“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me: your love, O Lord, endures forever – do not abandon the works of your hands.” -Psalm 138:8
I find it comforting to know that David – a man who is recorded in the Bible as a man after God’s own heart – had struggles just like I do. How refreshing it is to think that I don’t have to have unshakeable faith to be counted among one of the faithful. Even David doubted. Why else would he feel the need to plead with God not to abandon him?
I relate all too well with David’s 138th Psalm. I’ve felt abandoned. I’ve wondered where God was in the midst of my circumstances. I’ve had to remind myself time and time again that God truly is the God who interrupts, redirects, and fulfills my wildest dreams.
You may be floundering in confusion, wondering what exactly your purpose is for this season of your life, but that’s okay. We serve a God who holds eternity in the palm of His hand, and He will be faithful to fulfill His purpose for you.
I just wanted to let you know that your blog has really helped me focus on Jesus and has pointed out some great truths I needed to hear. Thanks so much! You are one of the best examples of beyond waiting that I know. Keep it up!
And I just want to let you know that when I read your letters, I smile from ear to ear. I love you so much and am thankful that God elected to use us to encourage each other!
God is so good at thinking up ways to help His chidren that are totally abstract… I never would have guessed I would be where I am today. God’s ideas are always the best!!
