There are times in life when we are very vulnerable and can easily be swayed into doing something we might not want to do or feel we are being pressured into before we are ready. We may seek opinions of our friends and loved ones because we don’t feel we can make the right decision on our own. We may even feel that we don’t deserve the best. Sometimes, we even feel like maybe God forgot about us because things seem to be falling apart all around us.
It’s times like this when we must remember that when those storms and unforeseen circumstances and tragedies come our way, it is God who is teaching us a lesson. He is making us stronger. Sometimes He even withholds success from us because we are too weak to handle it. When these trial happen, we should give God thanks for the opportunity to become stronger, to become the person He wants us to become. Then we need to believe that He knows what He is doing and His way is the perfect way. His timing is the perfect timing.
After the dust settles, you will be able to put the puzzle pieces together and realize that you are where you need to be; you are grounded; you are in a more secure place; you are a stronger person; and He has led you to a place a peace! He is preparing you for all of His Glory and all of gifts He has waiting for you to receive are on their way!
All you have to do is Believe and Receive!
