When the Road is Difficult

Life isn't always the way we want it to be or the way it seems it should be. Going through one of those times now and I have to keep reminding myself that God works all things for our good. Our tough times are what build our character and integrity. We can choose to trust God for our outcomes or try to just fix things on our own. While we are "waiting" we must listen closely to God, spend time hearing Him through His Word and listening to the voice of our spirit, saying "this is the way, walk in it". I have been taking more time looking at the people who have gone before me in this world who have traveled difficult roads, yet kept their eyes on God and were delivered into a better place, and or God made wonderful things happen through their willingness to follow and be obedient. God wants us to come up a step; move up a rung on the ladder; get a little closer; rise higher. Do we always understand it? No. Is it always easy? No. Does it happen the way we think it should? No. Can we trust Him? YES.
