Sometimes life can be so draining that it will cause you to lose your energy to keep going. Some of the things we have to go through can be life altering. Life has a way of changing who we are, our personalities, our character, our beliefs, and stance on a lot of issues. So many of us I'm afraid allow it to change us for the worse and I don’t believe life is suppose to do that. It should refine us, perfect us and extract us until it brings out the best in us but it should not destroy us. God perfects His children; He loves us to much to leave us the way are. So he takes us through a process of becoming who He created us to be.(Genesis 1:26)
We often seem to lose the power of who we are when we are faced with the trials of life. We tend let our issues get the best of us and over look that God can use our life problem to do a greater work in us. Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." The beauty and worth of gold isn't developed until it goes through the fire. When we are faced with difficult circumstances the faithful should be able to rejoice because we should know there is some good coming out of this. God allows us to go through to prove our worth and to develop the beauty of His character in us. (Romans 5:3-5) What we are currently dealing with is not to defeat us but there is a greater glory that is trying to being revealed in us. God gets to express his being and nature, character, power in our sufferings. The purpose of God is bigger than you and what you are going through.
If we fail to see life circumstances as part of the journey to a beautiful ending we will continue to get stuck in the middle. If we never learn the patience to go through the process of the work that God is producing in us we miss His glory being revealed in us. We mustn't lose sight of what’s ahead and allow our problems to change our position. We still rejoice knowing that trials are seasonal but the glory of God is eternal. This is not where it ends for you! Jeremiah 29:11 says, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." There is a beautiful ending to the chaos. What looks like disruption could actually be apart of your destiny? Keep striving towards the mark!
God is very intentional about the direction of your life don’t lose hope in what He's trying to do through you. It might look dysfunctional now but there is a something greater he is trying to complete through you. God is a Creator He will take your problems and design them for your purpose. God is an inventor He will cause purpose to exist out of your pain, He can make a way where there is a dead end. Trust God no matter what it looks like and allow His plan to unfold in your life.
You ever starting reading a book and because you didn’t like how the story started you never finished it! Don’t close the book before you get to the ending. Never judge your ending by how you begin; remember the ending of a matter is better than the beginning. If we don’t go through the process we will never get to the finished results. You have to view and live life through the lens of faith.(2 Corinthians 5:7) Rejoice knowing that God has a plan that go beyond our past, problems and pain and extends into a greater and glorious future.
Don't abandon the journey because the way has already been prepared for you get to your beautiful ending!
