You know those moments when you wonder where God went? Because if He was here, your life would look decidedly different than it does right now?
Last weekend, my husband and I made a decision regarding one of my daughters we’ve dreaded for over a year. As we followed through on it this weekend, it took everything we had to keep putting one foot in front of the other. I’m seeing the world through tears. I can’t focus on what’s in front of me. My body aches from the heartbreak.
What, exactly is this, God?
I know I’m where I’m supposed to be. I know I’m doing what I’m meant to do. And, as a good friend admitted to me today, “This sucks.”
Nobody ever said life would be easy. Nothing we value comes without a lot more work than we bargained for. So how do we stay the course in the seasons when we’d rather run back the other direction than continue down the path we know we must travel?
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. ~ Oscar Wilde
I overuse this quote, and I don’t care. Because it’s probably one of the most important any of us will ever read. You are unique. You matter. Your experience is priceless. Your view of life is valuable. Whatever you are facing, whatever causes you to doubt or stokes a life-long fear… you WILL make it. God took great care to design you specifically for your life. Today – right now – is possible not because of what’s going on around you but because of who He made you to be in the midst of it.
