As I sit here, I’m asking myself why. Why are there things in life that we must go through? Things that hurt us….physically, mentally, and emotionally. Why me or why now? I’m angry, scared, and a whole bunch of different emotions that I don’t even know how to describe. Then I remember—my God is Greater! I remember that He has the whole world in his hands, and that He knew me—and what I will go through in life—before I was even born. In that, I find comfort and peace. I know that God will never let anything bad come to me, and that He will never give me more than what I can handle.
So yes, I am scared. Scared out of my mind. But I know everything will be okay, if I just continue to trust in my Maker.
I encourage you to embrace your fears and to trust in the Lord…He will bring you through. This can be hard, especially when we feel we’ve lost all control over our lives. Let Jesus take the wheel. Trust that He will never lead you in the wrong direction. Believe that He is always with you, especially during the times you feel the most alone. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9).
Always remember, Our God Is Greater than whatever we go through in life, and because He lives in us, We are greater too!
