He was there when my mom got sick...and when she died. He was there when my dad was floundering and I had to be a mom and dad to my brother. He was there in the form of Wilma, my "other mother." He was there when I met my husband and He was there when we couldn't have babies. He brought us to South Carolina so He could bless us beyond my wildest dreams and give us Andy and Bailey...and He was there last summer when He called to me and said, "Be still and know that I Am." He's been holding my hand and walking with me through this journey and I've never felt alone.
He continues to lead me through uncharted territory. I don't like the unknown but I'm learning to trust Him because He is faithful. We have a joke in our family about me...I love to walk but I'm not a hiker and it's because of the unknown. I'll walk miles around a track or in my neighborhood but don't ask me to go somewhere I'm unfamiliar with. My family thinks that's so boring, but they've learned to accept my quirkiness because they love me.
His word says, "You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:13 NASB Whatever you're going through, He will be with you...every heartache...every tear...every triumph...He will make Himself real to You, but you must seek Him. It's as simple as asking.
Are you at a place in your life where you need healing? Maybe you need a fresh sense of His Presence...He is as close as a prayer away.
It's hard to explain the peace and joy that comes from true healing. That can only come from a power greater than ourselves...especially when you consider the baggage of more than 38 years. One thing I can count on dear friends, He will be faithful in all my tomorrows. He will be in the lines and pages of the rest of my story and only He knows when my days on earth will end. I'm so thankful He's given me the courage to write and share my heart. The unknown isn't as scary anymore. He will do the same for you.
O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You;
my soul thirsts for you...
I have seen You in the sanctuary
and beheld your power and glory.
Because Your love is better than life,
my lips will glorify You.
I will praise You as long as I live,
and in Your name I will lift up my hands.
