One of my new initiatives is to hear from my followers in a way that directly meets them on their journeys.⠀
On Instagram I encourage you to tag your posts with #unfilteredchristianwomen so I can see what everyone is up to and feature topics that they are currently thinking about or needing feedback on.⠀
My goal will always be to write a blog post each month on a topic from my own heart BUT I also want to make room for another post that same month directly addressing a topic found via Instagram using the community hashtag.⠀
This month I am featuring a post from: @thoughtsbytiffanie *⠀
I think Tiffanie’s post is a great reminder that things are not always going to look like we thought they would. But that doesn’t mean that we aren’t on the right track.⠀
My default can often be to think God doesn’t care about me. I’ve gotten better over the years, but if I’m not vigilant this can easily creep up on me when I’m going through hard times.
I love the two points Tiffanie highlighted:
You’re not being punished, you’re being protected.
You’re not being punished, you’re being prepared.
Nahum 1:7 is a good reminder of God’s protection:
“The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 is a good reminder of God’s preparations for us:
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”[a]—
the things God has prepared for those who love him⠀
