As of late, I have realized that your life may never coiencide with anyone elses life around you. I have come to also realize that you must always keep your focus. You may never really understand and that is perfectly fine. There comes a time when you must praise your way through every situation, keep your strength and recognize your God, despite how hard things may be or feel!!!
We as humans will make many mistakes. We as humans will not understand what is going on.
That too is fine. All we have to do is Trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean NOT unto our own understandings. In all our ways acknowledge Him... & He shall direct our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).
God is not expecting us to understand why he may get us so close to a situation and then take us far away. He is not expecting for us to not wonder why He presents us with opportunities... Then with a snap of a finger, completely redirect our path. But... What he is expecting:
>Is for us to completely trust in Him.
>Is for us to set back and let God be God (He needs no help being God).
>Is for us to praise our way through every situation.
>Is for us to seek Him at all times.
>And then He wants us to show appreciation.
Now don't get me wrong... It is so hard to do this, and it is easier said then done.
But for God to see that we as humans are trying... He smiles upon that.
In God's word, He says; The LORD gives strength to his people. The LORD blesses his people with peace (Psalms 29:11). His word also says in Psalms 28:7; The LORD is my strength and my shield, my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.
So... Understand too that God owes you nothing... Yet we owe Him so much!
If you keep that in perspective you will notice that things will become more bearable.
