We all find ourselves living with the harsh reality that life is hard and life hurts.
We continually demand that life be fair, yet we’re well aware that it’s not.

Life can leave you at a loss for words. It has a way of suddenly casting you into the darkness of doubt. In these desperate moments, you find your soul being drained dry . . . you’re empty . . . and faith just doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Faith loses out when you realize that God could have done something . . . and He did nothing. Your life is further emptied when you realize that even if you live the “Christian” life, things don’t always turn out the way you’d like them to . . . and that’s not the way you hoped faith worked. You don’t want God to comfort you in your troubles . . . you want Him to take them from you.

As God continually frustrates our faith with His constant inconsistency and ridiculously draining unpredictability, we resolve in the truth that He is the only one that truly understands our hurting hearts, empty lives, and searching souls.

We find the ongoing trials of life continually draining us and . . . we’re thirsty.
Yet, through our endless efforts to quench our undying thirst, nothing satisfies.
Our souls seem to be insatiable, and we know we desperately need something to fill us, completely . . . but it’s not what we think.

You’ve been waiting for God to show up,
yet He’s actually been waiting for you.

He’s ready to meet with you . . .
one on one . . .
at the well.

God has been helping through a dark time recently by giving me comfort and strength. The scripture I lean on is Isaiah 40:31 but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
