The past couple days have been extrememly difficult for me. Just some relationship issues that I want to work out, but trying to figure out how to do that amongst the hurt and anger. So, last night I prayed that God would take control, let me stop worrying about it and work out the situation. I told God that I really wanted this situation to work, but ultimately I knew that He knew what was best for me. I asked for help to WAIT on Him and His direction. After that, I prayed that I would finally be able to sleep and get some rest, and of course, slept wonderfully and woke up completely refreshed.
Now comes the fun part...
This morning before work, I was taking a look at Facebook in an effort to keep my mind busy, and came across a verse that Nicholas Butler had shared.
"Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for theIt was exactly what I needed to hear to start my day. Then, in another slow moment I was peeking at Facebook again and found this status update from my friend Jennifer:
Lord." Psalm 27:14
"Jennifer is waiting on the Lord and I am hopeful, though it is painful,
that I will wait. While I'm waiting I'll serve. I will worship. I won't loose
faith. I'll move ahead bold and confident."
Again, I was a little surprised but totally comforted and encouraged that God was using Facebook friends to tell me what I needed to hear. It puts a huge smile on my face and gives me the peace to continue to wait on Him.
So for now, I'm waiting. I'm worshiping. I'm serving. I'm being strong and taking courage. I'm not loosing faith and moving ahead confidently knowing that God has fabulous things in store for me. :)
