Have you ever had one of those weeks when it seemed like life was out to get you? I hope not because, let me tell you, they're hard on the soul. Yes, you guessed it. It's been one of those weeks around here. From malfunctioning appliances to neck and shoulder pain, it's been a rough few days. I'm frustrated, discouraged and overwhelmed. Not a good combination for writing an encouraging blog post, you know? How does one describe God's faithfulness while feeling that God has forsaken her? How does one apply Biblical truths that don't seem quite so true at the moment? Deep down in the recesses of my soul, I know what's right and what's true, but right now, there's not enough light to see into the dark corners of my soul where God's promises reside. I'm completely out of sorts.
That's why I decided to do something a little different today. Instead of writing a post, I'm going to share with you a snippet of good medicine I came across on Facebook this morning. I do not know the author of the following quote, but I appreciate her encouragement. The Lord knows how much I needed it today.
wants you to move through this day with a quiet heart, an inward
assurance that He is in control, a peaceful certainty that your life is
in His hands, a deep trust in His plan and purposes, and a thankful
disposition toward all that He allows. He wants you to put your faith in
Him, not in a timetable. He wants you to wait on Him and wait for Him.
In His perfect way He will put everything together...see to every
detail...arrange every circumstance...and order every step to bring to
pass what He has for you."
