Summer here in Florida is always hard for me. Daily summer storms and low pressure cause me such physical distress. From headaches and constant nerve pain to pains in my feet and hands drive me crazy. Come the end of September, it will be 25 years of this body of mine beating me down. <sigh> Such is life.
I hate complaining. I truly do. It doesn’t help me, it doesn’t help anyone, so I mostly keep it to myself. Of course, in a moment of true weakness, I do let the pain get the better of me and cry out about it.
I have been waiting 8 months now on God’s plan. I’m not sure if I wrote about it; but while reading a book a couple weeks ago, the author asked if the reader ever prayed for “God’s Will”. I was stunned. I have prayed for discernment, I’ve prayed for the plan, prayed for understanding; but not specifically for God’s will. So, I found this prayer and did so.
The very next day, in my morning study, I received my answer, which was not just to dig deeper into God’s word; but also the name of the MAN who it would be, same man’s name that he has sent me from day one and every time I’ve ask for clarity on the man, I’ve been given the name as well as the nickname of the man. GOD IS GOOD!
I cannot, in my wildest dreams, have imagined such clear direction from God and such clarity in all of my faith walk. I am beyond blessed by this loving and gracious Lord. I look so forward to God bringing His plan for my life to fruition. Oh, how I long for my blessing from the Lord.
I love this man. I love him because the Lord has given him to me. I only long to get to know him so that the love the Lord has in store for me will solidify with who the man is. I know he is a good man. I know he is honorable. I know that he is kind. I know that he has a good heart. Now, I need to know the “day to day” ins and outs of the person he is. Only time will tell, in God’s perfect timing.
I have dug in deep to the word of the Lord. I love to do so. I love to read it and study it. I thank the Lord for His part in my life.
