Day 1: Big Enough


IT happens.

And you can't believe IT happens.

BUT IT is part of life.

BUT when IT hits you

you start to wonder

&

you may start to question

the ONE who you TRUST,

because HE is in control

and HE is good,

oh so very good,

BUT IT still happened.

How could GOD let IT happen?

I am sure you have an IT

because

IT happens when we don't plan for IT~

because why would we want IT to happen

because IT isn't very good.

Do you have an IT in your life right now that you wish IT didn't happen?

And have you looked up with tears in your eyes and your heart

and said

BUT GOD?????

Oh wow, I didn't expect this to happen as I now have tears in my eyes

the moment I wrote those words~

"BUT GOD".

And I know why.

These are RECEIVING TEARS

as I see HIS tenderness

HIS compassion

HIS I am with you

HIS I will never leave you

HIS

I am here for you always.

Because GOD answers all of our

BUT GOD _______?

Because GOD is GOOD

so very GOOD

even when the IT isn't so GOOD~

"BUT GOD,

being [so very] rich in mercy, because of HIS great and wonderful love with which HE loved us, even when we were [spiritually] dead and separated from HIM because of our sins, He made us [spiritually] alive together with CHRIST (for by HIS grace—HIS undeserved favor and mercy—you have been saved from GOD'S judgment)" (Ephesians 2:4-8 AMP)

BUT is GOD'S GRACE enough in those moments

when the IT is beyond your comprehension

because IT is something that is so overwhelming

that IT feels like it is going to crush you?

Oh yes.

Because if it wasn't for

HIS GRACE

who would we be able to ask

"BUT GOD"?

What if GOD wasn't there

to absorb our TEARS

so that HE could fill us

with

HIS PEACE that transcends all understanding

and who

overwhelms us with HIS PRESENCE

because

even though

"________ (put your name) flesh

and _______'s heart may fail"*

there is an awesome promise that pierces your heart

despite the IT~

"BUT GOD

is the rock and strength of _____'s heart and ______'s portion forever" *(Psalm 73:26)

Oh I am not minimizing your IT,

because whatever your IT is

IT comes with deep pain and sorrow.

BUT if GOD wasn't my GOD

I would never be able to be standing today

because GOD is the only one who

can overtake all of our

ITS

while we are living in the midst of IT

because

BUT GOD

is

"BIG ENOUGH"
