There’s a beauty in being rejected, misunderstood, unseen, and unsupported by people. It teaches you to rely on God for everything…

And you’ll have days were sadness sets its teeth in, and you can do nothing but breathe sad breaths, sigh sad sighs, and cry sad tears. It’s okay, it’s okay to lay down and let that sadness wash over you, just as long as you learn to keep your head up; Don’t let the sadness drown you, learn to float and swim, you’ll find safe ground soon… Just don’t drown, don’t give up.

One of the great paradoxes of Christian faith is that our weaknesses edify and encourage one another to greater holiness. Isn’t that strange? That strengths, perceived, and in particular, projected strengths could actually, at times, hinder growth in the things of God. Whereas honest weaknesses have a way of stirring us up towards greater holiness, creating safe places for us to experience the grace of God.

God has a way of stripping everything that we think we need, and He leaves just Himself to us. It is never an easy thing to be in that situation; one day praising God for His goodness and the next crying out to Him to make Himself known in the storm.

When we have rooted ourselves to a safe place, God tends to rip us out of the ground and plant us somewhere new. We may hate it, revile Him for it, and even reject Him for a time. But when we look back, we will see that we needed to be uprooted, to be changed from that place that was slowly killing us.

God is the master gardener, He knows all His plants by name, He delicately removes the bad weeds and waters the good seeds. He does what needs to be done, so that one day we can look back and see the majesty that He was doing.

You are being made into a beautiful thing, something that God loves to watch grow. So the next time you are taken out of your comfort zone, know that Christ is slowly making you something great, because He is doing it; and He is the greatest thing.

Pray in sorrow, pray in anger, pray in joy; pray, pray, pray. Pray until Heaven responds, and the Earth is restored to holiness; Pray until Christ wipes away our tears, and puts to death sin once and for all.

'Cause I loved you before you knew it was love
And I saw it all, still I chose the cross
And you were the one that I was thinking of
When I rose from the grave

Now rid of the shackles, My victory’s yours
I tore the veil for you to come close
There’s no reason to stand at a distance anymore
You’re not far from home
Keep on coming

And oh as you run
What hindered love
Will only become
Part of the story

Baby, you’re almost home now
Please don’t quit now
You’re almost home to Me
