After an emotionally exhausting week, I couldn't help but smile when I saw that sunset. I realized God had brought me through, just like He always does. It is often too hard to focus on the beauty of every trial while you are experiencing it. However, when you can see the beautiful picture finished and in its entirety, you cant help but feel His grace and beauty. He always has a plan and it is so much bigger and more beautiful than we could ever have imagined.
Remember, that there are beautiful endings to what would otherwise be dark situations. Pray for God to give you the strength and endurance to make it through to see your rainbow after the storm. The spiritual reward awaiting you is one you won't ever forget. God uses these trials and beautiful endings to give us the wisdom we need for our future. I would never want to replay any of the most excruciatingly difficult trials of the past few years, but I do know I am stronger and wiser for having gone through them. God has prepared my heart for things in my future that I am not even aware of. I am a better person for having gone through them, and I hope God can use my life as a testimony to those who may need encouragement.
Whether you are in a trial currently, or are experiencing the beautiful rainbow at the end; remember God has you where you are for a reason. You may not currently understand why, but what you can count on is that God is in control. He is the artist of your life, painting a beautiful ending and you just can't see it quite yet! You must have the patience and faith to wait until it is finished!
