When life devastates us, God can handle our disappointment. If it’s not what you prayed for, not what you hoped for, or not what you expected. Tell Him it how much it hurts. Ask Him why? He expects it. Then, ask Him to help you through it and what He wants you to learn. If you ask, He will answer. God is FOR YOU and is working in the good and the bad, even when we can’t see it. He ALWAYS brings beautiful things from our ashes.
To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3 (NLT)
