God Can Turn It Around
Updated: Jan 3
I am going through, what could be, the most difficult time in my life. I have so many irons in the fire my head is spinning. My life feels like a soap opera. Don't get me wrong, I love Young & The Restless, but this kind of trauma is not fun to live. Everyday I remind myself that God does not make bad things happen. We go through terrible struggles in life. Sometimes its a consequence to our actions, sometimes its just the way it is. Either way, God does not cause it to happen. God pulls us through.
Monday I was a wreck. I barely made it through the morning. I was crying off and on. I wasn't able to be my normal cheerful self at the job I love so much. It was an awful feeling to be so weighed down. I wanted to crawl into a ball and just be held while I cry. The thought crossed my mind and almost immediately I felt the spirit envelope me. I KNEW God was already holding me and I don't need to cry! By 11:00 I had decided I wasn't going to let my situation get me down any more. I made a choice. I prayed. I prayed for a long time. I started focusing on God and the good in my life, and God turned it around.
I keep reminding myself, I need to let go of control. I need to let Jesus take over. Once we open our hearts to God, God comes running in to save the day. God comes running, arms open to save our lives.
We all have struggles, I pray tonight that we pray. That we can kneel down at the feet of Jesus, lay down our burdens, and find peace and comfort. As heavy as those burdens are for us, God grabs them and demolishes them as if they are nothing. I encourage you to lean into God. Look for the good, and let God give you rest.
Today I am stronger than I knew I could be. God is using this time in the dark valley to mold and shape me. I am not breaking, I am becoming more....more faithful, more loving, more aware, more ME. Praise be to God!
