Just a week ago I posted this on my blog. When I think about God’s faithfulness, I can tell you I have 100% seen it all throughout my life. I cannot tell you how faithful God has been to me during tough seasons – there have been a lot of storms! Even in the darkest of storms, when I felt like I couldn’t get through it – God was there and, you guessed it, He was faithful.
I can remember some very specific, very hard and honestly, devasting times in my life! I’ve been through seasons where the next breath seemed impossible. But God never let go of me. He never gave up on me, even when I would try to run away! Faithful. Loving. Always full of Grace.
Little did I know that just four days after my first 2022 post, one of the greatest dads, husbands, principals, and childhood friends I know would pass away unexpectedly at the age of 54. WOW! It is one thing to write about God’s faithfulness and goodness in the good times, but then to be (yet again) faced with one of those devastating moments. It’s hard. But remember what I wrote last time? God’s plans are better than mine and…He is faithful.
This is what I love about God, His faithfulness, and just that He gives us the gift of FAITH! You really cannot comprehend it. You cannot put it in words the feeling of complete and utter sorrow sometimes, yet you feel peace. That peace that surpasses all understanding. You cry, you hurt, you even question what God is doing. Yet you are reminded of so many times that you were in the middle of a storm and He stood right beside you. Right in the thick of it.
I pray today, as I know many of you are grieving, hurting, going through the toughest season of your life, that you will be reminded that you are not alone! God is faithful. He loves you! And you can rest in His arms knowing that He is right there with you.
