Yes, the death was unexpected. Yes, the test was positive for cancer, lupus, MS, organ failure, etc. Yes, you were served with eviction papers. Yes, the business closed. Yes, you’re working more hours than you’ve had sleep, and check still isn’t enough. I can go on and on.
Yet, what I know for sure. God hasn’t forgotten you. God didn’t forsake you. God isn’t punishing you or your family. Truth is, to everything there is a season. And no matter if you’ve planned or not, the changing of seasons can still hurt.
Here’s what I need you to do … whatever season you’re in, don’t lose hope. No matter what you’re going through, don’t allow the anger of it to destroy your faith. When you’re ready, talk to God. Ask God for understanding. He’ll answer.
Help me to see you in my pain. While I’m going through this dark season of my life, don’t let me lose sight of you. Guard my eyes, ears, heart, and mind against the feelings of my flesh, and let me hope even when I don’t see or understand. God, guard my faith from me so that I don’t mess it up. Amen.
It won’t always be like this, and I’m praying. Until, during, and after your season changes, I’m praying your faith doesn’t fail. 💚
