Repositioned not Abandoned

In our darkest moments we tend to feel as though the Lord has abandoned us.  Sometimes He’s re-positioning us for something greater.  We can’t see where He’s taking us because we are so set on where we were.  Pastor Rick Warren says that worry sets in when we take our focus off of God.  Instead we lean on our own understanding and worry.  We want things to happen in our time and in our way.

Just remember that God loves you and always has your best interest at heart.  If you can remember that very important fact then focusing on the Lord even during the most trying hardships will be easier.  The bible says that His thoughts are not our thoughts and His way are not our ways.  Keep your eyes on Him so that when he re-positions you, you aren’t left feeling gloomy over what was in yesterday.  You’ll instead rise to the occasion and see the blessing in what is to come.
