There's a light at the end of this tunnel

"The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves..." Zephaniah 3:17

The other night I was feeling pretty confused and sad. I questioned God and asked Him What he was doing? I stubbornly told Him that I needed "to know answers now". As I walked outside I realized that the sky was flooded with beautiful stars. I don't know about you, but stars are like twinkling lollipops that just call out my name. So I laid down and chilled for a bit, then I found a good friend and we shared some thoughts. Finally I began to walk back to my room- with more peace in my heart. Just in the corner of my eye, I saw a special sign- a shooting star flying right by. I praised God and was immediately reminded that Jesus provides; that He saves; that He loves; and that night when we need it the most, Jesus will always come through for us.

I have seen Jesus provide for me in many ways. When I was once very sick in Peru, he healed me. When I didn't have the words to speak to staff or a child in need, He gave them to me. When I suffered through not feeling God at all, he provided friends who led me to Him. I am reminded that my Father has ALWAYS taken care of me and that I have no reason to doubt His plans for my life.

Even though it sometimes seems like I am lost in a tunnel and I have no direction. I know deep inside my heart that I would rather be in a tunnel with the Lord of Light then in a hole with the deceiving Devil. I know that although God's ways are sometimes hard right now, that He will prove faithful. I know that God has his hand on my life (and I know that if you have surrendered to Him he has His hand on yours too). 

If you feel like you are in a tunnel, remember that Jesus is the light and that He will help you find the way out. Here's some lyrics to the song by Third Day.

"Well I won't pretend to know what you're thinking
And I can't begin to know what you're going through
And I won't deny the pain that you're feeling
But I'm gonna try and give a little hope to you
Just remember what I told you
There's so much your living for

There's a light at the end of this tunnel
There's a light at the end of this tunnel for you
For you
There's a light at the end of this tunnel
Shining bright at the end of this tunnel for you
For you
So keep holding on

You got your disappointments and sorrows
You ought to share the weight of that load with me
Then you will find that the light of tomorrow
Well it brings new life for your eyes to see
So remember what I told you
There's so much your living for

There's a light at the end of this tunnel
There's a light at the end of this tunnel for you
For you
There's a light at the end of this tunnel
Shining bright at the end of this tunnel for you
For you
So keep holding on
Keep holding on

So remember what I told you
There's so much your living for

There's a light at the end of this tunnel
There's a light at the end of this tunnel for you
For you yeah
There's a light at the end of this tunnel
Shinging bright at the end of this tunnel for you
For you yeah
There's a light at the end of this tunnel ooh
For you, for you yeah
Shinging bright at the end of this tunnel
For you, for you
So keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on now

You got your disappointments and sorrows
I'm gonna try and give a little hope to you"

I know that Jesus will provide and that He will bring you light =)
