You’ve examined your situation, weighed the odds and done the math in your head; life is tough and relief seems impossible. You see it in the pitiful looks and pats on the back you get from well-meaning friends and now you’ve come to believe it; what you’ve prayed and believed for just might never happen.
How often have you thought, this is it; this is what my life will be—I’ll never have a baby, or, I’ll never get that job, find love, get healed or figure out what to do with my life?
It seems daunting and almost impossible to be positive in the midst of pain but these moments are the stuff of life. Hard as they seem, these are the times when the ‘impossible’ happens; when God’s light pierces the darkness of our lives and our testimony becomes sure as the dawn.
Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble…” It’s a given. If you’ve lived long enough you most certainly have experienced that. The part that gets difficult to believe and practice, however, is “take heart (cheer up, be courageous) for I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Jesus indeed has overcome the world, but we will only experience it for ourselves when we believe His words and laugh despite the pain, keep trudging on in spite of opposition and praise Him in the midst of our fiercest storms.
The past few years of my life have been riddled with disappointments, dashed hopes and difficult moments. Everything that could go wrong seemed to have gone wrong all at the same time and my life looked like the place where storms go to happen. The thing is, like everyone else I have experienced difficult times before, but never like this. Truth be told, I got to the end of myself. I reached the point where I knew my strength had failed and I had nowhere to go but to God; no other rumored solution to try but to fully and totally turn to my father in heaven.
