trust is so hard.
it’s probably one of the hardest things for me. not just to trust people, but to trust God.
lately i’ve been struggling with my health, and i have been asking a lot of questions along the lines of “why would God let this happen?” “what’s the point??” “why me?”
how stupid of me. he’s GOD!! his plan is absolutely perfect for my life. i might not like everything that he has planned for us, but we have got to remember that his plan is more than we can fathom. the God who sent his ONLY son to die a horrible death for us, and did we deserve it? no. so what we should really be saying when troubles come is THANKING him! i know i have such a hard time praising the Lord in every circumstance. i haven’t been through a lot of things adults or even other teens have been through, but i do know what hurt, pain, trials, and difficulties feel like. praise is not the first thing that comes to mind when trials come my way.
so today, i don’t know what you’re facing or going through, but i bring words of ENCOURAGEMENT because i KNOW how you feel. right now, i do not feel like praising the Lord, but i know it is what i’m called to do. life is so much better when we just obey his commands..like the song says, “i’ll praise him in this storm.” right?
we aren’t expected to be happy with the trials that come. we’re expected to be joyful and we are to cling to the truth we KNOW! God is in control, and knows exaxctly what is going to happen in our lives before we do. how awesome is that?? “your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” psalm 139:16
so, i’m striving everyday to live by this verse. the Lord knows exactly what’s going to happen tomorrow, next weekend, next year. why worry? why ask why?
