In the Face of Adversity
Currently, I'm sitting in the library typing today's post because not one, not two but ALL THREE of the computers in the house are NOT working! What in the world! And oh, how about this: my phone has gone completely crazy too, just cutting off in the middle of my conversations. I'm like, what's going on here! In the midst of all the choas, I asked ok, Lord, what's up? What's about to happen?
In the midst of breakdowns, detours and mishaps, do we fall apart or do we seek solutions from God? Do we automatically go in the "Woe is me" zone or do we present our petitions unto God and leave them there? See, what I had to come to realize is that God knows EXACTLY what's going on with me. He even knows before I even experience it! So it's no surprise to Him. The thing is this: if God knows that I'm in it, He knows how I'll get out of it! Isn't that awesome! Why would He allows us to go through something without allowing us a way out?
So Lovies, if you're in the midst of foolishness right now, keep your head up! Yes, it gets frustrating. Yes, it gets annoying. And oh yes, it gets irritating. But hang on to this: "And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them" (Romans 8:28 NLT),
