This Too Shall Pass

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; 
And when you pass through the rivers,  they will not sweep over you. 
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; 
   the flames will not set you ablaze. 
For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior”

Isaiah 43: 2 – 3

 —————————————-

There was a familiar rush of anxiety that came over me today when I realized that the task at hand was more difficult than I imagined. What have I gotten myself into?

I’ve gone through innumerable obstacles in the past; some worse than others but, all of which… I overcame.

That last thought struck me.

Moved by the impact of that moment, I recalled all the struggles that caused me to feel so much worry. Apart from that, I remember realizing every single time how pointless all the worrying was.

When did God ever let me down?
Has he ever failed me?

Never.  

During those periods of stress and worry, He seems so absent. But, those are just opportunities for us to trust.

So no matter how difficult an obstacle may seem, be it a challenge too big or something too much to bear…
It will pass.

And only then will we see its purpose. : )

“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Philippians 4: 19 – 20
