After the storm...

The sun is shining. The birds are singing. Blue sky dotted with billowy white clouds. The first of my storm clouds have passed with less threatening ones on the horizon. Bittersweet peace protects my heart and mind as I survey the aftermath.

Much has happened in the past month. Much of my anxious waiting has passed with it.

Eye-opening, Veil-lifting, Faith-reviving

Last week, after reading only the introduction from a book received free for my Kindle, my day began with the most positive, joyful, hopeful heart I’ve had in a year or more.

I was excited to continue reading and I was not disappointed. Chapter one opened my eyes, lifted the veil, and revived my faith. Confession of sin and remorse rose from within.

Waiting in The Wings

I wait…and I wait.

I pace rather than pray.

I weep rather than praise.

Waiting is hard work, but it seems to be the work God has called me to do at this time.

Z End

For the past two years I have been frustrated, guilt ridden, and overwhelmed by a project I began six years earlier. At one point another person volunteered to take it on, but found it more than they could do. So, it returned to me partially done but in a format I wasn't familiar (nor had the software). Basically, I had to start over.

Little by little I plugged away at it.

Joyous Pain

Pain can come in all types of packages. Physical, emotional, and even spiritual pain affect all of us at some time or another. Sometimes all at once.

However, the Bible tells us in several different places and ways that pain is a certainty. It will come. It will be hard to endure. For me, pain always seems worst when uncertainties come into play.

How we handle them is the proof of our faith.
