As I felt the despair begin to set in I looked up and began to cry out, “what do I do now?” Before I could finish the question a warm embrace engulfed me as I heard His whisper, “My child your only mistake was to think that you had to “do” anything but rest in me, oh and one more thing, it is never what do I do now, its what do “we” do now for I will Never leave you or forsake you!”
“A time is coming and in fact has come when you will be scattered, each to your own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me.” John 16:32
I have Great News! Times are going to get tough! Times are going to get Really terrible and pain will become unbearable!
Why Great News? Because it lets Love shine down from Above in a whole new reality! God is Not in the stagnation business, nor is He in the fix yourself business – as a result learn to rest in what you have, who you are and all that is around you And Life becomes a Joy ride!
The trouble with Heaven for most is it only starts After death – but Heaven – Real Heaven right Here and Now IS possible and Jesus showed us that! How? By Loving us enough to show us the secret to Suffering Saintly!
Suffering Saintly is the art of knowing in the midst of the storm Who it is that is with you! Suffering Saintly is the art of knowing in the midst of Hell it is no longer I who live but Christ lives In me! Suffering Saintly is the art of resting in your own personal Hell fully knowing that you are Not alone and as a result Peace comes over you!
Remember this despair is not “sin” – despair is simply the pain of Faith pushing through the soil of life to open up the petals on your Son flower!
The bigger our problems – The Bigger our God! This is the recipe for Faith to grow, problems to become small and Peace to reign in your life! The Bigger we see God – the easier our life becomes! The more we see His Love beyond the borders of what we thought possible the less the impossible will exist!
