08 Mar The painful lesson of patience
Such an encouraging text from a dear brother. God is indeed my source of comfort and help. And God is sovereign. All I want to do is repair, but God has a different plan and He has a different timeline from me.
I’m so often tempted to worry, but God has it all under control. Maybe I’ve lost sight of that and too often wallow in my doubt & worry. He understands that.
Help me Father God to come back – to bring my mind back to you. May Your will be done, not mine.
Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield.Psalm 33:20
How can I heal a wife with a broken heart? I am certain I have alot more to learn. But how can I show repentance?
It’s been wonderful to focus on God, and have contentment in Him. But I wish sometimes He’d just reveal His plan to me – even just a peek. Even just a “Here’s a brief timeline for the next 6 months.”
Until then, I’m going to stay on my knees. I’m going to pray focused tonight.
I’m back on after praying and wanted to read up on 1 Corinthians 7:
10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.
I don’t know what to do with that verse.
