In life, we all go through a pruning process. God will prune our lives so that we can bear much fruit. To “prune” means something is cut away, something is removed. In other words, maybe a good friend that you counted on moved to another city. Maybe a business shut down that you were connected to, or a relationship went a different direction.
Friend, God knows what you need in your life in order to grow and flourish. Sometimes when things happen that we don’t understand, we have to just trust that He is working behind the scenes preparing you for increase, preparing you to go to another level. Don’t put a question mark where God has placed a period.
When you’re going through transition, don’t get bitter. Don’t get down and think it’s the end. Don’t start thinking that you’re a failure. Have the attitude, “God, I let this go knowing that it was only temporary provision, and what You have in my future will be greater than what I’m letting go of.” If you will accept the change and stay in faith, God will open new doors. He will bring new opportunities, new friendships, and take you to another level of His glory!
You had this amazing way of shutting out the world when you felt down. But as much as I admired that, I knew the danger. I knew how shutting the world off had damaging effects, long-term.
How being numb meant you didn’t feel the love that whispered at the nape of your neck, the joy that rained on your skin, the peace that filled your lungs.
You’re not wrong for shutting out the world when you’re down, but you miss out on so much more when you allow them to win.- Dae Lee (Daeizm)
