I have seen God do some pretty amazing things this week–both in my life and in the lives of others. He is faithful! We so often assume that He’s not paying any attention to us because He isn’t doing exactly what we want Him to do at the exact moment we want Him to do it. The better I know Him, though, the more I realize that He sees a MUCH BIGGER picture than I do–the whole picture, in fact–and He knows what I need way better than I do.
I’ve been praying for a few things for YEARS–big things to my heart. The reminders I’ve gotten of His love and faithfulness this week have been encouraging as well as faith-building. He hears me. He will answer in His way and in His time.
Lord, please give me Your peace and patience in the waiting. And let me choose Your JOY even in heartache.
