Rebel to Redeemed: Seeking God’s Will
My bed of roses had turned into a field of hay. I may have been in God’s will but life wasn’t as rosy as I wanted to dream it was.
The devil was fighting me at every turn and I struggled.
I began to earnestly seek God’s will. I prayed hard for those at work that were giving me a difficult time. I didn’t know why but God did. I saw him remove some individuals from the situation, while allowing the opportunity to work out the situation with other individuals.
There were circumstances in this situation that I did not feel had been handled fairly, properly or in a Christ like manner. There were a lot of questions that were “swept under the rug” and not answered. I really struggled with all of this and found myself constantly seeking God.
In time He gave me peace about the situation, even though it was not what I longed for. However, God also showed me my strengths and capabilities. I began to blossom, come out of my cocoon and I was starting to fly.
I wasn’t sure why situations happened as they did, but God knew. I was about to discover that His ways are not our ways.
