If we could talk face to face I would tell you that I’ve missed you. I’ve missed this. I’ve missed normal. For two years I have had a new normal that has been everything but normal. It’s been a new way of life. Not understanding what is going on inside of me and in my circumstances is difficult. However, knowing that God is allowing it all is comforting. It can also cause a major struggle with patience, peace and my “big-picture mentality”. I would be lying if I didn’t say my faith has been tried, tested and shaken. It has. I wish I could say that it wasn’t, but it was, and is still. However, since I believe and am certain that God uses everything in our lives for good and it can be used for His glory then I cling to that. (Romans 8:28)
I can’t tell you all the ways my life has been challenging. I am not in the place to be able to understand all of it nor am I in a place to be able to put it into words. Maybe I won’t ever. What I can tell you is that our God is good even when life isn’t. God is good even when your health isn’t. God is faithful even when people aren’t. God loves you even when you feel others don’t. God is good even when you are faithless. God is faithful even when you are not. Bottom line; God is worth it. He is worth pain, sorrow, suffering, loneliness, helplessness, persecution and so many other adjectives I don’t have room to describe. He is worth the peace and joy that the Holy Spirit provides when life & health are reeling out of control.
His Word is Truth. Because this belief is buried so deep within me by the power of His Spirit then I can say– even when everything looked as if I was alone and without Him I could stand on His Truth. His Holy Truth that says:
I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
Nothing can separate me from His love. Romans 8:38-39
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Believe today my friend. BELIEVE, for this is Truth.
In His Love,
