As I look back on my life, I remember the many times, when the painful moments of my yesterdays would make me feel trapped in a world of my own; but then I discovered this powerful verse in Acts 17:27, which I now hold close to my heart.
As I read this verse, while taking in every word that stood before me, I began to see that these difficult times in my life were only being allowed for a reason…and one of those reasons; was that I may seek God even more in my life.
When I look back on the difficult times of the past…I see moments that had at one time placed me in a very dark tunnel…one that definitely didn’t even have a glimpse of light to lead me on my way; but as I allowed the circumstances of the past to nudge me through the darkness; that is when I continued to feel my way to God…and do you know what I discovered? I discovered that He really wasn’t that far from me…for it was the circumstance that was allowing me to feel distant from God…and even life itself.
You know…I think that we all face moments such as these…moments when a circumstance seems to place us in a world of our own…to the place where we begin to feel trapped within these moments; but the word of encouragement that I would like to leave with you today; is to not fight the circumstance; but rather, let God use it in the way He intended for it to be used. In other words…don’t look directly into the face of your problems and focus on the very worst; but rather, seek out the purpose for which God has allowed these moments to enter your life…and from there, let them nudge you through the darkness of despair…and don’t give up; but rather, continue to feel your way to God…and you know what…He will meet you there, just like He did for me.
Have a very blessed day…and ALWAYS know that God is there for you!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
