How are you really feeling?

Today’s Holy Spirit Love Note:

I am moving in all things for your good. All things, including those pieces that you don’t understand or that seem to make no sense at all. I am also moving in those occasions when promises seem unfulfilled or when other people let you down. I don’t will disappointment but I am working in all things, including disappointment.

Working for your good in ways that you can’t yet see or grasp but just because you can’t see how I’m moving doesn’t make me inactive. Feel your feelings yes, and trust me. Trust that when I say I am working for your good in all things, you can take me at my word.

When you’re faced with crushing disappointment, it feels like little comfort to know that I am working for your good, especially when coupled with the all too familiar and over-used phrase “when God closes a door, somewhere He opens a window”.

I allow doors to be closed yes but what if I didn’t actively close the specific door you’re struggling with? What if the door closed because of human endeavour? I can turn that closing to good of course but don’t run away with the idea that every closed door is by my design.

Yet again you’re faced with the glorious mystery of human free will versus my will. Today is not the day to try and wrestle with this mystery. Today I simply want to comfort and encourage you to keep putting one foot in front of the other, even when things make no sense at all.

Why? How? When? These are all questions for another day. Today is about being real with how you’re feeling. Yes, all of it, you don’t need to hide anything from me. Bring me all of it and let’s just be together in the frustration and the disappointment. I am working in all things for your good and that work begins right now by being honest together.
