THIS TOO SHALL PASS ~
It felt like the earth quakes was never going to end but it did. It took days for the aftershocks but it did end. Life pressed forward and I saw how this too shall pass. Living in a earth quake part of the world, you just know it can happen everyday of life but we must press forward after any hard thing that happens.
Philippians 3:14 King James Version (KJV)
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus
1 John 4:4 New International Version (NIV)
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
THIS TOO SHALL PASS ~
Look back at something in your life that was just hard. Down the road of time it becomes easier to deal with in life. Maybe your situation never goes away but you learn how to deal with it. Dealing with it is important and knowing that God is able. I am look at a situation in my life and I can see how God is moving things forward. In that forward it is slow and takes patiences everyday of life. I don't want to explain more than that but I see how God moves us forward. In that forward, I truly can count blessings and praise him in all seasons of life.
Suddenly becomes real to me. I see how suddenly God has change things in life. Maybe my life isn't what I thought it was in many ways, but other ways it's far greater than I ever imagined. I have blessings beyond words and I see how people trust me. Trusting someone is huge in my life. I have had broken trust with friends and it is hard to deal with, but I have trusted real friends. I know who I can trust in life. Just like Jesus, I know I can trust him and he is always there.
Jesus had to leave earth to prepare a place for our after this earth. I was talking last night in our growth group about how some people want to know whys of life. The whys aren't as important today to me. I just want to know how to press through somethings and trust that someday I will reach heaven. In that moment, I don't know want to know why things happen anymore, but rejoice that I made it to heaven. There are somethings in life we will never know the why of and we must press forward.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends. I don't know what you face today, but face it knowing God is able. Face it knowing God has brought you a long way in this life and count some blessings of that. Keep believing Big! Purpose this a good day.
