The Lord's purpose will prevail.
After a stressful and wearisome past few months, I have to admit that it's been tough. Life isn't easy. Losing a loved one is hard. Constant work can wear out the soul. Graduation and all the events surrounding it is quickly approaching. Life is flying by at a speed much faster than I've been able to process.
In the tough times, our faith is tested...and it's in these times that we so often fail the test and lose faith. Yet even when we stumble and fall, the Lord never fails to continue to show up and express His love all around us. His grace reaches out to us in our worst moments--for that's what grace is all about.
With everything overwhelming my heart and soul, it hasn't been easy. But it's in these times that I'm learning that the Lord is faithful. Even though many things still don't make sense, He is working behind the scenes, opening and closing the right doors, moving for a purpose that is far greater than I could ever imagine.
It amazes me how a single encounter can be used by God to bring dramatic change. He's been speaking through people, placing me with the right people at the right place at the right time. He's been opening doors and providing me with just what I need. He's been speaking to my heart. And it's a blessing when we respond to His call on our heart, for He uses our faithful response to further His purpose!
Life isn't easy.
But I'm learning step by step that God is faithful and that He's fulfilling His purpose.
He is good!
The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever.
Do not forsake the work of Your hands. Psalm 138:8
