Choose to surrender

God knows your suffering.  He’s been there. He is there.

Be awed by the cross and the fact that the creator of heaven and earth could have done supernatural things to make the cup pass,  but He didn’t.

Why?

Because He could see the other side. He could see how the shedding of His blood would bring us LIFE.

I’ve experienced many hardships; no one is promised a pain free life. But I’ve learned to look for the blessings through the pain; they are always there.

The valleys are great teachers. We acquire gifts, grow and see the world in new ways. Without them, we can never reach our uncharted mountaintop.

These quotes inspire me in the hard times. (the authors I do not know)

“The will of God will never takes you where the Grace of GOD will not protect you.” And “When God takes something from your grasp, he’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better”

Trials  give us a chance to lean on GOD and discover that He is in fact, the lavisher of love.

Looking back over my tumultuous journey, I  realize that Gods ways can often be terrifying, even heartbreaking. But they are also transforming.

I’m forever changed, molded with Gods loving touch through my trials and triumphs into the daughter He created me to be. I am still a work in progress, as we all are. No matter the course,  I choose to joyfully trust God.

Are you in a valley? If you are be encouraged. A great adventure with your heavenly father awaits.

The time to live is NOW. The time to get up and run, to seek and find, to be transformed, to set your eyes on Jesus and choose life is NOW. If you feel weak,  hold on to the promise in Isaiah 40:31 which states “But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; They will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Whatever you face, embrace it. Choose to surrender and rejoice in your journey.  Know that God, your greatest champion, is forging the way for you to reach your own unique and glorious mountaintop.
