I feel like I owe the world a testimony. I’m supposed to have a story to tell about how I went through a terrible storm and came out stronger than ever, but the truth is, after about 2 years of “going through”, it’s not over. Although I’m usually one to stay positive and to offer words of encouragement, I often need to take my own advice to help me feel better about what I’m going through.
I won’t get into detail about what has had me feeling down lately, but I will say that I am just not where I want to be in my life right now. For some reason, bad things keep happening to me and it seems to only get worse. I can’t help but wonder, why me? Though I’m very far from perfect, I try to live right and obey God. I don’t feel like I’m deserving of the things I go through and it’s all too easy to compare myself to others and see that somebody else has it better than I do. But why, God?
I’m sure many of you can relate to how I feel and what I’m going through. The advice I keep receiving is to press on. Trust God and know that your breakthrough is not far away. Trust me, I know how hard it is to believe that when you’re hurting, but I’ve seen God’s work enough to know that it’s true. As for why this is happening, maybe I’ll find out later. Maybe I’ll never know. But one thing’s for sure. It’s for my own good.
So in the midst of this storm, whether it’s lasted 2 days, 2 months, or 2 years, let’s praise Him. Our testimony is coming soon.
