There are so many troubling events in the world today. From wars and fighting in the streets to police shootings and the deterioration of race relations. One must wonder, "How will God's commission ever be realized in today's world?" What are your thoughts?
What does one do when faced with trying times? What do you do when the weight of the world seems to rest upon your shoulders and there is none that will help you? When you face problems, do you wonder what you might have done to deserve such things?
I have faced and currently am facing some trying times. It sometimes feels like I'm between a rock and a hard place. It can be very discouraging to find yourself here but one thing I have learned in my life, when there seems to be no one to turn to, I can always turn to the Lord.
When the heaviness of life becomes too much for me, I cast all my cares upon the Lord because He cares for me (I Peter 5:7). I know that I am never alone as long as the Lord is with me.
You see, the Lord did not promise that with salvation comes a trouble free life. In fact, He tells us in II Timothy 3:12, that all who chose to live Godly, shall suffer persecution. So, in every situation, in every trial, I rejoice because the enemy does not attack the un-godly. His attacks are left for those following Jesus Christ.
Trials and test and trying times are not meant to weaken us. Rather, they meant to strengthen our relationship. They are intended to strengthen our resolve to follow the Lord. Trust God, He can do all things but fail!!
I Love You Lord!!
My Beloved. I have searched a lifetime to find You. I have spent countless hours yearning to be near You; to hear Your voice. I have cried out in the midnight hour and prayed for Your arrival. Yet, each day passes brings a deeper longing to my heart. I await You.
My Beloved. The reason, I was created. The reason my heart skips a beat and my breath is taken away. My inspiration and the reason I can continue to face each day. My destiny's end and beginning again. I await You.
My Beloved. I am imprisoned in this place and unable to move. Stagnated and stalmated here where I am. Unable to move to the left or right. Unable to move ahead or turn back. Encased in this place with no doors. I await you.
Beloved, only You can free me. Only You can access this place I find myself. I live for the day where there are no boundaries. I pray for the day where there are no limitations; where the dark days have past and the sun shines again. My hope is for what tomorrow brings.
My Beloved. I await You.
