Have you ever worked really hard for something only to have it not work out? Maybe you are in this position right now. I urge you, friend: don’t let bitterness take root; don’t let frustration deplete your joy.
We spend our lives longing for the next event…I want to live–really live–to please and honor God where I am now instead of constantly waiting for the next.
You are the only place I want to seek refuge. It is in Your heart that I will always feel at home.
Breathe in. The best is yet to come. Breathe out. You’ll come stronger out of this.
God, please take my problems and remind me that you are bigger than them. Please take my fears and show me there is nothing to worry about when you are by my side.
Whether it’s something small- like chatting with a neighbor- or something like this, God puts these calls on our hearts for a reason. It’s His way of saying, “I have something for you. Do you trust me?”
God didn’t make a mistake with you. He didn’t fail in His creation or forget to finish. He didn’t lose sight of your purpose and no matter how absent He feels, He didn’t (and won’t ever) leave your side.
Sometimes I think we underestimate just how powerful and effective even our little prayers are.
Lord, help me remember that our babies are little flowers and we are their gardeners. Help me to remember that we all have little weeds on us, yet you gently pluck them off and love us anyway.
What if every painful thing you faced was actually pushing you forward, pushing you down a different road, a better road, the road you’re meant to be on?
