That "Too" Shall Pass

Today, I found inspiration...one I'd been looking for all week. Today, as I sat in the third pew at Renewal Christian Center and as the Preacher's voice bounced off the walls of the sanctuary, my heart got what it needed most....Inspiration from the my very own life atlas...the Bible.

See the thing about inspiration is that it needs to be renewed. Life's unanswered questions and wrinkled plans sometimes threatens even the strongest of hearts...the tornado we call existence often creates a dent only renewed inspiration can repair....We need to be reminded that our internal tornadoes will be quietened....that our unanswered questions will be answered....that our life plan will be executed...how it will be done and who exactly would be doing it.

Today I was reminded that one of the few constants in the world is struggle.  The truth is that life is filled with trouble, affliction and unanswered questions. You or someone you know is always going through a challenege, coming out of one or about to enter one....its the truth about life...its a cycle. I'd call it sad if there wasn't hope. But there is.

God didn't promise that life on earth would be easy or void of challenges but He did promise to see us through each wrinkle of life....He promised a life filled with deliverances....because He overcame the world, He'd see us through any kind of trouble we face...no matter how huge it seemed. With faith comes deliverance...its what He promised and its what He will do. 
I have a few unanswered questions in my life...and I'm sure you do too....yes YOU who is reading this post :-). Accordingly, once in a while, we all need to be reminded that God is attentive to all our cries...the tears you shed when you're alone in the car, the thoughts that go through your mind late at night as you battle with dreamland and/or the worries/concerns that each dawn brings with you. He has heard them all....He knows what you want...Fear not, He'll deliver you. 
Today I was reminded that God will never leave the faithful hanging. What's more is that I learned allover again that God will use every pain I feel as a catalyst to take me to the next level. So will He do you. 
Genesis 30 tells the story of Rachel who had been frustrated and ashamed that she hadn't bore any children for her husband Jacob. This caused a lot of chaos in her home considering that Jacob's other wife Leah already had seven children for Jacob. Can you imagine how Rachel felt? After all the chaos, verse 22 reads, "Then God remembered Rachel; He listened to her and opened her womb"..... 

No matter what you're going through, hang in there...
No matter what aspect of your life you're still waiting for direction on, hold on....
No matter what turning-table you find yourself in, seek peace
God will remember you, 
He will listen to you and 
He will open doors for you.
Amen.
Stay Inspired....
