I read these words today and they spoke to me...
"Go up through her vine rows and destroy, but make not a full end. Strip away her branches, for they are not the Lords". Jeremiah 5:10 ESV
Your experience is not about what's right in front of you.
There is always a purpose and it's always something more eternal.
Resisting only increases your discomfort, but it does not stop the process.
Face the happenings of life with faith that God is not only in control, but He is also good.
Faith gives you hope.
Lack of faith steals your hope and leaves you feeling like a victim.
Victims have a faith problem.
Buildings built on faulty foundations eventually come down.
Poorly organized spaces have to be redone.
If you want it to be better, then it will have to get worse.
Everything is ripped up and pulled out into the open.
With everything displaced, you can see things clearly.
If you feel displaced, ripped up and pulled out, don't be afraid.
This isn't for your end, this is for your new beginning.
