Let’s remind our hearts of this truth tonight…
God is good at being God.
We don’t have to try to fix what He hasn’t assigned us to fix. We don’t need to try to manipulate or control or spend all our emotions trying to figure it out.
We can let Him be God. And free ourselves from the impossible assignment of trying to keep it all together.
"In the secret place
I find you in your sweet embrace.
In the stillness Lord I'm waiting here to hear Your voice calling me, drawing me
Jesus You're all I need.
Just one moment here with You means more than anything to me"
For the highs and lows
and moments between,
mountains and valleys
and rivers and streams,
for where you are now
and where you will go,
For “I’ve always known,”
And “I told you so,"
For “nothing is happening,”
And “all has gone wrong,”
It is all in this journey
You'll learn to be strong.
And to get where you're headed,
You're right where you belong.
-Morgan Harper Nichols
There is a reason why you're here. There is always more to your story. You are only getting strong through every stage of your story. "Knowing what is right is like deep water in the heart; a wise person draws from the well within." - Proverbs 20:5
If you are waiting for things to happen, know that God is working here. If you happen to feel like you are standing in shadows of your own uncertainties and doubts, even here, Light is pouring in, again and again. Even here, rivers are being created, right here, in the middle of your wasteland. So take heart. He is working here. You may not be able to see it yet, but He is still making a way.
"One day you will wake up and all of the waiting will have made sense. You will realize that all of the prayers that seemed to be tangled in worries were actually wrapped tightly in God’s grace. You will realize that even though before, you were certain it was over, you were actually…okay, and everything that was supposed to happen, happened. Everyone you were supposed to meet, you met. Everything you were supposed to do, you did. Everywhere you were supposed to go, you went. You will begin to realize that after all this time, because of His love for you, you have always been right where you needed to be."
"Present is living with your feet firmly grounded in reality, pale and uncertain as it may seem. Present is choosing to believe that your own life is worth investing deeply in, instead of waiting for some rare miracle or fairytale. Present means we understand that the here and now is sacred, sacramental, threaded through with divinity even in its plainness. Especially in its plainness."
I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done. - Psalm 118:17
There is so much more to your story. Take heart. For the Storyteller is still writing. The things you’re going through right now may be a lot harder than you expected, and you may have to wait a little longer for some things than you anticipated, but you will only grow stronger here. You will only become more prepared as day by day, He strengthens you and brings you where you need to be. Even in heartbreak, even in loneliness, even when there are just too many things to do: He is guiding you here. High above your worries. High above your fears. Even in the middle of the darkest chapter, God is still writing your ever after and once day you will see how it all comes together
Morgan Harper Nichols
"If there has ever been a day where you were not sure how to talk out what you are feeling or who you could even talk to, perhaps that is precisely the moment God is calling you to talk to Him. Perhaps the moment of scrolling through the mental list of people whom we want talk to but can’t is exactly the moment we can talk to the Lord. Even if our firsts words are, “Lord, I am coming to you, but I do not know what to say,” we can find rest in the wonderful truth that by His Spirit, He is made known of our pain that we have yet to figure out how to put into words. And in the moment we began to realize just how intune He is to everything, from our unspoken words or our raging thoughts, the more we began to realize just how approachable His throne is, even in our worst condition."
Sometimes I feel we forget to be ourselves, we put on so many masks and forget to be the truest person we were born to be. Ladies out there I want to remind you that you are special, you are unique, you have a purpose. You are loved, known and accepted by the One that created you.
