Waiting with Grace
It's more difficult than it seems
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
How many times in your life have you heard that word? And how many times in your life have you been happy about it?
When God says “wait” it’s often even more difficult because He sometimes asks us to wait for months, even years. With the pressures of life bearing down on us, it can seem more than frustrating to wait on God’s timing.
Wait and do what? Wait and be how? The seconds grow into minutes, then hours, days, weeks, and more.
It's become glaringly clear that God is not going to instantaneously heal me and restore my bodily functions to normal without a period of time and a lot of work. So, even though I’m showing improvements every day, it’s painstakingly slow.
What am I supposed to learn though this event? I work hard at not asking Why.
I continually remind myself that God’s timing is not my timing. I know complete resolution will come but I have to wait. Listen. Learn. Trust. Believe. I know He hears my pleas and the prayers of my many fans and friends. The fact that I can type this with two hands, albeit slowly and deliberately, is proof that healing is occurring. Thank you Lord!
The path is slow but steady. I’m seeking the Lord’s wisdom for what is to come. I am eternally grateful for your financial support and your prayers, both are very important for all that is happening right now. I’ve been tackled from behind and blind-sided. The stress right now is very high from many directions, but I keep reminding myself to give that to the Lord too as I wait.
And wait. For His Grace and next guidance.
Wait with me as I renew my strength, so we will all run together and not be weary. Thank you. And thank you for your patience as I heal.
