“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” – Henry Ford
Honestly, I find myself asking what can I possibly write about this.
I have witnessed so many struggling in very difficult situations and battles recently.
I have heard those of long lasting faith, doubt whether God really does anything for us or not.
I am feeling responsibility for those I love who are suffering.
I am with them in their sense of overwhelming winds blowing them in every direction as they ….as they what? What do they do?
All I can say is this.
I have had many strong winds in my life. In these winds, came a man named Sharp Object came and cut me to the bone. Another beast, named Rock, crushed my heart. Fear and Helplessness poured out demeaning talk and insult…
But like the plane flying against the wind, I grew wings that held me strong. I soared to safe ground once more.
If you are facing these winds and hurtful, difficult, overwhelming circumstances know that you can.
Phil 4:13 I CAN do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
I CAN. You CAN.
I really appreciate the reality you touch on here in the blog! There are so many people who think that trials and challenges never cease. That those trials and challenges seem to be endless! God never hid the truth that trials and challenges are a part of this life. If anything, he demonstrates again and again that trials and challenges are a definite part of our lives. It helps when God places people in our midst that don’t judge us, but instead just walk alongside us. God does care what is going on in my life.
