For I consider the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that is to be real to us. Romans 8:18 KJV
Recently, I have been struggling with being discontent and really not satisfied of where I am in my journey. There have been a lot of opportunities that have passed me by–mission trips that I planned to take, but they didn’t work out, a team that I didn’t make, and more.
I grew deeply discouraged and I let it take over me. Those thoughts led to a really bad night. I wept for a long time. Then I prayed a simple prayer, “God, please help me. Please just take this away from me. I can’t deal with this pain and suffering anymore. Please help my heart.”
I read this verse then I started naming all the things that Jesus said about me. It began to heal my heart. These things I have spoken to you so that in me you may have peace. The world you will have tribulation, but take courage I have overcome the world. John 16:33 KJV
How blessed am I to have a God who pours His mercy out over me every single morning and He never tires of me. He delights in healing my soul. He delights in taking care of me.
Whatever you are going through right now, give it to God because His yoke is easy and His burden is light. He loves to take care of you just because He loves you. There’s no other reason. He sent his son to die for us just because He loves us. His love is simple. As soon as you realize that, you will never be the same. He loves you and He wants you to glorify Him. Because when you are living in His will, that is where you find your true joy.
