One of the hardest things I've ever had to do, that I never wanted to do, I did this past weekend. Never mind that it happened right after a nerve racking flight.
Something that I learned this weekend was... well I actually learned a lot of stuff this weekend... but one thing was that when you are in control of the plane you don't realize things that the other people in the plane realize. For example when taking from runway 31R in Southport, Manitoba I couldn't tell that the nose was to high. It felt fine when you have ten other things you are supposed to be doing and thinking about. But when you sit in the back seat of the plane you can totally tell that the pilot is in to steep of a climb.
So it is with life. When I am in a hard time or even just in daily life, other people can tell things about me that I can't. Sometimes you as the person in the situation can't see what the big picture might be.
I know the pain of heart break. When you realize just how much someone means to you when you can't be with them anymore. It's hard. But I also know the God who knows the big picture and why things have to happen, for what purpose. He gives strength to get through it and he also knows exactly what you feel.
He knows how you cry yourself to sleep every night. He knows your deepest fears. He knows the pain you feel, and as cliché as this may sound, He loves you and he will never leave you. Even the rough patches have a purpose behind them. They are all apart of a greater and bigger picture the no human can know. In a odd way it is a great comfort not knowing the big picture. I believe we as humans wouldn't do to well knowing what was coming in the future.
God made us all with a passionate love that we can't even begin to comprehend. He desires that no one perish. So when life hits us with hard things. Things that we would rather not walk through remember this verse...
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
