God can take the roughest situations and turn them into the greatest pieces of Art.
The darkest times of our lives are only preparing us for the greatest illumination of light that will shine out of us.
It is all for God’s glory.
Do you know what I’m talking about ? I’m talking about pressure.
The four walls are closing in and the fire seems to just keep getting hotter and hotter. You can’t breathe, and theres no outs….
What do you do?
Well, this is where most people will say, “This is it. I’m trapped. There’s no way out. Tell everyone I love them and it was good knowing them ✌.”
In middle school, that was me. Looking back, I realize that the reason why I wanted to commit suicide was because I couldnt handle the pressure. I couldnt handle being bullied, being over weight, being “ugly” and not as hip as the other girls and boys. I couldn’t handle wearing Wal-Mart clothes while everyone else shopped at the fancy stores. I couldn’t handle that. So, I wanted to give up. But God.
I thank him for putting the right people in my life to teach me how to release. Ive been writing ever since, and now that I know my worth, I dont want to commit suicide anymore. Ive passed that stage. Now I’m at the stage of not running away, but facing fears and learning stability. Thats why I have this blog; to journey through and document growths as I press towards the highcalling of God in Christ Jesus. Hopefully we can do it together. 🙂
Can you imagine once we reach the perfect maturity of trusting God no matter what? Can you imagine how powerful it will be when we become as still as a tree planted and as still as a mountain?. Ha! God is good and we’re on our way. Nothing will be able to move us. That’s Powerful!
God is so good! Trust that he knows what he’s doing.
So even though my bank account is at a negative $350..(and counting), even if I’m past due on my medical bills, even if I have no money for gas or food, even if I have no place to lay my head,GOD IS STILL WORKING.
Ecclesiastes says there is a time for________ and a time for________
So I know that because I am at my lowest now, there will be a great turn over! Because there is a time for dark, and a time for light. There is a time to mourn and a time to rejoice! So I am waiting on the Windows of heaven to open up and pour out a blessing I won’t have room enough to receive in Jesus name! Because that’s how God works!!!
“Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.”
1 John 4:4
So, As odd as it may sound, God will keep his children in the midst of suffering until we can produce the fruit that he is looking for. Its only to better us. And instead of dying, why not live it out? Why not share your journey? Why not build?
At this point in life, IM STILL living with mom, sisters, and neices. I have a couch to sleep on, and no idea how soon I will get my own house or when my finances will clear up, But…its ok. I will serve others with joy and know that the seeds I’ve planted will be harvested full perfection in Jesus name. Amen!
We are a work in progress and until God has his perfect work in us, we will Experience suffering just like Jesus did.
Press your way through.
Count it all joy. Because our suffering produces PRECIOUS JEWELS.
