Finding God's Light

Friday, April 19, 2019

Everything works out. Everything has a plan. Everything will be okay.
Because of God.
Ever had a horrible day? Maybe a horrible week, or year? Yeah we have all been there. Scared of the future. Worried nothing good is ever to come.
But the Bible never tells us to be worried or to be scared, it relentlessly reminds us to Trust God.
Jesus carried his own cross to his own crucifixion. Sometimes we have too have to carry our own burdens on our backs. But when the weight gets heavier and heavier, thats when we have turned our backs on the Lord, rather than looking to Him and having Him take them away.

I am constantly reminded of this message. I have days where life is hard or I feel lonelier than usual. Then I am reminded that I haven't prayed in a while or I haven't opened up my Bible, because when I do pray and when I do read the word it is as though nothing could harm me.
If you know me and my story, you'll know I was not raised in the Church, in fact I was raised Jewish. It wasn't until high school that I began to acknowledge Jesus calling me to Him. So this year I'm going through many, many firsts. I got baptized, I was involved in Communion for the first time actually understanding what the bread I was eating and the "wine" I was drinking meant, but Good Friday and Easter Sunday have been on my heart this entire week.
Being completely transparent up until two weeks ago I didn't even know what Good Friday was. Now knowing the events that occurred, it is crazy to think how much Jesus loved us.

After having a rough day at work a couple days ago, I was driving in my car listening to worship songs in the background as I began to speak out to God. I love driving because honestly it is my favorite time to talk to God. But that day, I hadn't really felt that close to Him. So as I began to speak and tell him how I was feeling, a rush of chills and emotions came over me. I started thinking about Good Friday and Easter and in that moment was wowed by how much love Jesus had for me before He knew me. He knows every flaw I have, every mistake I have made, yet His love never fails.

It was in that moment I realized, I can't turn away from God. In my darkest times I will always find His light to guide me. Because He is not a God who turns His back on us when we turn ours, instead He is a God who reaches His hand further to us when we turn away to remind us His love never fails.

I hope you all have such a wonderful Easter weekend. I know I'm excited and just cannot wait for Sunday.
I love you all so much!
