He’s right there waiting.

Today my heart is heavy for so many reasons. But I am not hopeless. I know that we are never sure of what we will go through in this life. I know that half the things I’ve faced I thought I never would be able to survive, but I did. And I know that I did because God is faithful. He doesn’t waste one minute of our lives. He takes it all, and finds some way to give us beauty in return for the ashes. He makes good come from bad. It doesn’t stop the suffering, the pain, the disappointment, the tears, the groaning, the discomfort, the grief. It doesn’t stop our lives from going up in flames. But it gives us hope that when it does, when we are left with ashes, He will make it good. I make mistakes. I don’t always listen to what He tells me to do. I get myself in messes. But He is faithful despite it all. He knows sometimes I run to the wrong things to ease the pain this life has brought me. But when I prove to myself again and again none of that works, I always go back to the arms of my Father. It’s the only safe place I have. It’s the only peace I get. It’s the only time I can rest. It’s the only place I get any clarity or make any sense of anything. It’s the only place I get answers, or comfort or unconditional love. I don’t care where I’ve been, what has happened to me, or what I’ve done, He is always waiting with arms wide open. He’s waiting for you too. ❤️

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:38-39 KJV
