We all have a journey to go through. In that journey, we have ups and downs. Throughout this journey there is one constant that never changes and that’s God. When we live and do for him, He notices it. The things that we’ve done for others He remembers. Because we’ve committed our lives to Him and because we are His, He takes care of us through our entire journey. Of course no one likes to go through but that is the time for you to really see how blessed and loved by God you really are. Let Him love on you when you’re up AND when you’re down. When it’s your time to go through a down season, just know it is NECESSARY! Every part of your journey matters.
Quick story that I heard from someone: A man was rebuilding the engine to his lawn mower, and when he finished, he had one small part left over, and he couldn’t remember where it went. He started the engine and it ran great, so he figured that the part was useless - until he tried to stop the lawn mower, and it wouldn’t stop!
The point that I’m making with this story is every yes and every no matters. Every breakup matters. Every single disappointing moment matters. The days without money matters. The job you loved and the one you hated matters. God takes every high and every low and throws it in one pot to make you just who you need to be. Trust your journey and let God continue to guide your path. Some days it may not feel good but it’s all necessary. There is an end goal. Please trust that everything is working out for your good! God has you in mind. He’s going to take good care of you and believe me when I say He knows what’s best for you. Everything single day is important for your life.
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
