The other day I was sitting in traffic. I HATE traffic! All sorts of unladylike things come out of my mouth while I sit in or navigate through traffic. On this particular day, I was on my way to eat dinner with a friend so I was in a bit of a rush.
There was so much traffic, it seemed like I would never get there. Then I heard sirens coming from behind me. I watched as an ambulance was able to get through the most crowded and impossible traffic. What was once impossible became possible.
At that moment that I was reminded that God can push through ANYTHING. He can make a way through your past. He can make a way on the job, He can make a way through to your family and even in your relationships.
It could be the most stressful and undesirable situation and God will PUSH THROUGH! Consider this, although Jonah disobeyed God when God gave him clear instructions, God pushed him through…well He commanded the fish to vomit Jonah onto dry land (Jonah 2). Then something miraculous happened. Jonah got another chance to complete the assignment God gave him! Isn’t that incredible?!
I am so glad God continues to keep us even though we make mistakes. This abstinence/celibacy journey takes a lot of sacrifice and sometimes you may make mistakes. God is still there and God knows your heart. No one expects perfection, God already knows what you are going to do before you do it (Psalm 139). So, don’t get discouraged.
If He purposed you with it, He will push you through it.
