Whew!! Another busy week of completing my work and depending on the Lord. Am thankful for a restful Saturday. I had eagerly checked my email hoping for a positive response of acceptance for a story I recently wrote but that didn’t happen. So back to the drawing board of writing and rewriting. Once again feeling some disappointment and wondering why? Also this is just one of many hurts and disappointments to come along. And I realize that I am not alone. Many of us start down a path in life hoping for success and a sense of purpose in what we do both in our professional and personal lives. And things just don’t go the way we think. Need to keep remembering that God does know what is best for each person. Through prayer, reading God’s Word, and obedience, I need to just wait and keep trusting in the Lord for all things and let him strengthen and show me the way in his good time. However, as I struggle, I must admit this is easier said than done.
Isaiah 40:31 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not grow faint.”
