Y'all life is crazy. One minute your floating along all fine and dandy, and the next you can find yourself in the middle of some chaos you not only wasn't looking for but you definitely don't want! That's how this world works. The circumstances we are often thrown into can be earth-shattering, and really shake you up, but that's not the only thing that can shake you up.
What if you're on a path you recognize, you enjoy, you might even love. You have a plan in front of you and you're staying on track, but suddenly something happens. Maybe your actions or even your inaction cause it inadvertently, or maybe someone else is to blame. No matter the reason, you find yourself suddenly in unfamiliar and perhaps uncomfortable territory, so what do you do? What do YOU do?
This has happened to me more times than I'd care to say, and when the waters get rough, and you don't know where to turn, I sure hope you're turning to the only one who can straighten it all out for you. His name is Jesus.
If you're feeling lost, deserted, looking for answers and nowhere to turn to, girl, don't you know it's always been Him? It's always gonna be Him. He has all the answers; He is standing in the gap for you. When the whole world falls apart, and you can't get your footing. I'm talking about when you've been swept off your feet, but not in a good way, call His name. Weep at His feet, listen to His voice, let Him lead you, allow Him to comfort you and don't you dare look away. Don't look to the left or the right, but look straight on at Jesus and REMAIN in Him because that's what's gonna get you through as a victor on the other side of your problems. That's what's going to change everything for you in your circumstance.
John 15:7 tells us "If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you." This doesn't mean God is like our personal genie, granting us wishes, it means if you eat, breathe and sleep the word. If you love Jesus, you follow Him and you OBEY Him, when a time of crisis comes calling (and it will) He is going to be there to pull you out of the miry clay. He will not fail, He will not falter. No matter what you're going through, He already knows, He has all the answers and He cares for you.
Girls, I know I'm not giving you any new news when I tell you, life often does not go as planned, but when we find ourselves amid troubled waters, look up, reach for Him because He will be there to pull you out of that mess. Believe it, know it, own it, and live it. Jesus is life. If you don't realize that, pause and ponder all this universe, and know God, the creator, made it all, and He created you. He's there for you, night or day and He'll never leave your side.
"The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. " Deuteronomy 31:8
I encourage you today, if you're going through some stuff, keep on going, with Jesus. He's got you, and even when it doesn't go as planned, you're gonna make it through. Until tomorrow, have a wonderful Wednesday and be blessed.
