Too often we spend all of our time seeking God for answers to our problems when what we should be doing is just seeking God. Sometimes God pushes us to our limits. It’s because he has greater faith in us than we have in ourselves. No matter what you are going through remember God is there fighting the battle with you, every step of the way. Let God take your pain and turn it into something great. Put your energy towards bettering your life and starting something new. God allows certain things to happen for a reason. Circumstances will either direct you, correct you, or perfect you. There is no greater feeling than knowing that Jesus has got my back. He knows my name. He knows my every thought. He sees each tear that falls And hears me when I call. I can’t. You can’t. We can’t. But GOD can so let go and let GOD!
