The Plight Of Expectation

I am overwhelmed as usual at how good God is. I was telling a friend this morning who just got an answer to prayer that He never ceases to amaze me. It is so true.
No matter how dark it may get, or how deep the pit, He is faithful.
No matter how insurmountable the problem seems to be, or how far away a promise appears, He is right there.
In the wee hours of the morning when I am tossing around in the bed & thoughts are churning, He whispers to my heart to hold on. To not give up. Heartening me that something I am believing for is indeed coming soon. I realize His soon & my soon could be very different. And so I fight the urge to fear that it may be still years away. But there is truly no fear in love. No matter the timing, I have to trust it is perfect. Or my peace will wane. I have to have faith & keep my joy in check. It’s not worth it otherwise. Why worry at all over something that is out of my control?
Selah.
I know y’all have dreams too. Don’t allow the enemy to rob you. By landmines he may have planted unawares. God is greater still.
He is your vindicator. Your protector. And He will deal with the weapons formed against you – that is not your burden. Shake them from your shoulders & purge them from your heart.
God is lifting your beautiful head even now. He is the lover of your soul & will never, ever leave you.
Please don’t give up on the things you know God has promised you. Keep getting up with expectation. Every single day.
Proclaim out loud that you will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Proclaim your redemption draweth nigh.
Proclaim His Great Love for you & that His plans for you are good.
Because. They. Are.
They really, really are.
Much love y’all & much more faith-filled expectation of all the blessings to come,
Bonnie
O my God, I trust in You; let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me. ~ Psalms 25:2
