Where is God in the dry seasons?
Category: Member Blogs
Where is God in our dry season?
Where is our help when we are hurting?
Where is God when the night closes in?
Where is God when fear has its hold on me?

You will experience many different seasons in life.
You will question your faith.
You will find it hard to keep your mind steady.
You will feel lost.
You will feel confused.
You were not made to understand it.

In our weaknesses ;He is made strong.
In our helplessness; He is our strength.
In our hopelessness ;He is our hope.
In our wandering;He is our help.
In our mess ;He is our Messiah.

In our dry seasons
In our rainy seasons
In our harvest seasons
In our many seasons, He is there to hold us.

We were not made to understand the seasons.
We were made to trust and have faith.
We were not made to carry these burdens alone.
We are told to lay them down at His feet.

Where is God in the dry seasons?
He hasn't ignored you.
He hasn't left you.
He hasn't abandoned you.
He is watching and waiting.

This desert may be dry and lonely, but I am not alone for the Lord my God guides my every step.

He shields me from the sun.
He wraps me up at night for He is my light.
I don't fear for He is always near!

I may walk this path alone.
I may not always understand it.
I may not feel like obeying.
I may not feel like trusting.
I may not feel like staying put.
I may not like it, but I do it.

So, if you are in the dry and lonely places right now, I want you to know that God sees you. It may feel like it's becoming overwhelming for your soul. I know it's hard. I know it's uncomfortable. I know you hate it, but nothing lasts forever!

Your season will be over.
Your pain is not done in vain.
Your sores.
Your sighs are not falling on deaf ears.

Be at peace and know that the God of miracles is watching you. He loves you. He cares for you.
