have life figured out, but we can trust Him who has life in His hands, trust that He knows more than us, trust that He knows what is good for us, trust that He will direct us, trust that every good and perfect gift comes from Him, trust that He has a time for everything…
And if we get weary, or the cares of life causes us to make a detour, we can at any point always run to the throne of grace, for strength, for grace, for encouragement, for rest, for a reminder….
”I have never had clarity; what I have always had is trust”. Mother Teresa
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”………
