Trusting The Process: When Life Isn’t Great
Last year this time my word was “suddenly,” and looking at what transpired during that time, it was appropriate.
Now here I am, well into the second half of this year, reflecting on my new normal all the while longing for my old life, trying to rectify what was and what is. This is the hardest thing to wrap my mind around. The part of grieving that no book, life coach, or therapist can seem to help me with.
Without going down the rabbit hole of what the last 10 months have been like, I will say, that it has been a process.
Grief is a process.
Transitioning into the mindset single motherhood, from married motherhood is a process.
Having to realize that I’m the only adult in the home, is a process.
Accepting that I’m no longer a wife, is a process.
My life right now is a process.
In the process of what? Honestly, I don’t know.
Too many days and nights I cried to the Lord and asked, “what is going on? Why did it have to be this way?”
In Philippians 1:6, Paul in the midst of him thanking the Philippians, he comforts them with the revelation that God always finishes what he starts. Here, Paul was speaking in terms of the Philippians’ salvation, but the scripture can also be applied to you beyond your salvation.
God doesn’t operate on chance, luck, or in response to how you feel about Him. He doesn’t change or give up just because you disagree with what He’s doing and how He’s doing it. He just continues the process of forming and reforming your life according to His divine plan.
While I am, in all honesty, so angry with Him at times, He loves me with an everlasting love, that I know won’t leave me an unfinished, incomplete work in progress.
All I can do is trust His process and His plan and pray that I can come out whole on the other side.
Are you in the process of going through a difficult time? I hope this somehow encouraged you to trust the process. I would love to hear how. Please share below. Thanks a bunch for encouraging me.
May God be with you until we meet again
