Have you ever wondered why you are going through a lot of things in your life right now? Have you ever tried asking God why you need to go through a lot of pain? Have you ever thought of going to a place where nobody knows you and starting life all over again?
Life can give us so many surprises. So many ups and downs. So many unexpected moments that sometimes leave us empty and lost. It is full of events that will either build or break us. Moments that will make us happy or sad.
But despite this changing world, we need to consider that things happen for a reason. Maybe you are facing pain right now because you need to gain strength for the coming days in your life.
Maybe you are in a situation where you don’t know what to do next because you need to learn how to trust even in moments when you don’t see what’s ahead of you.
Maybe life became so difficult for you because you need to learn the things which you need to do in order for you to be able to handle tomorrow’s blessings.
And maybe you are currently doing your best right now, but still, nothing has happened because you need to learn the value of hard work.
God is not blind.
He knows everything you’ve been through. He knows that you are struggling. He knows all your problems. It’s just that God values your character more than your success. He wants to build the foundation first before giving you the greatest desire of your heart. For you to be able to enjoy every blessing to your heart’s content.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28)
God is working in your life. And even if everything doesn’t make sense right now, one day, you will be amazed by how He will perfectly complete all the pieces together. You will be surprised by how He will turn your mourning into dancing and your sadness into gladness.
And most of all, you will be overwhelmed the moment you realize that God didn’t waste every single tear you shed. Take heart! Everything you’ve been through will eventually complete you in God’s perfect timing.
