Asking when complicates things. Patience is one area I lack; so, waiting for recoveries tires and tries me to my boundaries.
I wait for God’s complete deliverance for my mom. Seeing her fall so many times and then looking at her black and blue minefield of a back creates fear in me. Her confusion subsides only to be followed by another bout of confusion and forgetfulness of the recent events in her life like her surgery and the weeks following.
When will this trial end? When will I find completion and answers to so many prayers being sent up for me and on behalf of my family members?
I think I am on the verge of coming to a dawn when we hit another setback.
How do you find faith in difficult times? What verses do you cling to? Can you be patient for God’s when in your prayers?
I know God has delivered and seen us through each dark time. My mom’s falling and confused state; her surgeries and my own husband’s health issues, but I succumb to fear and doubt when another problem arises. My mom was supposed to go to rehab, but it is delayed. I hope it will happen soon; until then she remains in the hospital.
When going through stormy times, I find taking it one day at a time helps. Do not skip ahead. Face one challenge head on and then rest and prepare to take on the next.
Right now Isaiah 41:10 rings true in my life:
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
What scriptures do you cling to when you are awaiting God’s answers and help?

Rachel reminds us of the importance of showing the love of Christ to all in a very personal post about her experiences of loving her sister who came out to her. We may not agree with or condone the LGBT lifestyle, but Rachel points out that as Christians we need to show them the true love of Christ. This post is very thought-provoking.
