“…There are times when we…do not know which way to turn. It may be just then that we shall learn for the first time how to stand still in perfect peace and quietness of soul, not idling away our time, not hopelessly limp and heedless of the outcome, but working on in such ways as may be given to us, observing with eager joy the way in which God will work it all out to a perfectly glorious ending.”
Great writing by a woman I truly admire-Elisabeth Elliott. Even though she has passed away, her writings are still a big source of encouragement and help in my seasons of waiting. Please read full blog here, Be Still, My Daughter
..let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.
-Hebrews 10: 22-23
This is the anthem of my heart right now. Couldn’t find a better song to express my gratitude looking back! Even in my darkest moments last year, God still allowed me to stomach down this one song. I have a long way to go but His word commands I continue to persevere and not give up hope.
Oh Lord, I pray You make my faith unshakable and pleasing in Your sight. May my faith not be dictated by circumstance or pressure; may it be consistent and always reminded of Your promises. And when I stumble, may I always be reminded of Your faithfulness towards me. May these words not return void to You. I know its only by Your grace, compassion, and mercy that I can persevere in my walk with You but I know also that I too hold the keys to being victorious. May I faithfully do my part. May the year 2017 be memorable and sweet! May You do what only You can do. In your beautiful name I pray,
