Have You Ever Challenged God?

So, one day going through my separation and process of divorce I was feeling pretty lost and alone and doubting myself and God’s Will for my life. I decided to get grounded and took a walk by myself through the woods to one of my favorite spots next to a stream. Over the years, God has given me many signs. The most prevalent are finding crosses and heart shaped rocks. I have a collection for sure that I will share with you here, so you’ll have to scroll through just a couple pictures. The first picture is the first rock I found on this particular day when I asked God for a sign. I think you’ll admit, this is a far stretch for a heart and I really needed a clear sign. I had received many as you see in the last picture, but I wasn’t impressed at all with this particular rock.

I couldn’t believe the words that came out of my mouth when I asked God, “Is this really the best you can do God?” Who was I to question God. I felt terrible, but He accepted the challenge and came through. I was brought to tears! The next picture in this post is what I found not even 30 seconds later when I looked down exactly where I was still standing. It brings tears to my eyes every time I share this story! The rock itself was not heart shaped, but engraved on it was a perfect heart and a cross! From that point on, my Faith in God has grown beyond my wildest expectations and it grows stronger every single day!

Sometimes he doesn’t give us what we are looking for, He gives us something better. We just have to be open to receiving it and put all our hope, trust, and faith in Him knowing He is with us always. We are not alone, and He loves us unconditionally and wants the best for us. He wants the best for all of His children just like we do our own! It is hard to comprehend at times, especially when we are faced with challenges and really hard to understand situations. It’s those situations though where He is making us stronger.
