There was a time in my life when it seemed nothing was going right for me or working in my favor. My days were dark and I couldn't see a happy ending in sight. As I sit here typing and reflect on that time it seems like it was forever. Truthfully, it only lasted for a season. That season was dependent upon how long it took me to get the spiritual lesson God was teaching. #schoolisinsession
I am not suggesting I was being punished. I do know that there were ungodly things in my life that was and would prevent me from reaping Kingdom benefits. I would not have been able to live a blessed life, accomplish goals I'd set or see the manifestation of Christ's promises for my son and I if had held on to the identity and character that wasn't a reflection of a Godly woman.
That time was so dark, gloomy and depressing! The valley so low I couldn't see the mountaintop I once believed I would stand upon waving a flag of success!! But I survived, came out better, humbled, tougher in my faith walk and you will too and that person you are praying for. #exhale There wasn't a person around who could change my world during that difficult time. It was my Job experience to strengthen my relationship with our loving heavenly father. It did! #celebrationtime
Whatever place you or someone you know may find themselves today, I encourage you to keep moving. The Bible says in Psalm 34:18 God is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. You will look back, lift your hands and think with tears of joy streaming down your face how grateful you are that the struggle is over. Later down the road as you encourage someone else, you'll recognize you were once in the same place and the lessons learned will be shared.
Keep on walking....
In His love!
