Tonight, I’m learning that my circumstances should not and cannot change my relationship with Jesus or my happiness. Jesus is bigger.
Today, things are just not seeming to go my way. I’m completely confused about something, I’m pretty sure I failed my test, had no idea what was going on in lab, didn’t get to go to church, and didn’t get hired for the job I wanted. In the midst of struggles though, I find myself remembering that God told us that we would go through trials, whether they are small or large, we will go through them. He didn’t say it would be easy, but he said it would be worth it. Lord, allow me to see the positives in everything and to obedient to you and your will for me. Allow me to reach for you, in the midst of trials, and to remember that you are always worth it. He says to us, “I am the Lord your God” and I want to rest in that tonight. That the Lord of the stinking universe is my father! That he loves me more than anyone ever could. And that he knows exactly how things will turn out, regardless of how I am completely confused. “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see” Please Jesus, let me rest in you tonight.
