How many times have you been in darkness without a plan to make it through it? Maybe you’ve faced challenges financially, with relationships or in health. In this situation, I was literally in the dark. But I realized that trusting God in the dark is very much like getting ready in the dark. You can’t see Him but you have to believe anyway.
As I fall asleep at night, as soon as I wake up in the morning, and countless times throughout the day, you and your current struggle have been on my mind. And personally, in my own current life trials, I can relate on so many levels, with so many areas of uncertainty. Questions that are hard to answer. The good news is, when life gets tough, there is an answer.
There are times when life doesn’t make sense, when pain is great. The most difficult of circumstances, cancer diagnosis, miscarriage, even the death of a loved one, require the greatest trust. They require that we trust God even when we don’t understand.
Boldly courageous…that was the phrase God gave me one year. It sounded exciting at the time…like a warrior princess. Adventurous and brave. Little did I know what it would entail. Or, what I would learn.
Have you ever asked the question, “Why pray?” You’re not alone! The enemy of our soul would like for us to think our prayers are futile and that it doesn’t make any difference if we pray because our whole lives are already planned out. But, our growth is dependent on prayer. It’s the fundamental means through which we relate to God.
