Don’t give me that raised eyebrow....
I know what I’m saying.
Yes, I’m a Christian (I’ll die as one), I know I’m only expected to confess positive things, but, let’s face it, it can be hard sometimes....
I’m only human, FGS! I can get weary, cry till my tears gland have nothing left to offer me, scream to the rooftops until I can’t even hear my own voice, throw tantrums and ask lots of ‘why’.

We’ve all been there, except, some are a bit more intense than others.
If you’ve ever had to deal with disappointments, setbacks and failures or if you’ve ever asked ‘where’s God when it hurts’?, this isn’t far-fetched.

How do you explain it when it seems God is deliberately hurting you? You scale through one only to be broken by another. You begin to match your experiences with others, comparing yourself with those who you seem to have an edge over now doing all the ‘big’ stuffs and you assess again, but it still doesn't add up.

‘This is difficult’, we’ll sometimes say, ‘why do I have to go through this’? I guess they did say our mountains come custom made to suit our strength, abilities and the assignment God is preparing us for? What then happens when you seem to be getting crushed by the weight of your own mountain?

I don’t have answers yet, I hope I find it in the course of this journey when trusting seems difficult and giving up appears to be a better path.

Like the account of Jeremiah,

Jer.18.4 - And the vessel that he was making from clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he made it over, reworking it into another vessel as it seemed good to the potter to make it. [AMP]

The clay could sometimes get messy from the constant breaking and remoulding, but until the vessel is formed as he pleases, he stays on it. Till a masterpiece is made of it and he can place it on display, then, he’s not stopping until the process is over.

If Jesus could at a point wish He didn’t have to go through the cross, our concerns are justified. However, just like Him, let’s pull through and walk in the fulfilment of God’s will.

When tomorrow does come, I pray it finds us believing, yielding, trusting the plans of purposes of God, cos it’s really not an easy path.

Be encouraged to stay through the process, there’s a crown after the cross!

Thanks for reading!
