Isn’t it amazing, how beautiful things are made out of difficult situations? Like gold, silver, or even pottery; the fire doesn’t have to be consuming, it could be refining.
Maybe, life isn’t supposed to be all smooth,
Maybe, it’s okay to embrace the storm,
Maybe, the storm can birth something new,
Maybe, difficult situations don’t have to be evil.
Recently, I’ve been thinking,
How life can be so overwhelming,
And whether to just take a break from all,
But then, as I meditate on the Scriptures,
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. 2 Corinthians 12:9.
It comes to mind,
How Jesus had sent His disciples ahead of him,
Yet they encountered storms,
Terrifying, life-threatening storms.
Maybe, just maybe, the storm is not the problem,
Maybe, it’s how we react to the storm,
Oh yes, it’s definitely how we speak to the storm.
I recall my Jesus, asleep in the storm,
I recall Him walking on the storm,
Oh yeah, I recall Him inviting Peter to walk on the waters,
Truly, He declared, “Peace be still”.
Now, I know, the storm is not my problem,
No longer will I fear a stormy situation:
Whether it be fear, doubt, or opposition,
Instead, I’ll invite my Jesus into the storm, speak to the storm, or go to sleep.
I, Abba’s Masterpiece, will no longer be afraid,
I, The Father’s Daughter, will no longer be moved,
I, Esthitude, will no longer cower,
I stand gidigba,
Unshaken, cos my Jesus dey for me.
Dear reader, thank you for reading this heartfelt piece, this write-up is really not about me; it’s more for YOU.
I hope it spoke to you and encouraged you that no matter the challenges you may go through, you’ll come out victorious, just remember to invite Jesus into whatever the situation is, and He’ll come through for you.
The Father’s Daughter,
