12.4.2020 – “How am I gonna get through this…?”

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of something you never thought you’d be going through?

Never saw it coming…

It’s what “2020” has been for many of us.

We’re living in a time where there is a tremendous need for strength and courage to “keep on keeping on.”

Challenging situations, unexpected circumstances, interesting hardships, heavy decisions, pain, loss, fears…

Struggles and situations you never thought you’d be dealing with in your life.

But Your Heavenly Father did…

He saw,

He knew it was coming.

He knew you would have to face it.

And He planned/plans on seeing you through.

And whether you’re able to realize it or not, as His child,

He’s already put in you, the way He’ll see you through.

Because Christ lives in you, and He empowers you.

Doesn’t matter what you’re facing.

Doesn’t matter how things are looking…

Doesn’t matter where it seems things are going…

And even if you haven’t been able to see it yet,

Even if you haven’t been able to realize it yet,

Even if you’re not able to think it in your mind just yet—whether you think you’re going to be “able” to endure, to get through, to wait in the midst of uncertainty…or not.

“Am I going to make it through this in one piece?”

One day, you’ll look back and say…

“Wow, God…. look at what I came through, look at how hard it was, look at how I didn’t think I could take another step…

…and here I am now,

And I’m okay. I’m more than okay…

Lord, You carried me through, just when I thought I couldn’t walk anymore.”

When we’re “in the middle of it all”—

in the middle of the hardship,

in the middle of the struggle,

in the middle of the uncertainty,

in the middle of the waiting,

when the healing hasn’t happened yet,

when the relationship is still in a rocky place…

we can know…

that we are right smack “in the middle” of Him getting us through. ?☀️?

“God! I don’t think I can do this!”

He says, “Yes, you can!”

“God, I don’t know what I am going to do if I have to keep facing this thing…”

He says, “You’re going to keep taking it one day at a time, with Me, and I will help you to endure. I will see you through. I already see it from the other side! And I have given you VICTORY!”

When we find ourselves “in the middle”…. we are “in the middle” of a relationship with our Heavenly Father that is being experienced—we’re getting to live it out.

And as we find ourselves in the middle of a beautiful story unfolding— our relationship with Him is flourishing as we learn to trust Him to see us through.

Thank You, Father. ?

I trust You.
