What an amazing time of year. Flowers..birds..sunshine..who could ask for more! We waited and endured and prayed and the long winter season ended. Isn’t that encouraging? God never forgets and never ignores the cries of our hearts. He will always usher in a new season..one filled with new life..hope and encouragement. Summer is a reminder of that for me. We are not forgotten..He is with us and He will come for us when we need Him.
If you are feeling abandoned or ignored..overwhelmed or under water..keep trusting Him to find you and to take you somewhere new. His eyes are on you..He is watching you and monitoring your heart. He knows us inside and out and He will not wait too long. His ways are so different from ours and His timing never matches ours..He deals with us in unique ways that teach us about Him. He challenges us just when we think we’ve had enough. He is like a cheering parent on the sidelines of the ballgame. He watches us and when we are up to bat He calls our name over and over telling us that we can do it.
As we stand there weary and worn out..the sound of His voice is music in our ears. Our Father..He created us.. He believes in us..He will take us out of the game when it is time. But first..we need to step up there and hit that ball out of the field..for Him!
“Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord (repeat)
Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint You won’t grow weary
You’re the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles.”
