So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are His lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose. Romans 8:28 TPT
Are you convinced? I mean, do you really believe that every detail of your life is continually woven together for good? The good things and the bad things? The ‘mistakes’ and the intentionals? Those times you were hurt? The times you were disappointed? When life blindsided you? Those things you can’t understand because you were believing for something different?
These last few years have made me ask myself every question listed above. Do I trust God with everything in my life? My answer after much thought is a resounding yes. Yes I trust Him with every detail of my life. The choices I’ve made haven’t always been the perfect choice from hindsight, but I can’t trust Him to weave them into something worthwhile.
If I’d never gone through what I have, I would not have a story to share. My life is richer for having placed my hand in His and allow Him to have a say in the things I do. I have sat in His presence so many times with questions I never got an answer for, but when I stopped asking why, I heard His instructions or felt His peace. I heard His whisper that everything was going to be alright.
Things don’t always go as you want it to go, but stop and thank Him for the process. Thank Him for the exercise of your faith, the experience of the trust that’s deepened. This walk with Him isn’t designed to be risk free, rather it’s full of twists and turns, ups and downs as well as scary moments. How else will He get our attention? How else will we run to Him?
Don’t let how you feel keep you from seeing the manifested miracle you’ve been promised. Remember there’s reasons for your seasons. Recognize which one you’re in and praise God in your process.
