Lately I have been challenged both personally and in my career. I am feeling sort of stagnant and stale. Not a great place to be. Yesterday I was watching a documentary on foreign policies between the States and Egypt (and yes, I DID find it interesting...) and at one point, they showed a large view of the Sinai - very bleak and desert-like and all the same yellowy, sandy color. I saw that picture and thought to myself: that's how I've been feeling lately - colorless.
So, this morning I sat and spent time with God. I asked Him questions and He reaffirmed to me that with Him, ALL things are possible. With Him, things that look bleak can quickly turn around and become exciting and colorful.
So when I ask myself how certain things are going to happen, I know that I can't make them happen BUT GOD.... With everything in my life, I can say: I can't but God....
Can I encourage you today to remember that when things aren't going your way or you feel powerless, remember that maybe we can't change things but God.... He can and does. He loves us and has good things planned for us in every area of our lives.
If you're in a bleak place right now, hang in there! God is bigger than our biggest challenge.
