“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.”
We should never be ashamed of finding ourselves exhausted and bone weary from the journey of life.
Instead, we should see it as an opportunity for God to take charge of our lives.
The nice thing about God is that He can spin any and every situation into something good, including those things we wish were different.
A good place to start is by accepting that where we are now is where He intends for us to be.
Then, we must trust that we will get through the today, and all our situations one step, one moment at a time…just by remaining attentive to Him, and by allowing Him guide us through the many choices along our pathway.
This is not as easy as it sounds…because our desire to live in His presence goes directly against the grain of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
And in fact much of our weariness results from our constant battle against these opponents.
However, we are on the path of His choosing, so we can’t give up!
I pray that we will continue to hope in Him, trust in Him and praise Him, because despite where we think we are He has already made us a beacon and a shining light, and will continue to pour His light upon us…amen!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
