A Long Week
This past week has been extremely tough. Every year right before my birthday, all hell and high-water begins to come. The devil is so predictable at this point, that his little tricks do not even bother me anymore.
The enemies job is to get us off of our game. You give him an inch of doubt, and next thing you know he has you questioning who God really is. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). God has a different plan. He wants to give you hope and a future ( Jeremiah 29:11). He wants us to have an abundant life. Every time the enemy threw something at me, I️ took it and thanked God. I️ asked, “Lord, what do you want me to learn from this?” I thanked Him for another opportunity to grow. Nothing happens without God allowing it, and I️ was reminded by that when He worked out every situation that came my way, but in each situation I was required to have patience. That is something that I am diligently working on. God gave me a test, but He also helped provide a solution.
With this being said, take those tough situations and grow from them. Try to ascertain what God wants from you. Take every experience and allow God to teach you something in those dark moments. God is very strategic and He will make a way out of no way. Be encouraged and know that God only wants what is best for you!
