what we can't see

I'll be the first to admit it- life is hard sometimes.  

Oh, sure- it's not like that all the time. A lot of the time life feels great, and it's going well. You know the feeling. Everything's under control, and we feel like we've got this down.  

But what do we do when it's not? When we don't have it all down?

when it's confusing?

when it's painful?

 when it's just too much to handle on your own?

We can run to Jesus, who is the ultimate source of unfailing comfort and love. He is always there for us, and He will never let you down. And one thing He's shown me in times like that is something very important, something that we'll need to remember for the rest of our lives:

>> what we can't see is sometimes greater than what we can see <<

when we don't understand why it doesn't make sense, He still has a plan. 

when we don't understand why it hurts, He still has a plan.

when we don't understand why it feels like too much to handle, He still has a plan.

Isaiah 55:9 says
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."

His ways are better than ours. His ways are higher than ours. His ways are  always the best, no matter what we think. 

Through the tough situations in life, we can rest assured that it's okay, becuase He's preparing us for something bigger- something that we can't see yet. 

We may never fully understand why things happen to us the way they do, but we don't have to understand everything. We only have to trust. Trust God that the difficult things that happen to us right now- what we can't see- are preparing us for something better that will be unveiled to us one day. 

 I think we'll be surprised to realize that sometimes, the things that we can't see here on earth is what is preparing us for something bigger than this earth (and therefore, bigger than what we can comprehend right now). 

So don't worry. Just trust, Trust that no matter what happens, God has a plan, and what we can't see is preparing us for what we one day will be able to see clearly in the Light of eternity. ♥
