I’ve asked for ‘adventures’ from God, and though this time has been unbelievably challenging and stretching, exhausting and causing me anxiety, breaking me down to such an unfamiliar fragile state, is this an ‘adventure’ He has brought me to?
He wants me to be in profound community with Him, resting in confidence in His power and love, and to live in the security of His character.
I might be jobless, single, and struggling to make ends meet, but that doesn’t mean I am any less than them and my life any less worthy. It simply means God has a different direction He wants to take me.
If only I change my perspective to learn from the bitter, cherish the sweet, and appreciate the peculiar blend the two make.
Struggling is a part of life. It’s a part of change. It’s a part of growth.
