A few weeks ago at church, our worship pastor said a very simple statement, but I couldn’t get it out of my mind. He said something to this effect, “The clouds cover the sun, but the sun is still there. And there are seasons of our life that can be covered in darkness, but the SON is still there.”
Wow, isn’t that true? Our lives are not always sunny. We have dark times, and during those times, it’s easy to feel like Jesus isn’t hearing us.
But He does hear us. Scripture reminds us, The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18)
Jesus knows our every hurt and our every pain. Have you ever hurt so bad, you felt you couldn’t face another day, or the pain was too great?
Have you cried until you felt you couldn’t cry anymore? All those tears are liquid prayers that flow right to the heart of God.
Remember, we can’t see the whole picture. Things are going on behind the scenes that we can’t comprehend on this side of heaven.
1 Corinthians 3:12 says, Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.
We only see a tiny part of what God is doing in our lives, and many times, it doesn’t make sense.
- Why did I lose someone I love?
- Why is my child suffering?
- Why am I having health issues?
- Why did they hurt me?
I love this quote by John Piper, Occasionally weep deeply over the life you hoped would be. Grieve the losses. Then wash your face. Trust God and embrace the life you have.
Today, ladies let’s stop limiting God! We can’t even imagine how much he wants to do in us and through. He is fighting for YOU!
Have a blessed day!
