Guess I’m just having a moment lol, thinking about things. And you know, following Christ isn’t a convenience for anyone. Regardless of whether you’ve been committed for decades or just got saved a week ago…
Christ suffered persecution, and so will His true followers. Everyone on this earth will go through trials, but with Christ we gain a peace that surpasses our understanding. (Philippians 4:6)
I guess I’m just kind of overlooking my journey thus far. And while I didn’t understand any of God’s movements in the beginning, the more this chapter unfolds the more it all comes together. And it becomes much clearer that this destination was going to be inevitable ultimately, but had I not listened to God and submitted to doing it His way early on, I could’ve very well made life far more complicated and stressful than it needed to be. 😅🤪
I could still be confirmed that God would have made a way through for me had I continued to be stubborn, but life was definitely made easier doing it God’s way despite my uncertainty and fear and I can truly see that now that I see more things unfolding. I maintained more peace even in the midst of what looks like such a chaotic transition.
Heh, my need to control runs DEEP. And I don’t think I really understood this need as much as I understand it now. I’m so used to taking things into my own hands because of a pattern of disappointment leaving my destiny in the hands of others. And it’s like, if I can’t trust the very people in front of me, it kinda makes it that much harder to trust what you can’t see.
But that’s the whole point, I suppose. The one we can’t see is not an imperfect man, but a perfect supernatural God. And He’s requesting for me to just… believe. And that’s honestly been this whole experience thus far.
Do you believe?
Well, for all the crazy shenanigans I’ve been pulling lately, I have to be feeling convicted of SOMETHING! lol
You don’t just up and do half the stuff I’ve done without feeling a strong conviction about it. And one day, God will let me tell my story…I just hope it all makes sense lol.
I dunno where I’m going with this lol. I don’t think I ever know where I’m going with anything these days, but fortunately… God knows where I’m going. And as long as I keep resting in Him, He will make a way through.
Our suffering is not in vain… yes, Jesus will make it easy for us to bear it, but we will still hear thunder and see lightning. But even in the thick of the storm, just remember that rainbows still exist.
Just remember that soon… we’ll be walking on heaven. 🙂
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.Revelation 7: 16, 17
Love you. Mean it!
