All my close friends who have read my book have been telling me “Kylie I would have never known you went through all of that; you handled it very well”. Time after time I would say yea it wasn’t easy and it’s only by Gods grace. I really want to stress to you how grateful I am that God does not allow me to look like what I been through! My life had some hard trials. There were things that I had to endure that I thought I was going to lose my mind if God did not step in. There were even times God stepped in and helped me, and I still felt crazy. Through it all though, I still managed to keep it together and keep a smile on my face.
It wasn’t that I was okay because I would cry at night. I fussed when people were not around and I did have my moments of complaining. The thing that got me through was God’s word and his promise that it was getting better. I know you just like me are or have been through some things, but us being able to continue to function should be reason enough to give God praise. God kept me through everything, and I never fell off the edge of life. I'm thankful I don’t look like what I been though.
Isn’t it such a relief to serve a God who covers you and keeps you beautiful even when you’re feeling ugly? Aren’t you glad God does not embarrass us and put our problems on front street for everyone to see? I don’t know about you but I'm thankful and I praise God for keeping me covered. It’s not that I didn’t have trials because I still do, but God loves me so much he deals with me in private so I can be strong and show the world there is no reason to be down all the time because our Father in heaven is working it out.
This week, I encourage you to stand tall and know it’s okay to feel left out or taken back by your trails, but understand that you don’t need to broadcast it to the world because God is handling your situation for you. No one needs to hear the negativity and see you complain about what God isn’t doing because in reality, he’s doing a lot for you behind the scene. Keep Calm and let him do his thing and stay in the race with nothing less than a smile.
I love you like crazy and I pray you have a good week! Thank you sooooo much for your support on God Set Me Up. It’s doing very well and if you need a copy get in contact with me ASAP!
