“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
Are you struggling with a hard season in your life that just doesn’t go away? Are you praying the same prayer day in and day out, but you don’t see God answering it? Do you feel the tears running down your cheeks and are praying no one else sees them, but you can’t get them to stop? Are you so exhausted from the weight of this situation that you just don’t have the words to pray any more?
My friend, have the faith God is still carrying you through this hard season in your life. He has not abandoned or forsaken you. He is holding you in His arms while you lay there lifeless. Just lay your head on His shoulder and rest in His strength.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.” Romans 8:26 NIV
He is your Heavenily Father, He created you so He knows your every thought and your every fear. He hears your every prayer, whether spoken or whispered. He knows the pain of every tear and knows the words which are associated with every tear. He hears the words which are hidden in your heart.
My friend, I know how frustrating and discouraging this season is, but please don’t loose hope. Use the strength you have gained during your weakness to continue to walk this season in your life.
Remember these two facts: darkness is always followed by the sun or the light the following morning and the season of winter, no matter how long it may snow, is always followed by the warmth and beauty of the spring time flowers.
Hang in there Sweet Friend, you have this difficulty! You will rise above this hardship and will be made strong and beautiful when it is complete.
