I think sometimes as humans when we have not so great things happen to us, it becomes our excuse to just shut down completely. We start to question God and we start to feel sorry for ourselves. We feel like we are being targeted. But that is not the case at all.
As I have said before this world will never be perfect so neither will every situation we go through.
We can’t let that take us away from God. We must try and understand through these times and pray that much harder for His wisdom.
So I am going to be honest with you guys right now. This is almost embarrassing to me in a weird. way. But one thing I am learning is it’s okay. It’s okay to be honest in all aspects of life, because its real and raw emotions.
So, I am getting ready to get married in 4 months now and I am realizing who my true friends are through this process. I had not 1, not 2, but 3 girls drop out of my wedding party. I was so distraught and hurt. I didn’t understand why this was happening 4 months from my wedding.
I had such a negative outlook at first, but as I prayed and tried to understand I was realizing that God maybe was showing me something.
Something that may have been an even messier situation down the line, He was saving me from. Even though it didn’t make sense I had to just trust God could turn it around.
For that I am thankful and can tell you that I have learned so much. I am trying to bloom in every season, even the not so great ones.
BUT, once this happened I had no idea what I was going to do. I just trusted that things would work out.
Within the next week I got a message from an old high school friend that I haven’t seen or talked to in YEARS! We started talking about the position I was in and she was able to give me a brand new perspective AND a new idea to fix the issue I was in previously.
It was crazy how fast things ended up working out in the end.
When you keep yourself lined up with God, He will fight for you.
Sometimes God just has a strange way of showing us the more difficult things in life.
Through God’s words we gain an understanding that God is the one who gives the gift of knowledge- that is an understanding or awareness of something. The Lord however, grants knowledge to those who have an honest relationship with him.
Proverbs 18:15 The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out.
I love this verse so much. It’s basically saying that we must still seek Him and His wisdom through everything.
Having faith in God during difficult times can be incredibly hard. Excruciating. Even physically painful.
The good news is we can still take situations and turn them into learning experiences. (bloom where you are planted.)
Which means there is always a time to learn more about God even in our most excruciating times. For that I am always thankful. My life is far from perfect and I am trying to make sure that you guys know this as I write. I promise to be as raw and pure as I can be, because this is how life works. There’s good and bad days for everyone!
