She sat at the tomb where He was buried and waited for Him. I mean she really waited for him. And wept. Her faith, her commitment, and her devotion inspires me so very much.
I really get it. I can totally relate to her..I have tasted of the bitter, but I saw how God made things sweeter. I have been in a broken mess but God stepped in and made something beautiful. He exchanged his beauty for my ashes. The ashes of brokenness, the ashes of hurt and fear, the ashes of defeat.
I’ve been broken. I’ve been desperate for God. I’ve been plagued with demons that haunted me and tried their best to take me under and drown me. Those demons of depression, hopelessness, fear. The enemy will never cease in trying to defeat God’s children; but this just further confirms who we belong to.
I’ve had some intense pruning and sanctification. I have walked through such fire when it felt like the devil himself had his hand on the thermostat and left me tell you it was getting turned up. But my King, my Savior walked onto the scene. All I knew in that moment was abandon and complete surrender.
I then knew what it was to trust him at all costs, cling to him with all that is within me, and know he would deliver me from the hands of the enemy.
In my deepest wounds, I saw His glory and to this day it always dazzles me.
Let that infuse you with some hope!
He is making you new. Allow Him to do it, dear soul. Endure the process and the frequent tests and trials of your faith. Conquer fear, conquer hurt, conquer pain, conquer unforgiveness, and conquer whatever else so that you can become one of fierce faith.
Be strong! Be fearless. Be bold. Be courageous. Be different.
