Sometimes It Doesn't Get Better; It Just Gets Different

“I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners. I said to you: You are My servant; I have chosen you and not rejected you.” (Isaiah 41:9)

There are many times throughout our life when we are thrown a curve ball or worse yet, a sledge hammer to our heart and we cannot understand why.  It is not up to us to understand God’s timing, or the reason behind every bad circumstance we may be faced with.  We do; however, need to trust and believe that He does know and He wants the best for all of us.  Not the best for just you, but the best for everyone!  

Sometimes, we have to go through these difficult times to become a better person, a more understanding, loving, compassionate, patient, but most of a stronger person.  We have a lesson to learn along the way.  God may even be using us to go through a terrible situation because He already knows that we have been chosen to help others go through similar situations.  It is important to understand that when you are struggling through a terrible loss of a loved one, or a life-altering experience for us or a loved one, that things will never be the same again.  Sometimes you’ll never get back to the way it was before no matter how hard you try, but you must grow to accept that and know that it will simply become a different kind of better!  

Trust in the Lord always, because He is always there for you and He will never forsake you!  God never said we would not have trials to deal with in this life.  And I do not believe He is responsible for these worldly errors we must face, but He is there to help us face them and to become stronger for having gone through these terrible times!  So, if you doubt the Lord due to these worldly errors, I urge you to turn back around.  Turn back to God and ask Him to help you!  He will help you accept a different kind of better so you can move forward and find peace again.

Jeremiah, say this to the people of Judah: “This is what the Lord says:  “You know if a man falls down, he gets up again. And if a man goes the wrong way, he turns around and comes back.” (Jeremiah 8:4)
