11,486 steps to the top, the climb can be gruesome but the views at the top are so worth it! I think about this a lot as the daily “grind” of life isn’t filled with glorious views & scenic bypasses like the hike up was.
Talking with a friend the other day how little we TRULY know what’s going on behind the scenes in people’s lives while on the outside or from our ‘public profile’ life looks just grande as any!
Areas of my life & people I care deeply about are desperate to see healing, rescue and redemption! Scares from ER trips, hospitalized loved ones; trials & things too big for control; I wrestle with questions of “why do things have to be the way they are?”, “Why do our loved ones have to go through so much?!” And “why won’t God just fix it?!!” (Can you relate?!?)
BUT.... through it all; I KNOW My God is faithful!! I know he sees each & every heart & knows each & every question; even the doubting ones! Sometimes it feels like a never ending battle; but to HIM a God who cares and knows, it’s not. The rescue will come!
I FULLY believe if we handed up our doubt, our worries, our control, our futures, and loved ones futures we’d eventually taste his goodness & see promises fulfilled! We’d get to experience the good good father that he is; we just have to CHOOSE to trust even in the struggle of doubt or fear (& the struggle is real y’all😝). When we CHOOSE to hang on to HIM, the author and sustainer of life; we WILL SEE HIS RESCUE - it’s only a matter of time!
. “But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.” Ps 13:5 NLT
So on this day; KEEP GOING!!! MAY YOU Choose to surrender control and REST in a God who loves you & fights for you in the thickest of battles! May you know his nearness as you struggle with feeling alone. May you experience his PEACE that he’s truly working to heal, redeem, restore all the broken places - he knows your heart and he knows their trials. May you rest knowing their future is not up to you but he has a plan for even them!!! And may you feel his protection surround your mind & his Provision come at the perfect time... may you know HE IS FOR YOU! and the rescue WILL COME!
