Have you ever been in a season in your life where you feel like nothing can go right? Do you understand what I mean? I mean those seasons where you hit your toe, run out of gas, break your leg, overdraft your account, and lose your man…type of season. The time where you can fight anyone that comes your way and your not even the fighting type. You’re walking around with your chest stuck out like, “Try me”!
Well, my name is Daishu and I’ve been walking in the valley for quite a while now. It seems like something is always happening. From losing someone I love to losing my childhood home, I’ve really come to the grips that this life is full of ups and downs. I know you may be thinking that this is something everyone should be aware of but honestly, not me. I knew life was hard but honey, I didn’t know that it was this hard. The sad part about it is knowing that someone out there has it harder than I do… dang, I feel for them.
I am a very spiritual person. I believe in Jesus as my personal savior so I believe that God is causing all things to work together for my good. However, what is the most compelling part about believing this is the fact that God is causing all things to work together for our good? Like all things, including this little stank time of suffering. I trust God though. I believe he’s up to something. My human inclinations seem to get in the way from time to time, but I believe it all is for a greater purpose that I can’t yet comprehend or will ever comprehend.
So, my reflections lead me to this… what am I to do? Trusting God is a matter of actions, considering that “trusting” is a verb. I think I will wait and see what my Big Pops has in store. I can’t guess what he’s doing, but I can rightfully assume that its important to His will. With these understanding, I know its important to fight for the time of studying scripture, prayer, serving the community, and sharing the Gospel… all things that I can do better at.
Maybe that’s what he’s doing, equipping me into holiness.
If I am to know, I will definitely learn when it is meant to unfold. In the meantime, I will journey and carry out my days rebuking this ugly season of trials and tribulation. Boy, I am tired of trials and tribulations. When they are over, I will rejoice and probably plan a vacation. Yeah, I’ll plan a vacation.
