Just as true as it is to say, “waiting is a part of life”, sometimes you just have to be told by someone you admire that, “it’s not your turn”. Heather Thompson Day is that friend and her new book is called It’s Not Your Turn: What to do While Waiting for Your Breakthrough.
I wrote this as a reminder for myself and for my family to see God’s hand through this. God is still faithful and He is still a healer.
Loss, pain, and heartbreak are very much a part of our broken world. That is why Christmas is so important to our family, even more this year
Right now, in the messiness of ministry, life is hard and my heart hurts.
I found myself more overwhelmed than I have ever felt before. Not overwhelmed as I should be, “praise God” He has provided abundance. Overwhelmed more like this, “Where is everyone else? This is hard work and no one else cares. If I stopped working would anyone care? Will anyone care anyway?”
Maybe I am even more amazed by what God didn’t allow me to do. How God didn’t let me serve where my heart wanted. How God closed ministry opportunities that I thought had finally arrived. All because He loved me enough to grow me into who I am now.
Trust isn’t based on your feelings. That is a good thing when you have become so numb that you cannot feel anything anymore. Trust believes that God’s love endures forever
