I have faced and the battles that crash into my life have not conquered or defeated me..but made me stronger. I didn't realize how strong I was until now..no not how strong I was, but how strong He is. It is so true that God will never give us more then we can handle and the things we face before us are there for a reason. We have to learn to conquer each, becoming stronger and stronger in Christ. Each fight has opened my heart more and more to the pain of others, the knowledge of how truly broken this world is. It has redirected the focus off of me and to someone else. I love deeper then I have ever loved before, held on harder, lifted my head higher, my shoulders straightened back..no I am not the same girl I use to be. The fight has not made me weak and frayed. It has caused me to grow and to become more the child God wants me to be. Showed me even more the plan He has for me here on earth. This is a battle that all of us face. Something in our life or multiple things can weigh us down and make us want to cry out in defeat..but know that your God and my God is so much stronger. Look to how vast the skies are and to know His love is that big. The mountains so high, that with faith of a mustard seed, can be moved. Nothing is too big for Him...nothing too hard.
There is a promise and reminder in Revelation of how big He is..how vast He is..
Look to that when you feel the water churning around you and the storms billowing. Look to the reminder that He has this! He has a plan! No matter what you face and no matter what you've done, God can conquer all. Just let go..let God..and know that you are growing ever more. Look to the lesson He is giving you..search for what He wants you to learn from this and how you can use it as a way to help someone else.
Do you think that Moses sat down and figured out the logistics of what God told him to do before he set out from Egypt? I doubt it. He had faith that God would take care of everything. Let us have courage, we share the very same God!
When The Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me, He said, " I am the Alpha and the Omega, the One who was and is and ever will be. I am the One who will come. I am the Almighty One."
We know that God is able to bring something good out of every circumstance, as long as we trust Him and remain true to the purpose for which He called us.
