Storms of life are inevitable and they come in diverse ways. Personally, I wish they aren’t part of the package so that life journey could just be series of predictable events. The reality however is that You have something to deal with, and I have my share to handle.
Everyday has it’s huddles which is why you have to learn to live one day at a time. No carry forwards if you want to enjoy your life as well as deal with issues that matter for the day.
The year is still young but it’s tempting to overburden yourself with unmet needs, desires, goals, and maybe some unanswered prayer request(s). It’s depressing to listen to someone’s testimony and kind of wonder if God is keeping it real with you. I hear people testify daily, see the joy, smiles, and hear laughter of happiness at the other side of the phone. This is another reality we face each day but it doesn’t mean we should worry, or cry, or even doubt God because things aren’t happening according to our schedules. It means that we can Trust God that He is able to sort us out when the time is right.
In Psalm 37:18-19 (NLT), the psalmist said “Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that last forever. They not be disgraced in hard time; even in famine they will have more than enough.”
God is taking care of you right now. One thing you may not know is that those who shared their testimonies with you also had to deal with the same emotions, thoughts, etc during their waiting period. I know dozens of people who complained, cried, doubted, didn’t want to pray again, etc during their waiting period but in the end, when their needs were met, they looked back and laughed.
Some day, not too far from now, you will also look back and say Thank You Lord. Your testimony will surpass anything you would ever imagine because your God is Big. In the meantime, don’t fret. Keep Asking, Keep Seeking, and Keep Knocking. When you take the first letter of Asking, Seeking, and Knocking, you get the word ASK. Therefore don’t STOP ASKING.
