I was prompted to write while scrolling through social media this morning and reading yet another story of a sweet mother loosing her precious baby. A few weeks ago, the social community of The Influence Network rallied around a woman named Diana who was fighting to keep her precious son....she had already lost two other children. No words to speak. She lost her precious Kaden here on this earth, her third baby to go see Jesus before her. Now I scroll through another community of online bloggers and another child suddenly torn from her Mother's arms as a young newborn. This has happened to one of my best friends, we all held sweet Jeremy after his spirit had gone to be with Jesus, we came alongside our friend as she sat through the funeral, watched her experience even more pain trying to create their family after loosing sweet Jeremy, however, it was followed by a God ordained adoption and a healthy pregnancy. So many emotions to travel over the course of time and now we get to sit in the "happy ending" of it all. BUT what about the darkness, what about traveling the thick of it, what about the FEARS, what about the emotions that remain from all the hard stuff?
This morning in Daniel through She Reads Truth we discussed King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and Daniel's interpretation of it....the writer from She Reads Truth then asked......
"What mysteries are troubling you today? What images have frightened you to the core? What question would you give anything to have answered right now?
God may not spell out the answers for us the way He did for the king through Daniel that day, but He does invite us to seek Him. He does invite us to ask Him for wisdom and mercy, and He delights to give it. The answers may not look the way we’d hoped, or they may not be clear at all. The unsolvable may not be solved after one prayer or thousands. But we know the One who is the revealer of mysteries, and we know that He is for us. Nothing, not even the darkest mysteries, can separate us from His love." (excerpt from SheReadsTruth)
So what are we afraid of? What is troubling you today? What are you SO frightened about? Sweet sister, I know this feeling too. I can't write and give you any promises of what is going to be of your situation. We don't know how Diana or Katy's story will turn out...BUT we must choose to believe the above stated to be true about our GOD. Ephesians 1:9 (NASB) states " He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him" Did you notice the word KIND intention. The TRUTH is that God's will is according to his KIND intention. We MUST believe this to be true...... if not, aren't we claiming that we don't believe in God's ability, power, or sovereignty?
What is your fear? What are you hiding from? ...BELIEVE that his word is TRUE, that his intention is KIND. Lay your FEAR down that is your darkest nightmare and TRUST that GOD is who he says he is. We MUST believe that the light can overtake even THIS darkness.
Praying with you and for you today....
