The crazy part about life and where it takes you is quite unfathomable. You end up in places you never dreamed of, both good and bad. The past has a way of catching up to you, and good things come to those who wait. It’s a never-ending cycle of figuring it all out.
Sometimes, life leaves you in the pits. Sad, working hard, feeling like your efforts are meaningless. It leaves you broken and hurting, wishing there was an end to the pain and misery. Through the hardships it’s easy to give up and give in, do whats easiest for a quick fix, without taking heed to what the future might hold. Through those rough times is when our faith is tested. That is when everything we know, learned, heard, or taught through our life lessons is put to the test; the test of life. It’s hard! We’ve all been there, however, when you stay the course, navigate that road less traveled, you will prevail. You get the good that was waiting for you all long.
God knows who we are before we even find out who we are. How strong we are, how capable we are, how qualified we are. During the journey that life takes us on do we figure it all out. In a world where we constantly battle good versus evil, it is hard to stay in faith and uplifted when our flesh yearns fufilment, even if its temporary. God loves us so much, he knew we would need a guide. God saw our need for a savior, from the beginning of time, he knew our flesh was weak, and we would need something to believe in, a word that would hold true.
I’m sure when Jesus was sent to Earth and had to endure the trials, he was looking at his Daddy like Why? What is the reason?!
He had to endure those same temptations and go through those same trials of abandonment, loneliness, and betrayal. Yet, he knew that it was all for a reason, a greater good. He knew that his Father would have never commanded him to go through such a thing if it wasn’t for a grander purpose.
Though life is hard and the struggles of the world weigh down heavy on our shoudlers, focus on the words you know hold true. God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. Anything worth having takes hard work and persistence. This is not the end all be all, but this work you’re doing, these trails you’re enduring, are preparing you for something even greater.
