That's all fine, doing the next thing and all. But what do you make of it? At the end of the day how do you interpret your life when it keeps stinking? God is mad at you? He's not good? You aren't doing enough? Try harder? Pray more? Or maybe God plays favorites and you're not one of them. Better yet, maybe its nothing to do with you or God, maybe the people around you are a bunch of ... well, icky people out to ruin you life.
Or what if it's none of that? What if God loves you more than you can even imagine? What if He has an eternal smile fixed on you and nothing can ever change that? Maybe you live in a more sin-filled world than you can ever know and it spills out onto you in the most painful ways. Maybe He's rescuing you in ways you can't glimpse or even imagine. What if He's doing something on a level you can't catch sight of, yet He's picked you to be in on it?
Noticed. Chosen. Named. Protected. Held. Adored.
Just hold tight. He's got your back.
