I sit here listening to music and smiling. A real, genuine smile that I couldn’t hide if I tried. Sometimes life has to take you through twist and turns to get you where you need to be. All of the tears and struggles, they are simply tilling the ground and preparing the soil for the growth that is going to come from it all. It’s not an easy process, but you are being refined, shaped, and molded for something bigger. All you have to do is stay the course. However, any detours only delay the inevitable (they don’t end the dream). If God has promised something over your life He is faithful to see it through. Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”.
I’ve had a lot of tears lately as the refining process shifted out roots within me that were not of God. Many tears as people exit my circle, but God held me close through the process. The town donkeys dropped by today and that just made my heart smile. I was reminded I’m not as alone on the journey as I think. My Poppa will never leave me, the Holy Spirit comforts me, and the blood of Jesus sustains me. Whomever exits my circle simply wasn’t mine to keep, they were seasonal. But as people exit, God moves others in that will give me the support on this journey I need. My Father’s love knows no bounds, I just have to give way to the process and trust Him. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
