I am so sorry I have been ghost the past couple of weeks. I just needed some time to re-center and get motivated again, but we’re back!! This week, I want to talk about how our story doesn’t end when disappointment comes. When we get let down, disappointed, and even brokenhearted, God is telling us that our story doesn’t end there. When we go through these storms, God is trying to grow something in us so that we can be stronger as a result of the storm.
For a real world example, I will use myself. I applied for this really good job that I would like. I had two solid interviews, and was prepping for my final interview in a couple days. I called the company to solidify my interview time, only to find out that the company was moving forward with another candidate. I was devastated. I was so confident that I would get this job, I almost felt like I didn’t know what to do from here.
BUT MY STORY DOESN’T END THERE!!!
Although I don’t have a miracle to speak of right now, my heart is blowing up on the inside. God has THE perfect plan for my life. I am reminded of the story of Peter walking on the water with Jesus, and how it took the storm for Peter to be apart of the miracle. Most times, we want the miracle, but hate the storm, and rightfully so. I want to submit this to whoever is reading this. We need to have that thought and faith that God is good even when our circumstances don’t produce what we think we deserve. God is the God of miracles, but even if He doesn’t bring what we imagine He should, that our faith is still strong in Jesus. I just want to say that Jesus is still moving mountains even when we are in the heaviness. I am reminded of the song “Yes I Will”. Some of the words are, “Yes I will lift You high in the lowest valley, yes I will bless Your name. Yes I will sing for joy when my heart is heavy, all my days, yes I will”. These words are fueling my faith to increase. God will not fail.
Even when the worst of storms come, we are still in the hands of a Mighty God. Rest in this. Just because a storm hits, there isn’t a period. There is a comma. Faith says that even though the end of the sentence isn’t written, I trust that the story isn’t over. If the story can continue from Jesus dying on the cross, then the story will continue for me to “see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living” (Psalm 27:13).
