My letter from God
If you follow me you know that I am brutally honest. I have written in the past about going through some rough patches about my faith and the fact that I question God, asking him, why God why?
I do that a lot?
Yes I have been known to cry out "Haven't I been through enough pain?" I question why is it that people who do the most unkind things get blessed? Yet when you're trying to do your best and living in God's word, you get dropped kicked yet again? Why? I ask.
Yes, I am human and even though I preach inspirational things every day, life gets to me but then God gives you signs to keep you going. I remember years ago when I was on the phone with my friend crying about what was happening in my life.
I was in the middle of a nasty divorce, I was scared of doing it on my own and my faith was wavering. As I was talking to her I went to the mailbox and there was a letter, I don't know who it's from so I opened it up and it's from my church, The Faith Center and what did the letter say?
"Why do you doubt God's word? Has he not promised you? He is not a man, he will fulfill his promises, for he has greater plans for you than you could ever dream for yourself "
I started crying and my friend asked me what happened, through the tears I said "I just got a letter from God"
Yes, just when my heart was breaking and I was questioning why, that's when God sent me yet another sign. This was truly a letter from God that I needed to let me know he was there for me.
Later on that evening I went to church, as I needed to feel part of a loving community. The pastor's words were about the power of prayer, how prayer changes things and that this is your season, this was the same lesson as in the letter. See God knows I am hard headed and I need more than one message and yes, did I cry again, right there in church. These were tears of joy not desperation, they were tears of belief that even though I didn't deserve it, even though I doubted, God was still showing me that I am in his grace.
It was then that I realized that I have nothing to worry about, what is going to be, is going to be. I realized though it might look like others have blessings, that God will be judge and jury on his time. My job is not to try to understand God's reason or timing, it is just to have faith. I need to keep on my path and know that God is listening and to know when the time is just right that he will reveal his plan for me.
So today my friends, my message is for you to look for the signs, because trust and believe, he will give you all kinds of signs, many signs if you're hard headed like me. He will let you know that he is there for you, that he is listening even when you stop talking, even when you lose your faith. I know how you are feeling but I am here to tell you, don't give up hope, have faith in God and know that all things are possible. Know that he is always here even in your doubt, in your fears and in your time of need, when you don't think it can possibly happen, he will send a sign to let you know, he is there and he is listening.
"Be the change you want to see"
