There is a Light at the end of your tunnel
Where you are might seem dark right now…very dark. But, if you won’t give up and you won’t stop, you will make it through to the other side. I know because I have made it to the other side and I have been called by God to help pull you through your tunnel.
In the small town where I grew up, there was a one lane tunnel. In order to get where you were going, you had to drive through this tunnel; there was no other choice. You couldn’t see through to the other side and you had no idea what was approaching from the other end. As you would enter, it would be very dark and there was a sign posted at the entrance that said, “Honk as you go through.” In this way, you could give notice to another vehicle that might be coming from the other entrance. It would be kind of scary for a little while, but then you could see the light peeking through and you would take a deep breath and relax…safe on the other side.
A lot of us are going through tunnels right now. I have had the most horrific week, as far as battling in the spiritual realm, I have ever had. I have always considered myself tougher than any two men…But, I have learned not to quit, not to lay around feeling sorry for myself, and not to let depression overtake me. I have learned and been conditioned to rise and fight back no matter what, even when my body says “no.” In this way, the devil can longer win in my life. Every time God had something good for me, the devil stopped me. He was able to do this through instilling in me fear, anger, rage, and disappointment. He had me thinking I was not good enough for anything or anyone. On and on it would go. I have learned to pick myself up, dust myself off and start again.
We need to know one of the biggest tactics Satan uses against us is anything negative. He does not want you to have God’s best for your life. No one, and I mean no one, deserves to be blessed less than me. I feel like I am the biggest sinner there is. With saying all that, I have risen again to declare the works of the Father through my life. I have been called to be completely transparent with my life so you can know that if God can forgive me, He will forgive you. If He has brought me through the tunnel that Satan tried to stop me in, He can bring you through your tunnel…no matter what it is.
Dr. Phil and Oprah are fine but I am telling you that they cannot help you learn to get up the next day and face the hell that will be coming at you, no matter in what form it comes; but Jesus Christ can. A big thing I have learned is that if someone’s personal life is not good, why would you want to emulate (be like) them? Follow someone who is walking in victory not just talking victory. God will never let you down…ever. Learn God.
The tunnel won’t last forever but if you quit and run the other way out of fear, you will lose. I know it hurts. I know you don’t like it but when those factors are there, it is a sign to you that God has something for you on the other side. You might be scared in the middle, but honk your way through and you will make it to the other side. If I can overcome all of this hell, then you can too.
Is that you honking?
