“God, when is this ‘thing’ going to get any easier?”
…This was the raw and honestly imperfect question on my heart this morning…
And I knew it wasn’t really the “proper” sort of question to ask, and I knew it wasn’t really the right question to ask, but He already knew my heart.
He already knew “this is the place where I am at”…
…and this is the part where I take myself, exactly where I’m at, and I run to my Heavenly Father,
…exactly where He is at. ?☀️
You know, we don’t have to always have the perfectly right kind of questions to ask Him.
Our questions can be unpolished, they can even be asked in a really imperfectly “human” kind of way…
But coming to Him, raw and honest… He loves that. He’s a Father who loves His children unconditionally.
He’s our Father that we can come to just as we are. He’s invited us through His son, Jesus. ☀️
So I came to Him this morning, with my incredibly ridiculous, incredibly imperfect and rather “fleshly” question this morning…
“God, will this get any easier???”
And do you know a thing I love so much about Him? He tells it to us straight, and in the most loving and beautiful, encouraging way.
And then it was like I heard Him say…
“It will be different, maybe not “easy“… but I will make a way for you.”
“….but live content with what you have, for you always have God’s presence. For hasn’t he promised you,
“I will never leave you alone, never! And I will not loosen my grip on your life!”
Yes, He has promised. ? ?☀️
But He never promised us that this life would ever be “easy” or that it would get to be “comfortable” or that it would be free of pain.
He promised to never leave us, nor forsake us. He promised to make a way for us, and that He would lead us into a life of victory.
We’re always going to have “that thing” in our lives that’s not easy to deal with, not easy to do, not easy to get through…. but we get to trust in the power and strength of God Almighty, Christ in us, the hope of glory. ✨
And what is that old saying? “The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory”
So then I said to Him…
“Father, You have promised to make a way for me, You have promised to be with me through the challenges, and the struggles, and the hard things that You lead me to that I don’t like to do…. all the things that I endure that don’t seem to be getting any ‘easier’ for me… how I feel so weak. How I feel as though I’m not getting anywhere sometimes… But You’ve promised to be in these places with me, and You will make a way for me…. because You are leading me, You are taking me on this journey, and I am trusting in You. You will make a way.”
Thank You, Heavenly Father. ?✨
