It’s easy to feel like we’re stuck, isn’t it?
I’d even dare to say that when trials hit, more often than not, we tend to start believing that things will never get better. You’ve hit a dead end and there’s no turning back.
First of all, welcome to the wild journey of life on earth, sister! We’ve all felt this way, and with each new trial that life brings, we’re faced with the dreaded fear of dead ends. Whether you’ve been a christian your whole life, just met Jesus, or don’t even know who He is, you will face trials, and with those trials come uncertainty and fear.
You know what’s amazing about the Word of God? I mean, there are a lot of amazing things. But one amazing thing is that we get to hide it in our heart, and that means that when we reach those dead ends, we can remind ourselves of who He is, whose we are, and all of the ways He has shown up, over and over again.
Remember when Moses freed the Israelites from Egypt? The Israelites must have been terrified and full of doubt as they approached the massive Red Sea…the ultimate dead end. To make matters worse, the Egyptians were in hot pursuit, chasing after them. I mean, just imagine the terror they must have felt.
Ummm… what? You mean THAT sea? The massive one in front of me? Do you know how big that is? Do you know what’s IN THERE? I’m not so sure about this…it’s just… impossible.
But guess what? God straight up turned that Red Sea into A HALLWAY.
“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.” [Exodus 14:21-22]
Read that again. Then just take a minute to praise Him for His greatness. He MADE A WAY when there was NO WAY.
BraveGirls, if you’re standing at a dead end today, can I just remind you that the same God who parted the Red Sea for Moses can do the same for you! You serve a God who is bigger than your circumstances. You are a child of the ONE TRUE KING. This darkness is NOT a dead end – it’s a hallway. Lay it down at His feet. Seek His will. Call upon your tribe. And keep going. He always shows up.
You’re not alone, sister!
