Do you feel like your life is falling apart?

balancing faith and hope imageDo you feel as though everything you touch falls apart that your life is in conflict and you feel caught in the dark crevices of life? Be faithful and TRUST GOD in the dark places because that is where you are shown how to grow. It may feel like a test and a challenging moment and it is, but when something is ending in your life and when things are falling apart, it usually means that the old ways must be cut and severed so the New Tomorrow can be born.

It is easy to get discouraged with life when we are pushed into a dark place of despair and fear. God doesn't send the difficulties but He allows them so that we can grow our spirit and develop the depths of our soul because in truth that is our true purpose to grow and move out of our comfort zone. God doesn't cause the pain but He definitely allows pain to appear because He knows that in our dark places we will get stronger -braver and more in tune with the wonders that God wants us to know.

This may be the time when your faith is stretched and challenged but know that this is also the time when you must develop your spiritual muscles and show God and yourself that you are a winner and will not give up. When I have been challenged in my life, the pain was intense-fear set in and doubt and worry were always present. I soon was shown that this was the time that my soul developed a strength that I would never have understood if I was not brought to this place. God is growing our character our sense of value and worth to see if we are worthy and up for the task. It is during these times that we are shown who we are and what we CAN become.

God's message is: We must go through the valley in order to get to the other side the side where our joys and greatest moments will be revealed. It may not seem fair or just but when you are brought to the other side of the dark valley, you will walk into the brightness of your celebration. God is leading you to your glory but you must fist walk through the darkness of the valley if you want to reach your destiny. Believe that on the other side of the valley is the feast prepared for you. The dream you have been dreaming about for a long time is about to be revealed. When you are confronted with your dark places Trust God #Believe in His Power and Get Excited because you are being prepared for your greatness. This experience is simply a prerequisite for your extraordinary journey.

We all have questions we may lack understanding and reasoning but don't get caught up in the logical reasoning. Instead, continue to honor God, trust in His way and believe that God has a purpose; that the perfect reason of why you were brought to this dark place will eventually make sense.

People do not determine your destiny God does! Stay in God's favor praise and give ���Thanks' to God for all that you have. Oh, yes, there will be times when we feel broken, disappointed and move into the darkness - - don't get discouraged or bitter. Stay in faith and do not settle in the valley. Don't give up and linger in the valley continue to move through it push through the darkness and keep going. Soon you will see a small flicker of light and as you keep walking, you will begin to see that small sliver expand into more and more light and finally you will get through and see the beauty that is waiting for you on the other side. No one likes to be buried in the dark places that is why, you should not linger there. Your potential can only be experienced as you continue to keep walking.

Read this Psalms 23-4 The Lord is my Shepherd:

"He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. "

I believe that the journey is well worth the passage way through the Valley of the darkness. For me, I know I must keep walking!
