A few days ago, I received a little piece of news.
O k a y
A big piece of news.
It’s been a bit more difficult to process than other things have been,
but with a lot of help from God, my Creator, I am on my way to coping with the news.
W h i l e
… I adjust to this new “information”,
this song springs to mind tonight.
While I am waiting and processing my new reality of a health situation, I need to be deliberate in what I am doing in the midst of it. I wanted to share this song with you all. May it encourage you, as much as it has for me. It guides my heart in specific things I need to do, in this season of adjustment.
I need to be:
- Worshiping my Creator.
- Serving God and others.
- Focused on eternity.
- Remain confident and steadfast in my walk with Christ.
For me, it points me in the direction I need to head toward. It is easy to enter a standstill period when we receive news that shock us. It is easy to get sidetracked. I am desiring to focus on what is eternally up-building tonight. Each day, this may look a little different.
It means removing distractions, so I can focus on studying the Word of God. I love to study His Word, but I rarely get to study as much as I would like to. I have several studies I am in the midst of working on, and now’s that time to begin seeking Him in His Word. He knows my struggle right now, and is my ever-present help. He provides the comfort each of us need.
“I’m waiting, I’m waiting on You Lord – And I am hopeful,
I’m waiting on You Lord – Though it is painful,
but patiently I will wait.”
