Red Sea moments

Today’s and tomorrow’s posts are guest blogs from Jonathan Pearson, an anointed young man whose posts I ran across on Twitter and I asked his permission to use here at Tablet Of My Heart.  He has deep insights from God’s word that I believe will bless you as they have me.

Life hurts.

It often seems like life is a series of unfortunate events.
When you think you’ve found the conclusion to one problem, two more pop up.
When you think you’ve survived one storm, another is on the horizon.

When you feel you’re growing, something tries to tear you down.
When you think you’re doing right, something goes wrong.
When you follow the rules, someone that isn’t reaps the benefits.

Life hurts.

It has since Adam and Eve in the Garden.
The Old Testament is filled with “Life hurts” kind of stories.

But also…

Life comforts.

Sometimes, life does have it’s highs.
Sometimes, we feel like we’re exactly where we were meant to be.
Sometimes, we find the good in difficult circumstances.
Sometimes, God does the unimaginable in what seems like the inescapable.
Sometimes, God parts the seas and allows us to walk through on dry land.
Sometimes, God drowns the enemy that has pursued us.

We all have those “Red Sea” moments in our life.
It’s these moments that we must remember when we’re facing a “Life hurts” moment.
You’ve always made it through.

Life hurts.

But, God has been faithful in the past.
He’s never let you slip away.

Remember the Red Sea moments.
