Kari Jobe sings a song titled: You Are Not Alone – Kari Jobe
And, as I traveled to Belgium this past week … alone … I kept remembering I wasn’t alone, even when I felt like I was! I believed God was with me every step of the way. But, because I felt a bit more vulnerable given world events, and as a flight was cancelled, another delayed, and yet another missed … I kept saying to my Lord and Savior … I need you, I lean on you, I trust you … for I know I am not alone – You are always with me, making a way when there seems to be none! I had to consciously allow what I knew to get down into my heart, reassuring myself of truth, and in that I found peace and favor.
This trip reminded me how easily it can be to forget to invite God throughout our routine … cause, well … we got this one covered, we’ve done this before. As I felt desperate, I noticed how consciously and quickly I ran to God!
Whether you are in your routine day or facing a great adventure or challenge of life, I encourage you to know and believe that if you believe in God, though Jesus Christ … He is with you, always! He loves YOU! As you open your heart to Him … developing the personal relationship with Him that He so desires, ask Him to guide your steps, to show you the way, for His ways are truly better than ours, as He knows our beginning from the end.
This little trip reminded me that challenges are not bad … they can be redirecting us into something better; they can help us grow stronger in our trust In Christ; they can open our eyes to things the Lord wants to show us … and on and on. Truth is that God knows our needs and as we seek Him … He guides us down the path He has planned for us. Jeremiah 29:11
Be encouraged, you are not alone. No matter how dark it may seem, you are loved – He gave His life for you. Ask and receive that love and guidance today!
God’s Love and Blessings, Michelle
