I have definitely said that at times. And in many cases, it has helped me to process whatever it is that has been presented to me or someone I love…a little better.
The easiest way for me to deal with something out of my control is to think “it is what it is.”
But guess what? It really isn’t!
It isn’t what has been presented or what I may see it as. And it never will be!
It’s completely fine to think “It is what it is” if in our hearts we can know that “it really isn’t.”
Situations beyond my control become a little more bearable and understandable (I didn’t say they were easier) when I take the next step and fully trust God and cling to His eternal hope. I have learned to accept that God is the only one who sees what really is.
He is the only one who understands all the details of the masterpiece He is creating with our lives. And God uses every “it is what it is” moment that we face. He uses our every pain and our deepest hurts.
When we look to Him we can make more sense out of something that seems so senseless. We can cling to the promise that His plan is far greater for our lives than we could ever comprehend. We can move forward knowing that everything out of our hands is really in the best hands ever!
His plan is far too complex for any of our knowledge. It is much too beautiful for our eyes to visualize. Our broken hearts could never grasp how all the pieces will perfectly be mended together one day. How He works things out for our good will always be far beyond what our minds can understand.
But He is working!
And what IS really ISN’T.
Learn to trust Him with ALL of lifes moments.
Open your heart, mind and soul to Him.
Remember “It is what it is…but it really isn’t.”
