When will this season end?
When will we stop struggling?
When will the breakthrough come?
When will my joy be restored?
When life is hard, I sometimes question God. I am learning that it’s okay to ask why. He already knows what is in my heart anyways. When we toss and turn and struggle to stay full of faith in a season of dry and hard, we wrestle with the truth that reminds us that God is good and that the sun will rise again. I am learning to see His goodness amidst the rubble. I am learning to expect Him to show up in the middle of my mess. I’m still there, right in the center of it. No breakthrough yet, but I choose to believe it’s on the horizon. It has to be.
And my heart in this season of why’s returns to the truth over and over again. And I lean in and I hear Him whisper:
When have I ever left you alone?
When have I not provided for your every need?
When did I not provide light in your times of darkness?
When did I not remind you that you are loved, fully and completely?
I can feel myself sink back into His arms, as He holds me close and reminds me that He is here.
[Tweet “When life is hard, Jesus will always remind us of His faithfulness through His Word.”]
And He is always faithful. Each and every time.
