Sometimes what we pray for--we don't always get. I won't say what I've been praying for the last seven months but I will say it's one of those BIG ones. You know the kind--the ones that wake you in the middle of the night and you need to talk to God right then. It's the kind that has you on your knees in the middle of the day when the tears won't stay put or the words in your head become too much.
But I'm waiting. I'm waiting with the knowledge that my Lord and Savior hears me and knows what it is I really need. He also knows when, where and how He'll answer even though I might have a few ideas of my own. But when that big day happens--I know I will have the most wonderful story of how God sustained me through a time I thought impossible to get through.
Sometimes that's where our best stories come from--from our own experiences with God and how he holds us up despite our circumstances. I can't wait to share more but for now I can say God sustains me . . . blesses me and cares for me no matter how my day is going and no matter what the world brings. Who else do we have to turn to?
