This last year I spent lot of time being really mad at God. I fought Him and I yelled at Him and accused Him. There were times I thought that this relationship I think I have must all be in my head. I prayed and begged and pleaded. All to a ceiling in my house. The prayers bounced off, and the heavens had a sign that said, " Move on no prayers answered for you." That was how I felt. The emptiness in my soul was a wide as the Grand Canyon.
I think the best lesson I have learned in 2012 is that " I must trust God---my times are in His hands. His timing is never late."
The verse I claim for 2013 is this from Isaiah 58:11
The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
Thank you for reading my words today. Thank you for being with me through this year of my life. I think 2013 will be a year of relinquishment for me. It will be giving up and opening my hands of all that I am so that when I was young and God would bless us with one more baby and I would think I couldn't do it one more time and somehow I did. How little did I know that He had so much more in mind than I could ever dream.
He took my life and He restored all of the years the locust had eaten and He continues to give me more than I ever deserve. When I looked at the photo, I saw what God has done with a very unwilling servant. Just think what He could do with a willing one.
I wish you blessings and peace and joy and love in 2013
