Be Faithful During Your Storm!
I remember back in 2010 when I was in a situation where I was fed up. I was so frustrated and was at my wit’s end. I remember talking to one of my best friends Keitaya literally in tears. I explain to her everything that was going on. I told her because of this situation I had to drop out of school. It was very bad. Although no one around me actually knew that because I put on a smile when everyone saw me. At the end I said” I have to leave here” and I knew if I stayed I wouldn’t bring my best to the table. After I pour my frustrations out on her she later gave me a scripture.
DANIEL 10:12 NIV. THEN HE CONTINUED , DO NOT BE AFRAID, DANIEL. SINCE THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU SET YOUR MIND TO GAIN UNDERSTANDING, AND TO HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR GOD, YOUR WORDS WERE HEARD AND I HAVE COME IN RESPONSE TO THEM.
That scripture spoke to my soul. It reassure me that my prayer had been heard and now it time to wait on God. After she gave me that scripture I typed it up, printed it out and put it on the busiest place in my home…the fridge door lol. From that point on I stop complaining even though I was still hurting. I would leave physically and emotionally spent every time I walked in the door at home. However,I still remain faithful. I still did everything that was required of me not just because I knew in my spirit I was leaving I did because I should. I truly believed that is why in a few months time after getting that scripture I received a notice that I was being released and will be soon leaving. On that day I jumped for joy. I knew it was nothing but God and me being faithful during my storm. I encourage anyone who are going through similar circumstances to remain FAITHFUL. God looks for that.
MATTHEW 25:23 NIV HIS MASTER REPLIED ” WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT! YOU HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL WITH A FEW THINGS, I WILL PUT YOU IN CHARGE OF MANY THINGS. COME AND SHARE YOUR MASTER’S HAPPINESS!’
That experience showed in many ways that God does hear our prayers he is just waiting to see if you will remain faithful to him and other things until he blesses you with more. Be encouraged my loves as well as faithful.
