“But, Look What God Is Doing”
I just left from seeing my counselor for like the 25th time throughout my painful journey. It’s such a blessing to be able to share your heartaches, struggles and fears without feeling any condemnation. Many times God has used this man to be His Still small voice of comfort and confirmation. Today God used him again to speak life into my heart and mind. However, the words I want soon forget were “But, look what God is doing.”
Look how God is showing His grace to you through other people. Look how God is using your pain to encourage others through their pain. Look how God is doing even more through your ministry when you’re doing much less. It’s just impossible to ignore all God is doing through your struggle. God’s got to have His hand in all this somehow.
Nothing he shared could I deny. There was just too much evidence to not see the hand of God. And, while that doesn’t change my present struggle God did once again rearrange my perspective. I needed to at least remember that what I’m going through purposeful pain. God is using it to rebuild me, build His church and encourage many others along this broken road. So, here I go again praying God continue to use this assigned struggle as a light to many for Your glory!
“As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” “It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him. We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work. But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.”
