2.7.2021 – Enduring through the Hindrances

I’m realizing that…

Sometimes God allows “the hindrances” to remain,

for a little while.

Sometimes for what seems like a long while…

But He is still good.

He is still trustworthy. ?

And He is still working and creating and building and moving— even when it seems that nothing is changing for the better.

I think about His “behind the scenes” kind of work… in the “hidden” places….

I wonder if perhaps, His “hidden” and “unseen in the moment” kind of work is His best, most beautiful—

…most glorious kind of work.

Life is not promised to be easy,

or anywhere near perfect…

No matter how hard we attempt to chase it down,

No matter how hard we attempt to achieve it in our own strength,

in our own ways…

And when things are hard…

When things don’t seem to make sense in the moment, (or two)…

When the understanding hasn’t come yet…

When I can’t see the bigger picture…

I can know this, I can DWELL on THIS:

God is still God.

He is still GOOD.

He loves me beyond what I can comprehend.

And HE is STILL TRUSTWORTHY.

And when I’m in the middle of these kinds of “hindrances” or hardships,

He has this way of letting me know in the deepest places of my heart—

that He is creating something beautiful

and incredible

and miraculous

out of the very thing He’s taking me through.

A work that only He can do. ✨

Isn’t that wonderful? ?

In the midst of whatever it is that I’m facing, God… I’m watching and waiting and looking to You.

Because I don’t want to miss the beautiful thing that You plan to do. ?☀️

And You’ll take my life, and make it into the most beautiful song… if I allow You to—if I take my steps with You…

…and I plan on stepping right into it, with You, God.

“My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.“—Psalm 73:26

“Lord, so many times I fail; I fall into disgrace. But when I trust in you, I have a strong and glorious presence protecting and anointing me. Forever you’re all I need!“—Psalm 73:26 TPT

No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.”—1 Corinthians 2:9

Thank You, Father. ?
