1 Peter 5:6-7
therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you,
casting the whole of your care on Him,
for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
1 Peter 5: 10
And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, Who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be,
establish and ground you securely,
and strength, and settle you.
there's something so sweet about God's promise. and by something, i mean in its entirety. how amazing is it that He loves ME this much? i don't even think i love myself this much. He is constantly there, constantly watching over me, constantly keeping a hand in everything i do and go through. there's so much comfort in knowing that no matter what trials i have to endure, He is there. and all it takes is calling out for His name.
it's no surprise that right now i'm going through it. this whole "life-thing" isn't easy and it's not always fun, but God promised me two things: 1) there'd be an end and 2) He'll be there through it all.
i know that He's got my back. i have nothing to worry about. i know that He will restore everything that has been taken away...and not only will it be restored...it'll exceed my wildest expectations. His plan for me is far better than my own ambition and i'm fully invested in being what HE wants me to be.
