When Your Life is Falling Apart

Sometimes it just feels like your life is falling apart. Literally. Your plans, your career, your physical body, your social life, your school and school work. It just hits you--and it hits you hard. Real hard. You begin to question those things that you don't question when times are good. And maybe it's not all bad, just a few things may be wrong, or one major thing....

It is in these moments when you sit down and really feel like crying,
and your heart is heavy with other people's struggles in your life,
"Therefore do not lose heart, for outwardly we are wasting away, but inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For these slight and momentary afflictions are preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure."

2 Corinthians 4:16-17
It's the beautiful refining fire of God. Don't look at the waves, just the Lord and His vision.

  1. Thanks Rachel. :) I love this verse in the Bible (I forgot the reference) but it starts out like, "Take heart! I have overcome the world." And it just gives me peace every time.
