-Have you ever had a time when your life seemed to be at a stand still? You were forced to be still due to a health issue, the lost of a job, a personal tragedy or because your life just seemed out of sorts and you didn’t know where to turn? Have you wondered how to handle it and used your best efforts to rectify the situation?
Have you sent out countless resumes, called all of your friends and asked them to keep an eye out for a position that fits your qualifications, and gone on interview after interview only to not receive an offer?
Have you struggled to figure out where you fit in or why you were put on this earth? Let depression keep you down after receiving a life changing diagnosis? Or had your world turned upside down by the realization that you’ve lost someone, and that you will not see, talk to, or touch them again in this life?
These and other situations are things that most of us have to go through. There is a reason for life’s challenges and tragedies. We may not know the reason initially, but if we take the time to look back on that situation, and allow ourselves to put God in it we will see that the Lord allowed those things to happen for a very specific reason.
Every time that you feel like your life is off course, that your plans have been derailed or that your life is a mess consider this alternative. Perhaps the Lord is working behind the scene to keep you safe, to protect you, to lead you toward immeasurable joy, to give you the desires of your heart, to teach you a life lesson, or to increase your faith which He knows that you will need as you go through this journey that we call life.
Sometimes we just need to be still, have faith, and let the Lord move. He already knows every step that we will take, every misstep that we will make, and every victory that we will attain. So be still and remind yourself that He is God alone.
