Finding a Rock in the Road
March 2, 2019
This is now the start of March and a new month. I came up with a list of goals and desires for the year and I am nowhere close to seeing any of them come to fulfillment. In many ways February was either discouraging, or neutral.
There is a section of Scripture about two weeks ago that I came across that is relevant to how I feel in this particular moment. It is in the second chapter of Paul’s letter to the Thessalonian church. He says that he tried to come visit the church more than once. He wanted very much to see them, but he was hindered. It looks like I am not leaving the desert any time soon, I tried to go back to my hometown more than once, actually several times, but I was hindered. For some reason, God wants me still to be in the desert for a few more months. The church is going through 40 days of prayer, and in this season of my life, I feel discouraged in my faith and in great need of a breakthrough.
Father in Heaven, I feel super discouraged right now in my faith and there are these moments when You appear so distant. The church has started a prayer focus for 40 days and I am so in need of breakthrough in many areas of my life right now including most importantly of all my faith in You. Please show me Your goodness and Your kindness in this moment of my life where I really need to know that You are here. Many of us are in a place in our lives where are really in need of a breakthrough. We really need to hear from You.
