I mean, if you think about the idea of being able to fast forward through the tough times, the dark times, the kinds of things you think (at the time) you don’t ever want to remember, it sounds pretty great to hit that button and fast forward through that, right?
Some of the best times of growth, comfort, and closeness with God came in my life during times that were tough, dark things I thought I’d want to forget! I learned the lessons that have made it more joyful in life as I lived through a time when I didn’t know I was learning anything. I just thought I was surviving, and barely surviving at that!
God never wastes a moment in our lives. Each moment has benefit and purpose and even those bad things are promised to be made good for those of us who serve God.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to his purpose! – Romans 8:28
So, drop that fast forward button because this life is short enough! There is joy hidden in so many places that you would miss if you hit that button.
God is there with you…take it moment by moment. You’ll be glad you did when all you can think is how to find a rewind button for your life!
