A Glorious Unfolding

Hi baby-girl,

I just want you to know that everything is going to be okay. I know the future feels so unknown right now, and everything is shaking. I just want you to know that through all the change, through all the trials, through the entire unknown, there is one constant. Jesus; and His love for you. That is the one thing that will never change, baby.

This life thing is confusing and scary, anyone can tell you that. There are so many voices that will try to tell you right and wrong, and they’ll all contradict each other. The one voice you need to listen to is Jesus’. He’ll always guide you, darling. He won’t leave you standing in the dark. Yes, there will be seasons without clarity, seasons of waiting, of growing. But even then, there will be constants. There will be Truth to hold onto. There will always be a sign of the next step to take. Don’t hate the waiting, baby-girl. Learn to embrace it. Learn to trust Jesus through it.

When you don’t know what to do – stay where you are. Stay doing what you’re doing. Make time to seek God every day. Get still and listen to Him. Be obedient to whatever step He asks you to take – even if it doesn’t make sense at the time. But just stay. Stay constant. Stay faithful. Stand on the Truth that you know. Don’t try to make big life decisions or figure everything out in the chaos, just wait it out. Remember to keep your eyes on Jesus, not the wind and waves around you.

And finally, baby, remember where your peace is. Know that peace & joy don’t have to be dictated by your feelings. Know that God doesn’t have to be dictated by how you’re feeling on a particular day, or what your life circumstances are. He is the prince of Peace. Where He is, there is always peace. He is constant. He is unchanging. He knows the plans He has and He knows how to work them out. Everything in life might feel like it’s shaking but He never is. Keep trusting Him, baby-girl. Keep running to Him. Keep loving the people He’s given you, and keep seeking Him on what’s next. Look for the miracles in the moment; look for what He’s doing right now. And know that someday, it will all come together. It will be a glorious unfolding. He’s got this baby, He’s got you. And He’s never letting go.
