Unexpected Paths

I watched a periscope from my friend today where she shared about the unexpected outcome of some events in her life. She had been counting down to this point in the year and had an expectation of what it would look like when she got here. She was dissappointed, crushed even, with what she found.  I can relate.  I had such high hopes about this year.  Such an optimistic, expectation of what lied ahead. But instead of promotions and financial blessings and the next level of glory I desired, I became engaged in a battle I did not want to fight.

I have faught many battles in my faith and have had victory over them all (He always causes us to triumph). But never have I ever felt I was fighting alone. Until this season.

This season revealed some deeply hidden things. It exposed a lot of lies and false mindsets and beliefs. It showed me that God’s mercy has been the reason I have had the strengths that I have.  He showed me this by taking them away.

Life does not always turn out the way we plan or expect. When faced with this season there were many times I wondered if I would make it through the transition. Yes, I’ve seen His victory so many times but not with this particular situation. How could I receive deliverance if it has been an issue for this long? 

Finally before my final breakthrough I came to a point of believing that “Though He slay me yet I will trust Him”. No I did not believe He was slaying me but I did believe it was in His power to help me and He was choosing not to for His own purposes.

God has done too much in my life for me to leave Him but I see now He is the One keeping us together. It is His love, His strength, His grace. Not mine.

Here are some really good moments that have happened lately…

One thought on “Unexpected Paths

  1. As always, we must continue to trust in God as He trusts us to be the best that we can be and to be used by Him in our ordinary days in which He has given us to express ourselves and be the best that we can be to ourselves, to others and most of all to Him by continuing to learn about Him and what He has done for others, He will do for us all but He will not force himself on us and He has given us all families and friends to help make our walk better here on earth while we seek His face in our ordinary days and our special days of our own awakening to what is important. Some people are in our lives for a season, others always but God does not take away for keep on giving to us in the eyes of each of us when we wake up and see Him for what He has been to others we know and what we know for ourselves. Be humble and thankful in all things as all is from God. We may not always understand what is going on when it is happening but when we become awaken, we know better and do better. And thankful to God for not giving up on us!!!!
