Breakdown before the Breakthrough

“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NIV)

Recently I found myself in the midst of a sudden, severe and difficult storm. I had been persecuted, falsely accused and even ridiculed. I wrestled with feelings of resentment, anger and betrayal. With my eyes swelled up with tears and a heavy heart I whispered, “I trust you Lord!”

The storm did not end when I prayed that simple prayer. In fact, I still find myself within the storm, but I remain confident in knowing that my steps are ordained by the Lord—For there is almost always a “Breakdown before a Breakthrough!”

I trust you LORD and I stand believing that everything that you have promised me is already mine–and I will hold onto the hem of your garment during these trying times. Thank you for the victory!

In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. 🎉 🎊🎉
