It is what it is. Just like me, I’m sure you’ve said that before. I can’t change it, I can’t fix it or do anything about it…it just is what it is. Even as a Christian, I find that some things I go through I cannot change it. I’m sure you’ve heard someone say, don’t say you have a headache or don’t say you’re having pain…don’t claim it…don’t speak it. The truth is, if I have a headache, admitting the obvious doesn’t mean I don’t have any faith. Jesus said, “Ask And You Shall Receive.” If I’m not suppose to say it, how do ask for healing. Lord, you know that pain that I’m not saying I have…would you take it? Lord, and that problem that I’m not struggling with, could you help me with it? I know I’m being a little facetious, but let’s face it, for some things in life, it just is what it is.
I’m not saying this to discourage you today, we just need to understand that in this life we’re going to deal with challenges that we will not enjoy. I have personally been healed, but I’ve also had to go and see my doctor and yes, there are certain medications that I have to take. Does that mean I don’t have any faith? Absolutely not. It is what it is. As we age, we all go through certain seasons. Those things cannot be changed. Sometimes we expect things to happen, other times we are hit with the unexpected. Do I lose it when that happens? I do not. It is what it is.
One thing I try to remember as I face different challenges in life. No matter what I’m dealing with, I am still a child of God and I have a promise of life beyond this earth. Nothing I go through here can change that. I refuse to let my pain separate me from God. I am still His no matter how bad the storm is. I am still the apple of His eye even in the midst of this trial. I am still filled with His Spirit and this battle cannot take that away from me. I am still anointed to do His work, no matter how hard things are right now.
Here’s what I’m saying to you today. No matter what you are currently dealing with, it does not change who you are in Jesus. You’re still everything He said you are. You’re still strong, even if you feel weak. You still have purpose, even if you feel unimportant. Your steps are still ordered, even though you feel lost.
This is what we have to understand and believe.
“It Is What It Is, But I Am What I AM!!!”
