There are many times in life where we want to hurry up and get through a situation or problem. Of course we want to do this because no one enjoys going through heartaches and pains. We want to skip all of the bad, and the unknown to get to the good stuff. However we know that life doesn't happen that way. I've been guilty of it many times. I would wonder, and even ask God to show me what my future outcome would be. I know that was silly of me, but I thought I would at least give it a try :). Then I had to come to the realization that I just need to Trust the Process.
My Pastor says that trials don't come to make you strong, they actually come to tear you down, however in the midst of that you allow the trials, situations, circumstances, and conditions to be a lesson for you. You have to trust that even though it isn't looking good, and it may seem like it's the worst that it's ever been, that it is going to work out for you! You just have to believe that it will. Don't give in to what it looks like, and how it makes you feel. Just Trust the Process!!! The Bible says "And I am certain that God who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns" (Philippians 1:6 NLT).
Say it with me TRUST THE PROCESS! Be good with where you are. "Don't worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:6-7 NLT). Know that you are going to make it through. Don't rush just trust! We become so focused on the end result that we lose sight of the journey we take to get there. We have to be real with God, and let him know how we feel. I know that I need to ask God for patience so that I'll stop trying to rush the process.
With every obstacle that comes our way we should be built up instead of torn down. I say this because we have God on our side. He has brought us through time and time again, and he's not going to stop as long as we continue to trust in him. Therefore every time something comes our way we should use the negative to bring positive in a way that we are being built up. These obstacles should build our character, faith, patience, endurance, but only if we don't give in to how much pain it is causing. You have to believe that it is only a matter of time before this situation, circumstance, condition, or feeling turns in your favor! Everything is going to work out in YOUR favor. say this with confidence "It's going to work out in MY favor"!!! Your life is going to be better than ever. Don't stop trusting! If it's not looking better, know without a doubt that it's not the end, you have got to keep pushing and trust the process! Trust our God "God is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not a human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? has he ever promised and not carried it through?" (Numbers 23:19 NLT). He's got you! There is nothing that you will ever go through, that God can not bring you through! If only you trust in him and know that it is going to work out for your good.
I may not be with who I want to be with right now, or with who I think I should be with, but that doesn't mean I give up and stop believing. Even though it's a situation that I DON'T want to be in, something good is going to come from it, and that something good is ME! I'm filled with patience, faith, trust, hope, belief, and love! What the devil meant for evil, God has SURELY turned it around for my good! This will not tear me down like the devil thought it would. It will not cause me to stagger at the promises of God. IT WILL NOT DEFEAT ME!!! I am A Overcomer. I will trust the process because I know GODS GOT ME!
You can either have peace, rest easy and Trust the Process, or waste time worrying. You choose.
It IS Well so Be Brave
