“IF we choose to give up the illusion of control, surrendering to the inevitability of pain and trusting in God’s mercy in the midst of it, we will find ourselves able to trust the One who has complete sovereignty over the universe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ THROUGH this knowledge, we can rest assured that no lamenting season lasts forever, and no lamenting season is designed to take us out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SURRENDERING to the process and pathway of lament helps us see God clearly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The time came when I realized that to correct my false views of God, to truly see Him clearly, I would need to think back to those places where I first believed those lies.” Esther Fleece ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I find myself in a place where I’m not trusting God and wrestling why things are the way they are, I stop and ask myself what I’m believing. Is He a good Father? YES! Does He have a purpose for my life? YES! Does He love me? YES! Does He promise to work all things together for good to those who love Him? YES!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are in a difficult season right now, you are not alone. Please reach out to someone. If you know someone who is going through a difficult time right now, reach out to them!!! It only takes 7 seconds!!!! A simple text to let someone know that they are being thought of! #only7seconds

“Like a muscle that gains strength over repeated workouts, so our ability to turn from temptation grows stronger with repeated practice. In order to lift a heavy weight, a weightlifter starts with smaller weights and builds up strength over time. When we are faithful to God in smaller temptations, we build strength to face bigger ones. No one indulges an explosive fit of rage who has not first indulged a thousand smaller aggressions. If we habitually flee from the temptation to commit minor sins of anger and selfishness, we are less likely to fall for temptation to greater sins of anger and selfishness. If we habitually excuse smaller sins, we should not be surprised to find ourselves increasingly entangled in larger ones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jesus taught that those who are faithful in small things will be faithful in big things. (Luke 16:10) Behind every temptation, great or small, stands the faithfulness of God eager to provide a way of escape. When we answer His faithfulness with our faithfulness, temptation loses both its glitter and its brawn.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In His Image by Jen Wilkin
