As some of you know, from reading my post titled Friends on 2/13, I have been struggling with why God moved us here. Life just has not been the same for me.
As I was still on my path of discouragment, in the shower the other day, I began crying. It was actually more like a sob. I questioned God, yet again. Why? Why did you bring me here? I just don't understand. Please hurry and tell me why. I have been waiting for so long.
He instantly took my thoughts to all the times I had gone through trials. All the times I didn't understand what was going on in my life. Looking back on them I was shown how He has always brought me through it to the other side. How, every time, my life has been made better by going through it.
I felt better, but I was still remembering all the heartache it took to get to that other side.
Tonight the Holy Spirit lead me to this verse..... God said to me in Joshua 1:9
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
I knew right then that He had answered my prayer, my plea.
I still may not know why He brought me here, but I do know that once again He will bring me to the other side.
Lord, thank you for showing me that your word is true, once again. Thank you for never leaving my side. My heart is at peace and I am full of hope because I know that you are with me wherever I go.
