Ever sat in silence and realized that God has done some amazing things in your life?!? You may not be where you want to be (physically, emotionally, or spiritually) but you are right where He needs you to be. Too often people are afraid to give themselves to Him because they say they're not perfect. If you were you wouldn't need Him! I'm heavily flawed but I thank Him constantly for showing it to me. The best relationship I have ever had has been with Him because it's based on truth.
Could you imagine if you were where you wanted to be? If you got everything you wanted? You wouldn't pray! You wouldn't feel the need. You'd walk around giving yourself the glory for everything you've done and not acknowledge His existence. We often take for granted the unspoken love He give us. Think about it. He loved us enough to wake us up this morning even though we didn't breathe His name the night before.
When all is well it seems to be a no brainier to praise and pray but the moment one thing occurs that questions His love for us, we are quick to stop asking for His grace and mercy! But let's be honest, if it was not for grace and mercy most of us would be way worse off than what we think we are. There is a saying that there is always someone worst off than you. That statement has always weighted heavily on my heart. Knowing what I have been through, I can't imagine someone dealing with situations more difficult than my trial at the time.
Our trials and tribulations are major when they are happening! Once we have passed through our storms we are reminded that there is sunshine, light after darkness. I say all of this to say, silence can be deafening! Take the time to enjoy the silence! Your time is coming! When it does, the air will be filled with so much excitement from your praise! Be Blessed and Be a Blessing!
