We have all at times thrown tantrums. Gone all crazy over stuff!
I have thrown tantrums way too many times. No count of that.
But do you realize how we do it before thinking things through?
Oh, when I meant I have thrown tantrums, it’s at Jesus. I get really frustrated, and I start complaining, murmuring, tossing over things and just playing the confused child.
I have been at places in my life where I felt, that was not where
I wanted to be, at that moment. I wanted to be in a place I felt good about, where I thought I was of more use , so I tell Jesus and when things don’t seem to be changing, I question even His love for me, which is ridiculously silly. I start reminding Him of How much he says in His word He is a good Father, and am like in my mind “then please act like you truly are a good father, coz am really desperate right now,” ( I think it but I never say it only coz it’s kinda rude-yea right!!!! )
But when I look back at those moments, something so incredible was happening even when I could totally not see it. And when the aha moment happens, I feel really awful at how badly I acted toward the only One who truly loves me unconditionally.
There are always things at each season God is working out; and especially those moments where we feel stuck. Look at them deeply and you will see. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you what is really happening and you will find out that there are life characters, and foundations that would otherwise never have been established were it not for those moments.
It will always take us looking to Jesus and asking Him to show us things as He sees them.
When it seems to be going downhill, when life does not make sense, when we feel that we are in a dark pit, a wilderness and a valley, He still is there, so much there. Your name is graven on His hand so how can He ever forget you.
Trust that when He said not to worry about anything, but to pray about everything, He meant it (Philippians 4:6)
In everything we need to carelessly trust God. He always knows what He is doing, and remember this -our ways are not His ways. Let us learn to cast all our cares and burdens to Him, He truly cares. (1 Peter 4:6) and then trust that he has heard. Having Faith that He does what He says in His Word.
Now, I looked up the word cast and this is what I got: Throw (something) forcefully in a specified direction. So please throw it all to Him forcefully.
There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still….
