There is always a lesson.
In every heartache, in every delay, in every disappointment.
There is a lesson we can learn.
A lot of times we don’t want to learn that lesson. Or at least we want to say, “Show me something new God… but, just not this way.” We don’t want to admit that His Way of teaching us is the most perfect way… even when it hurts. even when it takes forever. even when it keeps us from the very thing we so desperately want.
Yeah. So I know all that yet I still find myself frustrated, depressed, and downright angry whenever God makes me learn a lesson His Way. So, I continue to turn to Him, like I did in my prayer on Friday.
At my wits end, I turn to Him.
And I as I start to try to see things His way, I start to see a semblance of the lesson He is working in me.
Maybe… maybe I did that first year of covenant for God to show me that He can do miracles in my life. For Him to show me that He cared. For Him to show me that His Ways are so much better than mine.
maybe He’s not done yet.
I mean, maybe He wants to show me even more through this struggle with food… through this addiction to the very thing that keeps me alive and yet is killing me at the same time. Maybe He wants me to see that He is powerful enough within me to conquer my issues with food. That He has the strength to enable me to overcome these issues and develop a healthy relationship with food.
Maybe… yeah, maybe God wants more for me than I even want for myself.
Maybe He’s just not done yet.
And if that’s the case, maybe I’m not done with me either.
