You're not alone if that's you. Today is a hard day for me. And here are some things I am reminding myself of, about God, his purposes and his love for me:
(1) Jesus is on the throne: It feels like chaos. It feels like I'm falling apart and nothing works. But Jesus has risen from the dead, and is ruling over everything, which means this too is in his control. (Revelation 11:15)
(2) I can lose lots of things, but I can't lose God: Romans 8:35-39 assures me that even the depths of struggles and suffering can't separate from God's love in Christ and :Philippians 1:6 assures me that God will bring me to completion & he can do it with or without my strength. Phew.
(3) If I breathe, this too shall pass: Because of Jesus and his death and resurrection, and because I call Jesus my Lord & Saviour, this life will be the worst I'll ever have to endure. This madness and suffering has an end, and I will continue to breathe after it. (Revelation 21:1-5)
(4) I am a jar of clay with treasure: My brokenness displays more of God's power & that is glorious. (2 Corinthians 4:7-12, 12:7-10)
What encourages you to keep going, when the pits of darkness overwhelm you?
