Maybe It's His Way of...

"Patient endurance is what you need now, so you will continue to do God's will. Then you will receive all that he has promised." Hebrews 10:36

Sometimes when things get hard we seek to find the easiest way out,  whether by just walking away, leaving, ignoring the issue or just simply quitting. 

But it's in those times God wants to teach us, grow us, use us, and develop a strength in us we will need later. 

It's in these hard times, we have to keep our eyes on Christ and trust in His plan for our lives. We must listen to His voice of truth, hold on to His promises, look to Him for comfort and companionship and learn to rejoice even in our hardships. 

God has big plans for us. God has had a plan for each of us before we were even born. 

Sometimes our feeling of loneliness and struggle is God drawing us into Himself. He is simply removing some things and or people from our lives for a little while in order to get alone with us. His intentions are always sweet and always perfect, even if we can't see it at the time. 

His reaching out to us is His way of letting us know He desires us, wants us and loves us. 

As He reaches out, we should be grabbing on. Don't let this time of learning, growing and transforming slip away. 

"Dear brothers and sisters, whenever trouble comes your way, let it be an oppurtunity for joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything." James 1:2-3
