Not What You Expected

This is what I know about you: your life is different than you thought it would be. It’s harder than you expected. It’s complicated in ways you could have never imagined. Your life is filled with broken people, challenging circumstances, and difficult decisions. This is what I know about God: He isn’t running from your mess, He meets you in the middle of it. He does not ask you to deny reality, or pretend that everything is alright when it isn’t, He invites you to ask Him into it.

Paul wrote to the Jesus followers in Rome, “We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.”
Romans 5:3-4 NLT

God will use the very thing that you didn’t expect to create a strength within you that you didn’t know was possible.

  1. So true but it’s so hard to see when it’s so painful and you’re numb. Hindsight is so refreshing to see how He was there and still is.
