There Are No Dead Ends with God
In deep gratitude I uttered a pray within my heart as to how things seems to be working out when you least expect it to. These past few days have been filled with new challenges and trying out new venues. There was hope and as I was expressing my thank yous to Him, I got a brief impression in my mind of a soft gentle voice reminding me: "You should already know by now, there are no dead ends with Me". Just when you thought you've reached the end of your road, another unexpected and unfathomable road opens us. Just when you thought nothing will ever change, that's when He shows you that "your ways are not my ways" and "let me show you another way, a better way". When you feel like you've given your all and have done the best you can, He shows you how much further you still can go and how much more you still can do. With Him, the possibilities are endless and the "impossible" becomes possible for with God, nothing is impossible.
Self doubt exist when we put all our trust in our own hands and fail to acknowledge that there's a higher power and that He's there for us. His hands have always played an incredible role in my life whether I wanted to acknowledge it or not. It's those moments that I don't acknowledge Him that everything starts falling apart. This always leads to a rude awakening which assuredly ends with me falling on my knees asking for forgiveness for my stubbornness and pride. This morning I prayed for many things. My prayer was answered but not without a lot of work on my part. When we ask for something from Him, we have to be willing to show how much we want it and then work towards getting it. If you don't get it, that simply means you're no ready for it or it's not time yet. Or, it could simply means it wasn't meant to be so try something else.
"There are no dead ends with Me". It's as if a flicker of a flame barely giving light and all at once it burst into a burning fire within me. With God everything is hopeful, positive and bright. There's a picture frame on top of my Computer desk in my room that quotes: "You future is as bright as your faith". When you are hopeful, full of faith and positive, your eyes are opened up to the many blessings that has been coming your way all along and that there are many more yet to come. To receive more blessings, we have to cheerfully count the ones we already have and make sure we are acknowledging His hands in everything.
Tonight I rejoice in the knowledge that God can make anything possible. I rejoice in the fact that He is full of grace and mercy. I marvel at His unconditional love towards me, so undeserving and unworthy. That He loves me enough to forgive me and continue to lead and guide me. Tonight I rejoice that there are no dead ends with God. Our progress is everlasting and Eternal just as He is Everlasting and Eternal.
