God has not forgotten about you.
If you’ve been overcome with doubt or feelings of abandonment, how you feel makes sense. There are a million valid reasons to feel that way.
At times, we only see a small part of the bigger plan. Sometimes, we hear nothing. I personally believe it’s fine to confide in God and say, “This is completely unfair, and I’m not okay with any of this.“
A few years ago, I experienced a troubled period of time when I doubted that God even cared. How could he let something as bad as a major manic episode come over my life? Why am I waking up to my car almost being repossessed? Why am I unable to keep those I love safe?
Unanswered questions. Unresolved anger.
There was no overnight solution to this. I cursed and ran and wrestled, and yet, he had never left.
Eventually, I sought wise counsel from those who’ve endured life’s punches. Then, I referred to his promises. I saw myself in the story of Job – all the way through to Job’s life being restored.
Truth be told, I’m still learning and being tested. Faith takes a lifetime to perfect. I’m working on forgiveness. I’m trying to make all this less about me.
It’s a never-ending thing.
Let this be a reminder of his presence in your life. He’s there. A note that your better days are coming. They are. And, an invitation to feel how you feel and be honest with where you’re at.
God can handle it.
