"Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord."
Some words of encouragement from the scriptures this morning. :) A good message. Hang in there, and be patient... don't give up or give in. The Lord will make you strong enough to handle all of it... even today. :) Sometimes the biggest test of our faith and strength is in trusting the *Lord's* timing... he knows exactly when we have reached the point that we can't handle it anymore. He knows exactly when to answer our prayers and when to grant us blessings. His timing rarely coincides with our timing... but *he* has it right... just consider, even though I know how tempting it is to believe that we have the timing of our lives down perfectly, and we know how strong we are... just think about it for a minute... maybe God knows that we are stronger than we think. Maybe God knows of an even better possibility. God is leading us to glory and joy and perfection. Maybe we would settle for something less... but if we are patient, and trust God, and refuse to give up... we'll get to a better place than we could ever imagine for ourselves. I promise. :) God is *that* cool. :)
