Why does it seem like Monday's are the day of blah? Maybe it is because Saturday and Sunday's are filled up. For me Saturday is the day of cooking & copyright class. Sunday is church.
Speaking of church, yesterday my pastor said, "It's a great time to be a Christian because people are searching." He followed up with, "God's never late, just wait." I couldn't agree more!
In my life right now things are changing, I need to remind myself "God's never late, just wait." Sometimes it is hard to keep that in mind though! A lot of cliché phrases came to mind... "When God closes one door, He opens another" and "The best is yet to come." They are both true, we just need to take them to heart!
As I sat down to write this post, I began thinking about my Hope for Tomorrow quilt. During the quilt along, I was able to share a lot about my Hope. People are searching and desperate for something. Just yesterday I heard about two people who committed suicide. This past year has taken a toll on all of us in some way or another. Financially, emotionally, spiritually and with our relationships. I'm not sure anything is the same as it was prior to March of 2020.
I think I will close this entry with this thought... regardless of how desperate you might feel in this moment, the situation will change. As a Christian, even through the roughest of times, I knew the LORD had me in His arms. One might be thinking, well you don't know how it feels to have suicidal thoughts. Actually, I do. That was one of the scariest moments in my life. I felt so desperate, full of loss and pain. Yet, I sat on my knees cried and prayed... and prayed... and prayed. I begged God to let me feel Him. I needed to feel His presence. He answered that prayer. I can't explain the peace He brought me. I literally felt as if He was holding me in His arms. Maybe that sounds crazy to you but that is what my Hope can do for you too. That week doors closed, but as my preacher said, "God's never late, just wait."
Maybe you are going through a rough patch financially, emotionally, or within relationships... remember, "God's never late, just wait."
