Take a minute and breathe.
Think about how much God loves you, yes He really does!
Think about how much He cares for you with everything He has.
Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.
Life can be overwhelming with things happening in your life right, left and center.
But, just remember that in your state of dismay, God is still present with you.
Know that although you feel that God isn’t been fair on your case, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love or care for you.
He needs you in His kingdom. In fact, He has already prepared a place for your dwelling right beside Him.
Remember that although you may be in your season of trails, sorrow, failure or whatever it might be, God still Loves you so much and He still put other things around you just to make that journey easier.
He keeps putting it there everywhere you go even though you may choose to ignore it and only face your situation.
But, when God choose You, He will stick with you through every battle and trails.
Yes, you had to face a life threatening sickness that doctors are still doubting whether you’ll make it or not.
Yes, you had to travel to another country all by yourself to an unknown place with no friends or family around.
And you felt that you were alone and had to figure things out by yourself.
Stop and Breathe.
Yes, you feel so lonely, cold, and depressed in a house full of people who love you dearly.
Yes, you feel like only you understand what is going on in your life and that everyone don’t understand you.
Yes, you had to take care of your children all by yourself with no help from anyone but just the faith that was passed on from your generation that you’re barely holding on to.
Yes, you were once strong but now you feel like you’re carrying the weight of your sins around you and you’ve lost all faith and hope in God.
Yes, the ones you truly love so dearly and so deeply are the ones who constantly throw arrows at you with a smile on their faces.
Yes, you’ve been going through self-harm as a gateway to escape what life has placed in front of you.
Yes, life is exhausting.
Yes, life can be extremely overwhelming
Yes, it can appear to be full of darkness and all doors appear to be shut tight and you’re screaming at it to let you out.
Yes, life can allow depression to limit you and limit who you truly are.
But, the funny thing about life is that billions of people have it and only one man created it and gave it to each person.
God gave you life knowing very well that there will be trails and sorrows attached with it.
But, He trusted you with that type and kind of life that He gave you and said ‘this is the life I have given you, the better version of this same life is in you.
But. to bring it out you need my ‘Word’.
The Word will pull it out inside of you. It will bring hope and joy to the hidden wounds you thought can never be healed.
Ah, you see, God gave us a life and attached these troubles with it, to prove to us that we are just like Him.
And the moment we start living and speaking these words we’ll begin to see the power we have in Christ.
Let me simplify this a little bit, with every situation, there is a way out.
Even though you are in this particular situation it doesn’t mean you should limit yourself to that situation.
God will still provide things around you as your hidden place of ‘stress free’, from that situation.
Let me use myself as an example. I had to move to a county (state) I just felt I shouldn’t be in.
The work just wasn’t for me and I kept praying for a better one.
Some days I felt sad and depress, asking God when He will intervene.
At some point I was telling God that I just can’t do this anymore that I want out ASAP.
But, because God still wanted me to see the beauty of the other things around me, He opened my mind and eyes to my surroundings.
With that, I joined a bible class which I have been wanting to do for a long time but never had a way to do it. Lucky for me that same county (state) where I felt I wasn’t supposed to be in gave me that opportunity. Even in the county (state) I was before, I wouldn’t have been able to do that.
Apart from joining a bible class, I learned how to swim. A goal I had been aiming for far too long and within three months of me been there I was able to do this.
You get what I mean…
Those things made my waiting journey a bit easier and if you look outside your surroundings, breathe you’ll see the little joy that God has in place for you to make your waiting and trail period a bit easier.
And of course a daily dose of God’s word will go far into the future for you and fight battles you never thought you were in before.
So, in whatever is going on in your life right now. Breathe and let God be God over all your situations and battles. He has overcome all situation and can do it again in your life. If only you’ll allow Him…..
