Have you ever gotten to that point where everything looks black? Like life can't be good because all you find yourself in are messes on tops of messes?
And you know that you have a lot to be thankful for. You hear it in church all the time and you really do try to have a good attitude but you're tired and sad and life seems like it's not worth living because shame follows you around like a shadow.
Yeah, me too.
Too many times than I'd care to admit.
It's hard. Life. Love. Grace. The Christian life.
Was it supposed to come easy? Were you meant to face challenge after challenge? Would life be worth it if it was all easy?
Question after question comes to mind.
Last night I cried for probably 2 hours after facing the same obstacle I've faced for the past 4 years and it seems like I continue to hit the same wall every year.
But the light is coming.
I'm having trouble seeing the positive and choosing it but I'm thankful for the struggle. This struggle is showing me how helpless I am and how much I NEED God.
I was raised to be independent and rely on myself and now I'm seeing the struggles in that. I struggle to rely on God and not go my own way.
His grace is enough and He is enough even when the dark surrounds and even when you have to make the best out of what seems to be nothing, and you don't know how to believe that God has got you. He does have you though. Honest. It might not seem like it now, but please hold on, He will come.
