Sweet friends, I have been there. It felt like my world was crumbling, and I was amid the rumble. I didn’t know what to do. I struggled to breathe. I struggled to sleep. I even struggled to stay upright because I just wanted to curl into a ball and cry—all the time. I felt no one understood my pain, but I was wrong. God understood every tear.
Regardless of what we are going through, God is the answer. He is the only One who can give us understanding and the type of comfort we need. During the most challenging times of my life, God has been there. When I cried out and asked Him to help me, He did.
Sometimes, the first step is making my way back to Him. When I went through my trial, at first, I felt alone. Honestly, I couldn’t feel God like I wanted to. I searched for Him, and it was as if I couldn’t find Him. HOWEVER, when I humbled my heart and poured it all out to Him, I felt Him.
During that time, I certainly felt like I had more than I could handle. Every night, I cried on my porch at seven o’clock. And every night, God met me there. He guided me on what I needed to do and gave me the strength to do it. It was a long process, but God held my hand through it all.
I knew I couldn’t handle it alone, so my heart continuously sought the Lord. Sometimes, He gave me scriptures to comfort me. Other times, He used songs. God gave me what I needed when I needed it. And during the worst time of my life, He proved His love to me. Even when I questioned Him and was mad at Him, He still helped me through it all.
He will help you as well! Seek Him continuously, sweet friends. Let Him help you to grow through the trial you are going through.
2 Peter 3:18 (KJV)
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
