To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
I didn’t plan to post this and it isn’t my normal posting time but I am walking on clouds right now and just want to take a few moments and share my excitement with you.
You see, during the last 4 years of my life I’ve experienced the hardest times I’ve ever been through. I have felt so much loss, pain, and heartache, it has been almost unbearable. There were times that I wondered how to just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Without going into the past, of which I am not allowing myself to speak at the moment, I wanted to share with you how wonderful God has been to me in the present! I have experienced much change in my life and I have witnessed firsthand the healing power of God through these changes. Burdens have been lifted and I feel lighter than I have in a long time.
I am able to look back at the road I’ve traveled and see how He has brought me through. I’ve seen how He has made my paths straight again. I’ve seen how He has been working on the hearts of my precious children. And I am in awe.
I am in awe of His goodness and grace. I am in awe of His love and mercy. I am in awe that He can take situations that seem hopeless and turn them into stepping stones that take us on a glorious journey.
I’ve talked a lot about my struggles and you may have heard me or read about how I’ve been trudging through them, trying to hold on the best I could to the One who could pull me through. Well, today I want to share HOPE not despair with you. I want you to know that no matter what you’re going through, He is there holding onto you, pulling you through. He is there to take whatever it is you’re going through and turn it into GOOD.
Just keep your eyes on Him. I promise it’s worth it and the other side of this situation you’re in is far greater than anything you could have ever imagined!
There are seasons of life. There are times that will be hard and times that will be easier (Life is never easy huh?). No matter what season of life you’re in, hold onto the promise that God is always there. And even if you’re holding on by a thread, just keep holding on!
