Utterly dependent. What a blessed place to be! God will use your surrender in difficult moments to move you in unthinkable ways. The mystery of His good work has an incredible opportunity to fall on your heart when you are in a place of humble reliance such as this! You are a child of the one true King, the Alpha and Omega, the author of your life. He has a plan with a purpose for your life. Your incredible worth is established not by man, but by Him alone, and nothing can change this! Seasons in life come and go, but how you emerge from them can make you or break you. I have peace, joy and faith that Christ is at work in me and wants the best for me no matter what trials and tribulations I may be experiencing at the time. He is and shall be glorified for this beautiful life that He has given us. Push forward. God is here for us, and as believers, nothing can separate us from His love.
Consider it pure joy...whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything // James 1:2-4
But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong // 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us // Romans 5:3-5
