Where was God when everything was going wrong? Where was God when I needed him the most?

Honestly, I thought this was going to be the easiest blog post to write but I was wrong. I called my Aunt and asked her for advice on this question and surprisingly she couldn’t give me an answer. I am going to try to  answer this question to the best of my abilities.

So about four years ago, I was at the lowest point of my life. I had just got broken up with and I was taking 21 credit hours in college. I can honestly tell you that point in my life really changed me as a person. I doubted God so much during that time. I couldn’t wrap my finger around the fact that he really let this happen. Looking back, the break-up had been a long time coming, but I stalled it as much as I could. I didn’t want to loose him and I didn’t want to be alone.

I wouldn’t wish a heartbreak on my worst enemy. A heartbreak is never easy for anyone. I remember sitting on my bathroom floor crying and asking God WHY?. Now that I look back on that season in my life I can see why God did what he did. I always thought that he left me because I focused more on my relationship than I did with my relationship with him. Well I can tell you now that I was wrong. Through those hard times God was more present that he was in the good times. He knew that I would need him more at during that time in my life.

I remember sitting at a coffee shop in Cambridge, England thinking to myself how amazing God is. He provided me with this amazing opportunity to travel the world and obtain my masters degree. At that moment in my life I realized that God isn’t to blame for all the bad things that happen in our lives or this world.

People tend to forget that there is good and evil in this world. God brings good and bad (what may look like bad to you is good to God because he has a plan). Then we tend to get bad things that happen which is created by the Devil but plot twist….. He doesn’t just send bad your way he also sends good.

It took me a while to realize that this is how the world works. At the age of 25 I have lived a life that I can write a series from. During those times in my life God didn’t disappear on me he was right where I needed him. One set of foot prints were all I saw in the sand but at the moment in my life he was carrying me. We tend to walk by sight and not by faith.  2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us “Walk By Faith Not By Sight”.

I learned to that letting go of the old freed my heart to embrace God’s new for me. (Tracie Miles). I choose God’s new for my life and he out did himself. I can’t image what my life would be life if I was still stuck in my dead end relationship. The world is full of good and bad but everything that you may think is bad is just God working in your life.

Do you remember the story of Joseph? Joseph went through so much during a season in his life. God put Joseph through so much. His brothers got jealous of him and sold him into slavery in Egypt. While at the slave market he was sold to Potiphar, which was the chief of police in pharaohs police force. His life wasn’t perfect but is could be worse. Well I guess I spoke to soon because then Potiphar’s wife wrongly accused Joseph of doing something wrong. Joseph was thrown in jail but God did all of this because he had a plan for Josephs life. Later on in the story Pharaoh had a dream and he asked Joseph to interpret his dream. We then realized why everything happened the way it did. God blessed Joseph life. God was there when Joseph needed him most.

I just want to let you know that during those most difficult times in life he is there. During those times when you no one else can do or say anything that makes a difference, during those times when it feels like God has deserted us, especially at those times God is in that place with us. He gave us the bible to guide us our hearts and our life. Don’t be afraid to open it when you need him the most.

So to answer the question – Where is God when you need him? Darling- God is right here … Right Now… Right With You. Trust in him. ❤
