A lot can happen in two years, that’s for sure. So much has changed since the last time I published a new post. Life is like that, isn’t it? Change is always constant. Sometimes change can be painful too.
Moving forward after difficult changes in life isn’t going to be easy. No one promised it would be. However, there is a promise out there for you, and for me, that can help us realize that even through the pain of life’s circumstances we are not alone. I think that may be the best part of moving forward – knowing that Someone walks those difficult times with us.
We don’t always feel the Presence of God. More often than not, life can be filled with so much hurt and loneliness and questioning. We won’t always know the way to go when we are trying to move forward. I know that when I am unsure and wondering what is going on in my life or what am I supposed to be doing, I let it discourage me to the point that I just feel like giving up. But deep down, giving up isn’t really what I want to do.
What if, in the questioning and uncertainties of our lives, God could enable us to become more dependent on Him? Are the questions we are left with in the midst of brokenness questions that God can use to help us grow deeper into His strength?
When we get to a point where we just can’t see the point, then we are left with nothing… BUT GOD. Whether we feel Him or not, no matter what, He never lets us go. When we can no longer keep going, when we cannot hang on a second longer, He will never let go of us.
That’s why, for me, I think the best part of moving forward is trusting that Jesus is there each step of the way. It’s been a difficult road, and I have lost my way more than once. I will not always go the right direction. That’s just me. I’m not perfect, yet when I fall apart I can trust the One who is Perfect.
Jesus is our Light, and He is the Light that I pray we will be able to see even when we feel surrounded by darkness on our journey towards moving forward. You are loved, and love is always with you.
