Lately it seems I have been feeling more and more "frazzled" not only in the past few days (although it does seem to have been worse) but in the past few months. Sometimes God brings situations into our lives that we would rather not deal with. Sometimes their just inconvenient things, sometimes their down right difficult/life changing things. When these things go on for months at a time, it can start to make us feel "caught" or "stuck". It's hard to see how this is God's plan and how God has our best interest in mind. You cry out to God, bare your heart and soul to Him and feel like He's not answering. The truth is, He is listening and answering....maybe His answer is "just wait, child, when the time is right I will let it all be fulfilled" or maybe later we will find that His answer is "No, child this is not the plan I have for you, I have SO much more in store". While in this present time of "struggling" for me, I'm still holding on to the hope that God is simply telling me to wait, I have to trust in Him no matter what the answer may end up being. I'm still learning this lesson, but I do feel like some days I'm making strides in the right direction while other days, I feel as if I've taken 4 steps back. Just remember (as I have to) when you are facing trials of any sort that God is ALWAYS there. HE know what He is doing and HE IS IN CONTROL!!!
I ran across this verse on a blog somewhere and it has been a Great encouragement to me,
"Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually."
I Chronicles 16:11
Isn't that beautiful?! To me that means that we need to CONSTANTLY see God and the strength that only HE can provide to get through ANY situation, no matter how big or small. We need to see His presence continually because we know that God is always there with us even though we can't see Him, He is there traveling this road right along side us! What a beautiful picture that paints...we can have God's strength and presence with us no matter what we are up against! There is no need to think we have to be "super mom" and do it all on our own, there is no need to feel as if you have to face sickness alone there is no need to feel like you are in this (what ever THIS is for you) by yourself.
Seek God and no matter how hard what you are facing is, He will carry you through and most likely some day you will look back and see God's fingerprints ALL over this time in your life.
