Tackling difficulties and overcoming the challenges life serves up – by Dona Halliday

The journey to “suddenly” – It can all change in a moment

There is a journey to suddenly, a time of growth, transformation, readiness - then, "Suddenly"
Prepared for “Suddenly”

I really don’t know how it happened… I kept wondering if things were ever going to change — get better, you know? I was at a point of desperation, and just when I thought I could not hold on for another second, suddenly there was a knock on the door and my life changed completely…

I don’t know whose story those lines are from but I know that we have all longed to get that place of “Suddenly.”  That pivotal moment when our faith interrupts reality and we know it has to be something supernatural, a God thing, because just a second before suddenly occurred there was absolutely no evidence that things would, or could possibly even change.
A funeral procession, a grieving woman who had recently lost her husband now cries over her dead son, her only son, THEN SUDDENLY….
A grave yard for a home, living among dead people, clothes torn, restrained with chains, his mind and body no longer his own, THEN SUDDENLY…
A  church service, a woman who could not even lift her head toward heaven because of her crippled body — bent over for 18 years, THEN SUDDENLY…
He sits on the roadside, begging, blind, and crying for mercy, THEN SUDDENLY….
I don’t understand God’s timing, but in my own life I’ve come to appreciate the journey to “Suddenly.” That season of stillness, challenges, pressure, growth, change. I believe with all my heart that God makes the difference. He shows up in our circumstances, and with a word and a touch; years of graveside, crippled, blinded, churched and dead living meets the transformation of “Suddenly.”

Are you in a situation that desperately needs the God of “Suddenly?” Seek Him and remain steadfast in your faith.

gmom, I’ve prayed that God who knows what you need most and the thing that is best will manifest Himself in your life, suddenly.

I really believe I am to hear this msg of “suddenly” it coincides with a msg that I was listen to last night by Joel Osteen that, God never leaves us in a negative…, that he will never leave us at a point where his (work, purpose for our lives) is incomplete… Then you wrote “suddenly” when his purpose ( our faith that may sometimes waver) is interrupted by his “suddenly” for his work (purpose) wasn’t completed. God’s timing is always best. I’m at a point that I eagerly await my “suddenly”

Thanks Dona 🙂

J, the waiting period can be so difficult, but there is so much preparation, growth and a new level of intimacy with God that can take place as we wait. For when suddenly comes that’s not the time to get ready for it. I praying that God will open up doors for you. Take care, my friend.
