There will be times in life when you will cry. Loved ones will die. You may lose a job. Be falsely accused. Lied on. Family members may even turn their back on you. You may have health challenges.
You may even lose a child.
There are times that life just sucks. You dont understand why this happens or why that happens. You can spend hours, days, weeks, months or years trying to find meaning in the incident. The answer may come. ..or it might not. The thing about faith..it means despite what sadness challenges, hurts or disappointing issues you will face (we all face them). There will be a God who will restore all that the enemy stole.

There is a season for everything. The Bible is very clear on this. It’s up to us whether we choose to dance during the storms of life or get swept away by them. I was honest with struggling with losing Baby Smith, I had my season of mourning. I will always have a slight ache in my heart-a scar if you will from that loss. And that’s ok too.

It doesn’t matter what it looks like,I will continue to praise God and I will continue to radically seek Him. He will give me beauty for my ashes.
