Dear God, I am tired...
Sometime life is exhausting. I mean straight up exhausting, like the Houston sun that beams on the back of my neck on a bright, summer day. Life has thrown so many curve balls and sometimes I question you if you really love me because I don't believe that you would put me through such hurt like this. Why is all of this happening? Why, why, WHY?!
Sister, I want to encourage you today. I don't know who you are but I know your pain trust me. There was a time where I believed in God but my life continued to spiral from one thing to another over and over again. I could never get a break and I had so many sleepless nights wondering when the pain would be over. Nevertheless, I am glad that I continued to press forward. I continued to believe and guess what? I reaped the benefits of the little faith that I did have.
I am reminded of the story of the women who was bleeding for twelve years found in book of Matthew, Mark, Luke of the Bible. This women suffered a great deal over the twelve years. Regardless of her pain, hurt and sufferings, she pressed her way through the crowd of people that was not only crowding around Jesus but they were pressing themselves against him. Each and every one of them wanted to follow Jesus and I am sure many of them had needs that they desired to be healed by Jesus. But how could the women touch Jesus with all of the commotion going on around her and all the people thonged around Jesus? She pressed, she believed and she was desperate to be healed. Are you?
I was once like this women. Desperate for a change. Desperate for a healing of my heart and it was not until I pressed forward in the crowd of doubt, uncertainty, and lack of understanding that I began to understand, I began to change, and I began to heal from the inside out.
I encourage you to press sis and believe that truly everything is working for your good in Jesus Name, Amen!
