Psalm 37:7 begins with " Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him" as well as Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God".
If you have our first two cookbooks you may have read that I have an auto-immune arthritis. Living with chronic pain has significantly changed the way I do life and He has given me the grace to accept that. Right now I am in another time where chronic pain is my constant companion with little relief.
I find myself in a season of waiting. I have prayed and prayed, not only for renewed health, but for another burden that weighs heavily on my heart and it seems that God is silent. I don't know how or what to pray for anymore, all I can do is wait. The beauty in all this is that He has given me Peace in the stillness and the waiting. I know He hears my pleas and will carry me through this season with His promise that He will not leave or abandon me. It clearly is not in my timing but I must learn to rest in God's perfect timing.
Do you find yourself waiting for God to answer your prayers?
Isaiah 40:31 says,
"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
Then let us live in the hope that the Lord gives us as stated in Romans 15:13, this is my prayer for us all.
"May the God of hope fill you will all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Amen
