He gives us courage we could never even dream existed, just to stand when He asks us to.
God doesn’t use us because of how strong we are. He uses us because of how willing we are to meet Him where He is working.
There is great comfort in knowing my God wants me so close to Him. He isn't setting himself up somewhere, separated and away from me, to rule over me. He wants me so close that He can hold every beat of my heart with his love.
A Bigger Plan
God loves me enough to not always "come to my rescue" in my trials, but to walk me through them, so that He can build in me the strength that I need to fulfill the plan He has for me.
He Takes the Pain Away
Emotional pain is the heart's rejection of an undesired reality that one must face. The only salve for such deeply difficult hurt is the peace that only God can bring, as he moves you through the pain.
God, in His infinite mercy, will not only walk your journey with you, leading you, but he will leave His footprints in and on your life, to let you know He is still there, walking beside you in every peak and in every valley that you face.
He loves, because he loves. Not because of what we can do, have done or will do, or because of how "good" we are, but because we are his children....no other qualifications needed.
Each trial passed through is a reminder for those ahead, that He will take us through our darkest nights.
He always keeps us just enough dependent on Him that we realize how little we can do without Him.
Sometimes the Lord makes us learn in places of discomfort so that we won't stay still and refuse to move to the next place He has for us. Keep moving. He will take you through.
