Yes! For me it is so hard to just wait on the lord however, it is one of the best things to do. I know we want to have things done at our time but, he will. Work it out better then you or I could have ever done. I have been going through something very hard for a while now. However, I really do believe that God is going to work it out. I do believe that I have to lean on him. I have to wait on him.
You may be asking so what are you doing while you are waiting on him. I do pray, try to read my bible as best as I can. I talk to him even if it is crying out to him to have it all stop. Giving him the glory in the thick of it all. Telling him is the best thing I think anyone can do. I am even praising him while it is going on. Letting the devil know that he has no place in my life. This storm is hard but, my god is going to work it out for his glory. I cannot tell anyone how or when this storm will end or when there storm will end. BUT I can give words of how my Lord is going to work it out. What I do know that this storm will end and Jesus will be the one that I give the glory too. I feel each week when I write this blog no matter how many people read it. I do know even if only one reads it and gets something out of it than it is what needed to be done. Somedays I think I am also just writing it for me. I cannot tell a lie. I do feel that as I do write this blog. It is not perfectly written each week but. It helps me as well. I have to read my own words back to myself not because I do not believe what I am saying but because I need to hear it again. I pray each week as I put words down on the computer screen that God is working through me for myself and anyone that reads it. If you are having a hard time with anything in your life right now. Please! Know that God is real and he hears you. Not because I say so but because it is proven in his words. Let’s pray his words back to him.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Today as I do so each day I want to thank you for everyday no matter what I am facing. I know it is all going to work out for your glory. I want my readers to know that you are real and true. That you know why each one of us are challenged with a storm at some point of our life. I do believe it is to bring your children closer to you as we grow. We need to see that you will always work it out for your glory. That the Devil has no place in our lives. Also so our testimony to others of what you have done for us. You will do for them. That if they do not believe that all they need to do is see you in us. And, want that for themselves. As we pray today I want to give you back your words about timing and waiting on you to work it out for your glory.

Yes father as my cup over flows. I will gladly wait on your hands to work in my storm. I know that I will give you all the glory for it all. I thank you that we can see it in your words what you will do for us as believers (your children) as we wait on you to get us through this storm. We love you and thank you for all. We know we are sinners and are thankful that your son died for us. To show us grace. For what we could not do for you.
In Jesus Name Amen!
