We all have situations in our lives that drive us to get in the presence of God. Whether it is our spouses, kids, parents, the world we all come into contact with difficult and heart-wrenching circumstances the question is who will be our source of comfort and healing in those times. We can choose to the Almighty God or we can cry, be angry and harbor bitterness in our hearts. I have been in both places and let me tell you that is a far better place to be on your knees in communication with the Lord than with nothing to console you at all.
I spent the first 9 years of my marriage learning to go to God for everything and I am still learning. I wanted God to take away the pain and grief in an instant but God did not do that in my case. As the memories of abuse would surface I can remember now that God was right there with me although at the time it did not feel that way. The tears would just keep coming and I did not know when it would end. I am on the other side of that now and I can say that though it was a difficult time for me I would not change it because I got to know THE LORD in a way I never dreamed existed here on this earth.
There is a song I like to sing here are the words below although I do not know who wrote it.
Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary pure and holy ,Tried and true/ And with thanksgiving I’ll be a living sanctuary for you.
There is something special that happens when we go to God and it is more than just getting to know God: IT IS A SPECIAL THOUGHT TO ME THAT GOD KNOWS ME. HE TOOK THE TIME TO MAKE ME, HE TAKES THE TIME. How many of us can say we take the time for HIM. To Get to KNOW HIM though I am not always physically on my knees I will tell you this that when I do I fall to my face before HIM.
Consider that Circumstance as way to know the LORD in a deeper way than you have ever Known HIM before! YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID!
