But I know I will be.
I am going through a difficult and challenging time in my personal life right now. I won't go into the gory details because 1) the internet is *forever* 2) it's too much 3) I don't think it would be beneficial 4) as much as I feel like verbally (& literally) vomiting right now--it would not be honorable to give in & do so.
I covet your prayers as I can barely pray for myself & my ktbunch, much less for the situation at large.
I stand on the truth of God's word as my foundation and I know it is as firm as the rock the man built his home on, when the storm came. (Matt 7:24-25)
I know that although I may feel as if the situation is hopeless, God's word of truth, tells me it is not. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off. Psalm 23:18
I do not like the current situation I am in, it is very uncomfortable and a challenge but certainly not impossible. It takes a lot of energy to believe a situation is impossible. Even if things don't go the way I would like, I trust God. I trust that He has my best interests in mind. (Jer. 29:11) And I love the rest of that verse even better: Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. Jer. 29:12
I know I can endure challenges in this life because God has warned me that there would be challenges and given a blue print on how to handle them when they arise.
I know that I can remain who I am in Christ, a royal heir. Therefore, situations do not change who I have been created to be. other people can not change me, perceptions or misperceptions of others can not change me.
Even when I am all talked & cried out and I do not say it--I value your prayers...they mean a lot to me.
