Life is full of defining moments. One second can completely change your life in ways you never thought possible. These moments refine you; never again will you be exactly the same.
For better or for worse, the future awaits. Though your heart may stop, the clock cruelly keeps ticking by. Time mourns not the wounded soul. When heartbreak shakes you to the core, the only thing you seek is clarity. How could a God of love allow this to happen?
You know what they say – when it rains, it pours. Sometimes it flat out hurts. No matter how much it stings now, you are reminded that life goes on. In the middle of the darkest night, there is always hope.
Tragedy has a way of making you feel tiny. I guess you realize how little control you really have. Faith drives you to believe in something greater than yourself. As you draw near to the Savior of the world, he draws near to you… and that is the most incredible feeling one could ever know.
The more you encounter life’s struggles, the more you fall back into God’s loving arms. He’s always there to catch you, no matter what. The number of hearts affected by your faith in Him simply cannot be counted. In the midst of it all, you’re an example to people in ways you’ll never know.
So there it is. The struggle is not just about you after all, but those who learn from your walk. You don’t get there overnight, but over the course of time, God shows you how to be thankful for the deepest sorrows of your heart. Without the struggle, you wouldn’t be the person you are today. I suppose it is in these defining moments that you realize how weak you are and how strong He is.
