I am truly amazed at how God never gives up on us. Just when we think we are past our prime or our time has passed, He makes things new. The moments in our lives that sometimes can last years and years, that feel like a death in some way to a part or parts of ourselves is the doorway to a new beginning. If we keep reaching for Him and searching our hearts, He will keep making room in us for the new. The death and resurrection of Christ can happen through the changing seasons of our lives, if we let it.
And sometimes we just need to trust Him and let things die so they can be transformed. It is something that can be difficult to remember in the moment when it feels like our world is falling apart. But in the falling apart of things we hold onto too tightly and try to control, God takes over and makes something even more beautiful than we could possibly imagine. He is the ultimate Creator of our lives. Our God who made the sky, the sun and the moon creates our lives with that same kind of precision and artistry specific to how he has gifted us. It’s our job to never stop walking the journey. To listen. To trust. To heal. To pray without ceasing for God’s good works to be done in us for His glory. And to know God’s timing is perfect.
