January 21, 2021, God spoke and revealed to me that, a lot of people were experiencing some of their most tumultuous times, had grown weary, hopeless, and beyond tired of waiting on Him for change. Stunned, I had no clue what to do with the information, nor did I understand why God shared it with me, until I realized, that I was one of those people. When God commissioned me to write my bestselling book, Surviving the wait: How I learned to be still and wait on God, I was completely oblivious to the fact that He would use my hurt and pain, to help others heal, including myself. You’ve all heard of my struggles, whether past or present, but what you haven’t heard is sometimes, I struggle with believing God.
I’m struggling to believe “He’s working everything out for my good,” when my life is still in shambles. I’m struggling to believe “He will give me rest for my weariness,” because I’m beyond mentally and physically lethargic. Honestly, there are a lot of things I’m struggling to believe, starting with me writing this post. However, I try to be authentic and transparent as possible. Besides, I know I’m not the only one with these feelings, but probably the only one brave enough to admit it. I’ve been through and am currently going through a lot, but Psalms 71:20 reminds me that, no matter “my sufferings or hardships, God will restore me to life again, and bring me from the depths up.” Now that, I DO BELIEVE!
If life and it’s unfortunate circumstances has brought you to an all-time low, fear not, because you won’t be there for long. Soon you’ll rise, and God’s going to be the One to do it.
Until next time my NOTE takers!
