Sometimes we find ourselves in the mire of life, fed up with struggles and anger and strife. We find ourselves aching for a guiding hand, a note from God on where to go next. We rail and we whine because He only says not yet. Or, sometimes when we feel we need to make a choice, and He remains quiet, or only says “I’ll be here either way”, it can be so frustrating. That’s when we need to remember, not our will, but His alone.
The Lord will fight for you, you need only be still. Exodus 14:14
Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage, Wait for the Lord! Psalm 27:14
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
I’m sorry for those times I’ve yelled at you in frustration. I’m sorry my anger over rides my peaceful spirit. When I am waiting on Your timing, it can be so hard. And then You step in and remind me with this verse and others, that come my way when I least expect them from many varied sources. And I remember. You are watching me. You are here with me. When I pray and I demand answers, when I throw questions at You and hope You reply, who am I to be questioning and fired up by anger when You reply “I’ll be there”. When I want a specific direction from You, who am I to be frustrated when You tell me to stand still? Lord, take my heart and make it Yours.
Please please, Lord, help me to be patient until You remove these scales from my eyes, and allow me to see the truth. Please, Lord, remind me to give up the struggle and rest in Your Will, until Your time proves out. I am Yours to lead, wherever You send me, I will go.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
