Ever had the wind knocked out of you? Or the rug pulled out from under your feet? I think we all know what it's like to be going through life nicely thinking that all is well.... then BAM! Suddenly the ground you've been walking on isn't as stable as you once thought... and now everything feels a bit, well, shaky.
Times like this are a great a reminder that God is our sure foundation - nothing else. While everything around us is constantly changing, we can rest in the knowledge that God isn't. And He won't. Many things are fleeting and fickle, "but there is not a more secure foundation to build my life upon than You." (Psalm 18:31).
When things don't make sense, when questions are left unanswered, we can either linger in defeat and sit with our eyes glued to the rear-view mirror, or we can focus on what God's unchanging word and what we can do from where we are right now.
Nothing is easy and sometimes, you just have to faith it til ya make it. If you allow yourself to push through difficult seasons, you'll discover that God has been there all along, working all things together for the good.
Hang in there! April showers bring may flowers.
