Our emotions can overrule our thoughts.
Fears dictate we will be afraid for the rest of our life.
Anger boasts we will never forgive.
Depression deceives our heart.
We have hope in Christ.
And God says He knows the plans for us, we don’t.
So when we grip the wheel and yell at God for putting us in the wrong lane, maybe…just maybe we should pull over.
Switch seats. Let God be the driver, and follow the map He’s given us.
Darkness will have its hardship, but discerning why we are suffering in the midst of the storm, will not teach us anything, but despair. We learn through the process, every step, from beginning till end. That’s how we see God’s hand. Stop believing self-deceit and negativity, and begin to work on trusting in His truth.
Our journey has only begun, and we have yet to see His work entirely.
Take heart, my friend.
