…and because during times such as these that it is often laughter that gets one through a storm I sent her this:
We all, at one time or another, will fight a battle or experience a situation that seems impossible. So, yep, Winston again. (I adore him and his can do-don’t quit attitude!)
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have been knocked down. Not just to my knees, but FLAT OUT! I could only get back up on my knees and pray. Hard. Sometimes prayers were answered the way that I wanted them to be answered. Sometimes God had other plans and honestly there were times it made me mad! But then… a few days, a few weeks, months or even years passed by and I would have the “A HA” moment and I would be SO thankful He answered my prayers His way. And yes, there are a few areas that I am STILL waiting for an answer.
Sigh. I wish I had more patience. I’m not so good at the waiting part. But I do believe this.
So to everyone that is thinking about giving up…don’t.
Hang in there and pray without ceasing. Beauty and goodness awaits. He has promised.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” ~ Joshua 1:9
