I have had some very specific requests lately and they are obviously not "according to His will" because nothing is happening. Sometimes I just get so stinkin' weary with this here thing called life.
I can totally relate to the Psalmist who says, "...my soul has had enough." (Psalm 88:3)
Why can't everything just "work out". I would like to order the comfortable life, please.
I suspect the comfortable life has no need for God. I feel sure I wouldn't run to Him if everything was all "peachy king".
I have had conversations with my girls this week that I wouldn't trade for the world...or even for the comfortable life.
I have felt the sweetness of communion with Him.
Though my troubles feel BIG and my "soul has had enough"...
I have not suffered to the point of shedding blood.
These trials are producing in me a steadfastness that only He can bring.
And so I will take this here life...
however He sends it.So thankful to truly know the hope, and faith, and rest, and trust that comes with a life lived in Him. I don't really want to do life any other way.
