Few things can shake your foundation and change the course of your life like chronic pain, a life threatening diagnosis, a natural disaster, the death of a loved one, or the loss of a close relationship.
In the midst of these situations you may experience feelings of loneliness, sadness, hurt, frustration, confusion, and anger. If you are currently facing one of these situations you may be asking, “Why me?”, “Where do I go from here?” or “What’s next for my life?”
Many of us have asked the same questions. I surmise we will not find all the answers to our questions this side of heaven. While that can be disappointing, may I suggest another perspective?
Perhaps this can be your time to pivot. This can be a new beginning. This may not be the life you envisioned. God however, is not a bit surprised by your circumstances.
Rest confidently knowing that God is with you as you step out on faith and continue your journey on a new road.
For Meditation: “Those who trust in the Lord are as secure as Mount Zion; they will not be defeated but will endure forever. Just as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, both now and forever.”
May He perpetually wrap you in His arms.
