Going Through...

Pain.  Heartache.  Depression.  Frustration.  Disillusionment.  Loneliness.

We all face these at some point in our lives.  Sometimes we face them all at once.

Going through...

Sometimes just going through the motions, until you can get to a better place.

Climbing out of the pit,  back into the sunshine.

Rising out of the valley, back to the top of the mountain.

Y'all.. this is real.  This is life.  Like the old song says, we really were never promised a "rose garden".

But it's all about perspective.

Over the last year of my life, I have learned to ask not "why", but "what"?

Not, "Why are you letting this happen, God"??

But, "What do you want me to learn from this, Lord"??

We go through stuff sometimes.  Hard stuff.  Stinky stuff.  Sticky stuff.

But truly, "that which does not kill us makes us stronger."

Not because we gain more of our own strength.  But because we receive more of His.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
(2 Corinthians 12:9-10)

 No, we aren't promised rose gardens, but we are promised grace.

What are you going through right now??

Just. Let. Go.

And watch God flex his muscles. ;-)
