Last night in some of my frustration I began to pray and seek God’s perspective. I really expected something to be different and it wasn’t.
My heart was heavy and I just kept praying until I heard God speak. Then I kept hearing God say ‘let perseverance finish. A new thing is coming’.
Ugh…. this is basically the same thing my therapist told me you didn’t get over this you got through it. – wait what God… say what therapist. Didn’t get over it going through it.
So many times we want to just get over it. Just be over the hurt, over the sinful nature and over the things that keep us from God.
Last night I finally understood I have to go through it. I have to because it brings me closer to God. Sometimes the perseverance is not about the situation it’s about the lesson God is teaching or the relationship God is bringing you into with Him.
Heavenly Father – Yahweh I am beyond grateful for the work that you are doing in my life. I have learned to lay down a lot of my flesh and pick up a lot of your spirit. I have been going through a storm that felt like it would never end.
Your mighty love continues to pick me up, correct me, encourage me, and build a stronger version of myself.
ABBA you have shown me who I was, who I am, and who I can become when I trust You alone. I am beyond grateful and will continue to strive to get through what You call me to get through and get over what ever you call me to get over.
I will let go of my own personal expectations and pick up Your expectations and take another step toward you.
Father I pray your mighty will in and around our lives as we step with perseverance, trust, wisdom, and love. I pray this in the mighty name of Jesus amen.
