It is so hard to see the bigger picture. It is impossible to understand why we have to hurt. Why people come into our lives and out of them. It has been quite a week around these here parts. It's been a week full of fear and anxiety, exercises in obedience despite discomfort, heartache, overwhelming joy and blessings. My head is spinning. I'd be lying if I didn't admit that staying in bed for a couple days didn't sounds mighty fine at this moment.
But I won't do that. I won't lay down. I will keep on trucking. I will continue to give God every day of my life, no matter how hard some of those days might be. I will make that choice because I am His warrior. In Him, I find the strength to carry on.
I will do this because of the promise He made.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
I am called according to His purpose and he will make all things right. I will walk by faith and not by sight. No matter what the cost. Amen.
