Send Me a Hurricane

The last two months have been very stressful…emotionally draining…confusing…and painful for me.  A lot has happened in my life.  And God has taught me many life-changing lessons.

But…amidst all these feelings, it has been beautiful…amazing…encouraging…inspiring…because I serve an awesome God.  And He knows the plans He has for me…plans to prosper me and not to harm me; to give me a hope and a future.
As I was thinking about all that has transpired in the last couple of months, these words came to mind.  God has been teaching me so much lately and this describes it all so well.

  2. Hey Raquel :)

    Don't think I've ever commented before...sorry! But I ALWAYS read every single post :D
    I'm just not much of a commenting person, lol!

    But just wanted to say 'hi' :)
    And tell you that I understand what you're going through...or, should I say, also been going through stressful, heartaching, emotional times :)
    God's been teaching me SO much, and showing me His will in so many things! It's been hard...but He's always faithful ;)

    Love that pic, it's so true!

    Praying for you :) *hugs*
    You're not alone ;)

    Blessings,

  7. I pray that things get better for you, Raquel!

    When I'm going through hard times, I like to listen to "Blessings" by Laura Story. The song is really touching because soon after she was married, her husband had a stroke. And it inspired the song. I really recommend listening to it! :)

    In Christ, Emily

  11. Raquel, I understand! God has sent me hurricanes--and it was really hard for me to trust that he was going to bring me out--but he did and he brought me back as a strong servant.

    It's 100% worth it--hang in!

  12. Hurricanes are tough but God uses them to show us how weak we are and how strong that makes him! For his power is made perfect in weakness ;)
