The Lord will never put too much on you than what you can bear. See it as an honor that he can trust you to handle whatever it is that you’re going through. Your process and challenge was not meant to drain you mentally, emotionally, spiritually or physically. Allow him to replenish and restore your strength, for the joy of the LORD shall be your strength.
Every time when you feel that it’s too much, just remember it will work for your good. It may feel unfair but what he wants to see is: Are you going to stand on his word or are you going to stand on your feelings and what it looks like? Even if it has been years, he wants to see what direction you will go towards.
Will you stick with him although in the natural it appears like you are you are coming in last place? Will you leave and turn away because you want convenience and is willing to compromise to get what you want instead of waiting? Don’t allow frustration to overtake you. Your pain and suffering has purpose and if you want the LORD’s best, then you must be willing to go through what you have to in order to receive it. THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS!
Shortcuts lead to demise, destruction and to a dead-end. Short-term benefits will not be worth it in the long run. Remember that you can handle this. Just breathe. It will get better along the way. Your patience, obedience and faithfulness will pay off at the end. The best is still on the way. You will come out on the top. The best is in-store for you. You have not seen your best life yet. You can handle this!
It is written in 1 Corinthians 10:13: “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it”.
In order to grow, it is vital have rain as much as sun however, sometimes the rain can be overbearing and overwhelming. We can also receive more rain than sun in our life which means that we can be over drained, drowned and washed out. Too much excessive rain can cause plants to decay, wilt and perish *(Grant, n.d.)*. The rain in our lives can symbolize unfortunate events, depression and pain. It is important to remember that trouble does not last always. Happiness is a choice. The joy of the Lord shall be our strength. Psalms 30:5 says “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”.
Whatever your going through, hold on to his word. Allow the rain to push you to be stronger. Allow the Lord to be your safety float in the midst of the storms and floods. Rain pours on the just and the unjust. Don’t allow the pressures of the rain to choke out your hope, joy, peace and happiness. Don’t allow the rain to close up your heart to stop you from living and loving again. I pray that the rays of sunshine appears in the darkest depths of your mind, body and soul. Better days are still coming and always remember the best is yet to come. Another day on earth is another chance to get it right. He has not given up on you nor should you give up on yourself. The trials and persecutions are only temporary. The rain shall have no reign over you. Again hold on to the foundation of his word which is sharper than a two-edge sword. He is the way, the truth and the life. He is also the light in a dark place.
Allow him to be the sunshine in the midst of your rain. The beauty, growth, strength and blossoming into a greater creation will be all worth it. What you waiting for? Today is a new day ♥
2 Samuel 23:4: “And [he shall be] as the light of the morning, [when] the sun riseth, [even] a morning without clouds; [as] the tender grass [springing] out of the earth by clear shining after rain”.
Matthew 5:45: “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust”.
