It’s the truth. The longer we have to wait for something the sweeter it is when we finally receive it.
I believe that anything really good takes time.
There must be a period of preparation & method –
The ins & the outs, ups & downs
The whys & wheres –
And sometimes, most times, the reasoning eludes us
And we kick & we scream –
And we pray & we cry like we’ve gone absolutely mad.
Lord help us to let go & know that You alone are The Master -You alone know exactly how it will all come to be
And what is best for us & those we love most.
I’m so grateful for the pockets of victory & the growth I’ve gleaned in my own waiting along the way
For the deep-deep-down desires
In my weathered & weary heart.
I would not trade them for anything – no, not one thing.
Thank you Lord –
I will not give up
Some of you have been waiting for things for years.
Extending a warm hand to yours, I am your sister –
A-kin to your tarry.
Oh how I know the depths it can drag you to
And the heights that can be reached when we choose to praise God anyway.
That’s my secret –
It’s what pulls me through every single battle.
May you be encouraged right now. May you find great peace & joy in this season, albeit long as it has been. And may you find contentment that has no earthly sense about it at all – flat-out confounding the wisest among us. That’s the best kind. This is my prayer for each of you.
Much love y’all & hope-full anticipation for what’s coming,
