I no longer ask why things happen in my life, because I know I only look at things from my perspective, and my emotions can paint moments in colors they might not actually be in reality.
Instead, I have been trying to accept I am not only GREATLY LOVED (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:4, Colossians 3:12, 1 Thessalonians 1:4) I am GROUNDED in Him, grafted permanently into His family. And trusting that He is trustworthy with all of me and every area of my life as He GUIDES me through each moment.
This song below rekindled my desire to worship after one such rough 48 hour period.
God spoke the verse referred to in this song below to me through a prophetic sister, because He wanted to reassure me of His love and trustworthiness when I needed to hear His voice.
♬”Let the heroes rest, let the striving cease. I lay down my crown here at your feet. Let the weary rise, lift their eyes to see Your love crushing every lie, every doubt & fear…I will, trust, here in the mystery. I will, trust, in You completely… Awake my soul to sing with Your breath in me I will worship. You taught my feet to dance upon disappointment and I, I will worship. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, You are making all things new…♬ – Heroes, Amanda Cook
“When the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, He will take you by the hand and GUIDE you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said.” John 16:13 MSG
May you too be encouraged to seek Him first in the hard times, and place your trust in the One who is willing and able to love, protect, comfort and carry you through any situation.
