Daniel 3:17 NKJV
“If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.
The tunnel is the place I have been for more than a year; naked, cold, and separated from others. It’s a place where I learned to trust God more and more. He provided for all my needs and kept me from harm.
The tunnel was a place I could not avoid, no matter how much I may have wanted to do so. At this time, I was reminded of Jonah. Just like the fiery furnace and the lion’s den, the tunnel is not here to harm me but to prepare me for a better place. At the end of the tunnel, like Job, whatever was lost will be replaced tenfold. So, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF YOUR TUNNEL!
I am now walking up the steps to get out of the tunnel…HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!
After my mom died a year ago, I have felt as if I was drowning in an ocean of unknown. I did not know the next steps to take after completing one journey. The journey of unknown was paved with pain, anxiety, self-doubt, grief, loneliness, and struggle (esp. financially). Nevertheless, I had a very good friend that accompanied me along this journey; the Holy Spirit. Even though I went back to the beginning where I had nothing, He comforted me and told me to REST. He provided for me daily in every way. I have also learned to float by relaxing my body despite the being in the ocean. Consequently, I am at peace with the way things are because I know it is part of God’s plan for me. He is setting a foundation that will never be moved as the appointed time for me to be called into the office from the waiting room draws near. When He calls my name, I will no longer float on the surface of the ocean BUT I will be walking on water with my eyes focused solely on Him. At that time He will be taking me from glory to glory.
