I say to God:
“God, this isn’t making sense.
Why did you bring me here? I don’t see how you are using all of this.
This feels like a wasted season, it feels like I could be doing so much more.
Did you leave me?
Am I not listening to you well enough to know what to do next?
Is there really even a purpose for my life?
Do you care, God?
I feel alone, I feel empty, and I am questioning whether your promises are true.”
God says to me:
“Child, I know exactly what I’m doing.
This makes perfect sense to me.
I have a plan that is great and it involves you.
Even in the pain and heartache, I am at work, turning everything bad for your good.
For now, be patient, child.
There is no wasted season with me. I want to use you today and everyday.
It might not look how you thought it would, but my plan is never wrong.
Remember, what I’m doing is so much bigger than what you can see right now.
But have no doubt, I'm involved in every aspect of your life.
Whether you see me or not, I’m there.
I will never leave you or abandon you. I am your forever companion.
Open your eyes and heart to me, I’ll show you.
Don’t believe the lies.
I love you and I always will.”
Usually all it takes is for me to pause and listen to His truths to help bring peace into my heart and remind me what is true.
His love and His promises are what are always true.
