In life there will be times when things are hard to bear or life just seem so unfair. It’s like those times when a crisis comes upon us or our families unexpectedly. And we question God as if He caused the bad thing to happen. During, those times our minds are racing with questions like for instance: God why did you let this happen. ,Or how could you let this happen. As I reflected upon my own life about the times when God protected my family and I as we walked through our own dark storms. Enen though we ‘ve come to undsrstand that sometimes God just doesn’t make sense! As a result of all the confusion, we become angry and frustrated as we try to figure out the why’s and the how’s. Only because we can’t control or stop the pain. So, we fight for the control of how to make it disappear or at least fix it and we get frustrated even more.
But we have to grow to the place; where we realize that in reality there will be times in our lives where the answers are delayed or they may not come at all. And then there are times when the answer is delayed because its in His timing and not ours. Many of us have been in those tuff places where we were waiting on God to answer and yet, He was silent. I heard this quote the other day that said “waiting is a powerful thing,”
Though it may not seem like waiting and having .patience has no value at all. However, Romans 12:12 says, to “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer So, having patience in the midst of a crisis is humbling and powerful when God doesn’t make sense. There will be situations that we encounter in this life, that will shake us to our very core and will make no sense at all. But, we learn to trust God lean on Him so much more during, these times. His presence is ever near and we can trust Him to carry us through. May the God of hope fill your hearts with faith and courage to hold own to God and draw close to Him. He will never abandon us in the midst of a storm but is fully capable to carry us through the darkest storms of our lives
Grace & Peace,
The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not [a]want. He makes me to lie down in [b]green pastures;
He leads me beside the [c]still waters. He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life; And I will [d]dwell in the house of the Lord
[e]Forever. Psalm 23
