Why do we go through so much pain? Why does God allow us to go through so much on this side of Heaven. Why does He let our hearts get broken time after time? Sometimes it can seem so unfair.
For me, it is so hard for me to see people I care about go through so much. I can feel people's pain, I can feel the discouragement and dispair. I do not know how to describe it. I go to my prayer closet but sometimes if I am honest I don't leave everything there. I worry and I ponder with so many questions as to WHY things have happened.
When my heart is broken I choose to feel it. I don't cover it up by getting myself distracted, for me I know its time to talk to God about it. I question Him and I know He is ok with all of my questions. He isn't like a parent who says "no more!" ; He doesn't get fed up with me. He understands me as His daughter. He made me this way. I am a deep thinker and I care and feel things so deeply.
It is hard to trust but it is not impossible. After all, worrying adds nothing to us. It is better to leave it all before God and know he will work it all out someway. The bible says he is close to the broken hearted and he binds up their wounds. I know he can do that for us all today. He is a faithful Father who loves us and knows what we need.
Proverbs 3:4-5 Explained...
"To trust in the Lord with all our heart, we must wholly rely upon God’s promises, wisdom, power, and love to help us in every circumstance. Human understanding is subject to error. God, on the other hand, sees and understands all. He is the One we can lean on and trust. We should trust the Lord with all our heart because human understanding is tainted by sin, limited wisdom, impulsive assumptions, and faulty emotions. We are not always right."
If you are going through something believe me that Jesus sees you and your pain. He came to die for us so that we would be redeemed from this broken world. So all of this chaos would not suffocate us to no end.The destruction that comes from just living on this earth full of sin, anguish and despair is so unpleasant. It wasn't meant to be like this. Hope has come, His name is Jesus..... To the ones who believe in Jesus we know this is not the end....
18 Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. 19 For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. 20 Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, 21 the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. 22 For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.
I encourage you today just as I am encouraging myself. Run to Jesus, share your thoughts, pain and hurts with Him. Not only can he handle it but he will give you Hope for this life here on earth. NOTHING IS WASTED and He will use all things for His glory in the end. Until he comes we wait expectantly with groaning. Come Lord, Come.
