Sometimes it feels like the hurt will never go away.
Sometimes it feels like I will never get beyond my past.
Sometimes I feel paralyzed by indecision and fear.
Sometimes I feel strong, and then I remember.
Sometimes I wish I could forget, but it seems my memory for those things will never fade.
Sometimes I wonder what if …?
Sometimes I feel that I am the exception. That all the promises were meant for everyone else.
Sometimes that is just how I feel.
Sometimes I remember those words, “For God so loved the world…” That includes me.
Sometimes I go to the Bible and believe.
Sometimes is so frustrating, but God is still God.
Sometimes can be so lonely, but God is always with me.
Sometimes I need to pray as the father of a boy whom Jesus healed did “…I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief!”*
Sometimes is not the answer, but God is.
Here’s hoping you can move from living in the sometimes, to living in the knowledge that you are loved, that you are forgiven, that God has a plan for you and that God is still God no matter what you feel sometimes.
