There are great lessons to learn when we're in pain. But the best one is to learn that those who hurt today become better companions to those who will be hurting tomorrow.
Why do we drag our feet when we’re lonely and jump up and down, run like crazy when we’re happy? Shouldn’t we be doing the opposite?
When we don't understand anything, its God telling us "Don't try to understand! Trust me!" People will tell you all these ways and benefits, but is it really fitting to listen to what they say firsthand before talking to God and actually try and listen to Him? I'm not saying you should shut them out entirely because God can use anyone in revealing His will to us, point here is: Run to God first - before running to anyone else. To not pour your heart's concern to someone else if you've not yet laid down your concerns to God.
A breakup isn't necessarily a loss, for a heart found by grace.
The blessing is not to be sought for more than the giver, it’s always going to be as simple as that. How He provides is not to be overthought, what matters is that He will – and He does, every day.
"I will be glad and rejoice in Your love, for You saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul." - Psalm 31:5 NIV
Reflections of a forgetful follower
Never be silent in your driest, keep speaking, keep proclaiming, keep trusting. Because the fight you’re in is not a losing one.
The wait for the long desert-like silence may feel like a lifetime but there's much more to these tough times than what they appear to be.
We’ll try again, because even when people fail us, God never will. And loving imperfect people makes you want to hold on more tightly to the giver of love who won’t ever stop from loving you even when you don’t deserve the it.
My role in this new life is not for my plans to be accomplished, but to walk in His.
