“Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.” - Job 13:15
Many times we have reasons to be frustrated and bewildered at the sudden loss of everything or nearly everything we have. Disasters have came my way twice in my lifetime, that have affected me in different way: one by way of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the other in the form of the EF3 Tornado that hit Eastern New Orleans area in February 2017.
When Hurricane Katrina hit, I was surrounded by my beautiful mother and my amazing daughter. But when i learned of the devastation of the tornado that hit my neighborhood, I was all alone. Mother had went home to be with the Lord a few years before and my daughter was many miles away on a business trip.
So you see, trusting God was all I had to hold on to to keep myself together when the unexpected happened. Putting your faith and trust in God will carry you through any situation or circumstance. There are times when disasters come and people see nothing but material loss. Material possessions can be replaced, but the loss of life cannot.
Through all I experienced, my faith remained intact and unwavered. I stood back and looked from behind the disasters and realized God kept me and my family safe from hurt, harm and danger.
We can’t always see the marvelous hand of God working out His purpose, even through trials and tribulations that come our way. By trusting in God we can more readily accept the difficulties of life and have full and complete confidence that He is in control and allows things that happen in our life to work together for our GOOD and for His GLORY.
You don’t have to always show your hand; show your HEART. And if you’re “Behind the Scene” with God on your side, “YOU WIN!”
So, let 2018 be a year of “PRESSING ON” and “LEAPING FORWARD” into what God is calling you to be and do both in your personal and professional life.
