Fear and trembling have come upon me; Horror has overwhelmed me. And I say, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest.

Psalm 55:5-6

Christ knows your situations and circumstances. Don’t let them interfere with who Christ says that you are. You are His Child. He understands how you feel, but running away and hiding behind a new location, new job, new church etc… won’t solve the underlying issues. The grass is not greener somewhere else. We need to learn how to work through where we are right now.

Nothing going on in our lives right now is a surprise to Christ. He did not just find out about everything that we’re going through. Christ sees all of it. He sees what choices brought us to this place and He sees us in all of it, including our joy and sharing our experiences with others to help them grow as well.

We cannot hide behind a shelter, but need to step out and grow our faith by taking on our circumstances head on. Trust in Christ. Even though we may look behind ourselves and see nothing there, trust that Christ Is. He will not let us fall, but will catch us into His loving arms. This is the time where our faith becomes more than words, but actions as we learn more who we are in Christ. Take the stand and step over the line and believe.
