I can't go into detail about what all is going on with us but basically the Lord is working on us. We are going through a season of waiting and simply trusting in God's plan. I know that all of us go through seasons where we are called to WAIT in peace and TRUST in God's Sovereignty. In fact, most of you are probably waiting for SOMETHING. Whether it's a big thing or even a small thing like finding out what gender your baby is. I am learning my fair share of what it truly means to trust. Right now I have this verse on my dashboard of my car, "The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him." Psalm 28:7
This verse is a constant reminder of how we are called to live. Sometimes I have to read it over and over and remind myself that I truly believe these things when I am having a down day but God is always good to quickly remind me that, His promises are TRUE.
Sometimes it's hard to go through seasons like this with a thankful heart. But I find that the days that I choose to look at all the positives and choose to be thankful for everything I end up having a change of heart.
I have read this poem recently on a few blogs; Blogs where girls are going through hard things in their life, things that I can't imagine dealing with. In what seems like my small insignificant trial this poem has brought me so much perspective and peace. I hope you enjoy it and will remember some of these promises when the "waiting game" seems to be too much to handle.
