when you lose faith //

We don’t always know why things go the way they do. We don’t always know why God allows things to happen. People always say “trust God”. I think it’s easier said than done. It’s not easy to trust Him when we do not know what the outcome will be, or what the purpose is. When pain comes to us, that’s all we can think about. Thinking about faith is in the background. Why are we that way?

I think our human nature doesn’t always want to think positively when all we can see is the storm. We have doubts about things we cannot control. Right when something out of our control happens, we start to worry and our faith loses its strength. But there is one thing that I have realized. One thing (or one who) that we can trust in our anxieties, in our doubts, in our pain, etc..

Jesus.

“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.”

Isaiah 40:31

He is the One that has it all under control. It is not easy to understand what the purpose is for our storms, but He sees the bigger picture. We don’t. He has the power to bring us peace in the midst of the crazy waves that are crashing before us. Pray for it! Pain is a part of life. So is growth. I don’t think you can have growth without pain. Trusting in God will take you way beyond what you can see. There will never be a hair that falls off your head without a purpose. Meaning that everything happens for a reason. We may not understand it now, but someday we will (John 13:7). We cannot control everything that happens, but I promise you this, we can trust the One who can.

“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord.
‘They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.'”

Jeremiah 29:11


Thank you for reading. I pray that this encourages you to trust in God with all things. He loves you! It may sometimes not seem like it but there is always something in His plan for your good. Be blessed!
