I came face to face with disappointment today.
I've been waiting on God for a year and a half now. During our lives, we often find ourselves (or get ourselves) in situations that only He can rescue us from. I am there now. I have full faith that God will rescue us from this...in His timing.
We thought there might be the beginning of an answer today. But it wasn't.
Scriptures that I am clinging to:
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him." -Isaiah 64:4
"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!" - Luke 12:22-28
"In this greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire- may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." -1 Peter:6-7
On how God teaches us through our children...
While disciplining my three year old today I said to her, "You will stay in time out until you begin to obey me."
And God opened my ears to what I said.
I realized that I feel very much like I have been in "time out" for the past year and a half. I have also had the tendency to resist obedience.
Areas that I need to be obedient in:
Truly seeking God each day.
Showing respect to my husband.
Modeling a joyful spirit to my children.
Anyone want to hold me accountable?
