We all go through adversity. Tough times that leave us thinking we'll never make it through. Tough times that leave us wondering if God is listening. I think part of the reason these situations are so difficult to navigate through is because we are hoping for a certain resolution and timeframe. We know how God should solve a certain problem and just how He should do it. In other words, we want full control over the situation. When the situation doesn't resolve how and when we want, we're left feeling frustrated with ourselves and God.
While we're waiting, God does work in us that couldn't be accomplished any other time. During this time, God does work in us that we need to go to another level. This is a crucial time that we need to become the women He created us to be. During this time, we need to surrender to that process. Surrender to the fact that God knows better. Surrender to the fact that God's ways are higher than ours. This surrender isn't easy and the good news is, God knows that. We're not alone. Ask God to give you strength during adversity. Ask God for perseverance when you face tough times. It's His strength that's made perfect, when we're weak. When we humble ourselves and admit that we don't have control, God's strength will help us take the next step and the next.
