Have there been times in your life when you felt like giving up? You gave your best but still failed? Waited and waited but things did not seem to get better? I know I have fallen into these situation many times in my life. As much as we would love life to always go the way we want to, life is simply a roller coaster. We will never have a perfect happy life 247, but the good news is, we can be joyful during the bad seasons in our life.
We should be joyful during the bad seasons of our life because we have a mighty God who we can put our trust and hope on. We have a God who never fails and never gives up on us. A God who always gives us his best when we give him our best. Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” During the bad storm, be joyful and use that time to praise God for his goodness and faithfulness to us.
God has many promises in the bible that are meant to blossom in your life. It is a matter of claiming his living word and believing it with no doubts. Preserve and endure yourself in God during your troubled times and in God’s time he will bless you. No one will know why you experience the obstacles you face in life, but trust God because he knows what is best for you. He knows what you need to become a better and stronger person in Christ.
Despite what your common sense says, trust God in any situation that he puts you in. John 15:2 says, “He cuts off every branch that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” We might ask why would God take away something that is good for us? Sometimes the good things in our life are taken away because God wants to mold us into something better. But even during our pruning times, we should be joyful because God is preparing us for something even better.
Continue your journey with joy even during the bad season. Faith will take you farther than what your eyes can see. God will bring you the opportunities and blessings that you need when you work hard, honor God, and have full trust in him. Don’t stop when the walking gets tough. The painful journey will not be forever, and you will see the blessings if you just take the next steps to keep moving forward. Galations 6:9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”After night the morning always comes. Focus on the morning and stay strong during the night. With God, the morning will always shine upon your life, we just need to wait.
Trust God with your life and know that he will take care of you. When you start putting your trust to God and surrendering everything to him, he does take care of you. When you surrender everything, that is when God takes in everything. Give God all your worries and problems because in his hands, everything will be ok. Walk through the bad season with joy because God will be by your side through it all; and that is all you need to know. So remember, after every bad season is a good season.
