Our dark days are merely instructional phases, lessons hard learned so we can shoulder the burdens of others
When we share our pitfalls, we encourage others that bad days are normal and with God’s help, we will get through them. When you feel compelled to pretend that everything is perfect, not only are you not fooling anybody, you’re missing out on opportunities to help others navigate similar circumstances. And you’re missing reality.
While God doesn’t always resolve our concerns immediately, He always, always immediately responds. Some people get a speedy miracle, but some of us will have some boulders that He wants us to try to shove for awhile. And while we’re shoving, God is blessing us with opportunities, relationships, experiences and other miracles that strengthen our muscles and build our faith.
