Then Sings My Soul Saturday~While I'm Waiting

First of all, I am honored and humbled by whoever nominated me and Through The Storms of Life for Awesomest Blog Award. I can't thank you enough for this honor and you will never know how perfect the timing was. I have been praying, seeking, wondering and even, battling with whether to even continue to blog. It was more of a time issue or rather a lack of time and not as much of whether anyone read it or whether I make a difference in any one's life...I know you read it because you comment and the comments are always encouraging and uplifting. I have slacked off a great deal in my posts and there are many, many days that I just don't feel like I have anything to say. I have been in what seems like a very dry place lately.

The timing of the email from Amanda yesterday and hearing this song on the radio again yesterday began to stir the waters of my spirit.

I truly love this song.

There have been so many times in my life when I have been praying, praying and praying some more for God to intervene, answer or deliver me/us from the situation that we were in.

Many times, the answer didn't come right away...there have been several occasions that it took years.

The attacks of the enemy were vicious and one on top of the other...that took 7 years.

The lawsuit that we were served with...that was a 3 year battle, many thousands of dollars in defense but it was a faith building time in my life. I wouldn't be where I am today without the lawsuit. So, C and M...thank you for suing my family...God used what you intended to destroy created a stronger, more united front between me and Roger, anchored my marriage in our love for each other and our faith in Jesus Christ, I learned to depend solely on God for the answer regardless of which way it went, I learned what it meant to totally forgive someone and feel no anger, hate or animosity toward someone who wanted to destroy you, I learned and have honored my promise to God that in goes on and you thank God for the victory and never gloat.

While I was waiting...there were many emotions...tears, anger, disappointment, fear, joy, trust...but, through it all...I learned to TRUST IN HIM.

I am still waiting currently for Brandon to return to the Father and turn from his wicked ways. I have been given a glimpse of hope on several occasions but the true return hasn't happened yet. So, while I am waiting...I will continue to love Him, serve Him, honor Him, trust Him and that will never change regardless if Brandon returns to the Father or not. My anchor holds and God will never fail me.

While you are waiting for your answer today...keep serving, trusting, praising and loving the one who holds your life in His hands.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. My goodness, what an amazing testimony of God's love, deliverance and salvation!! He is SO good. I can't believe how much our lives are connected girl. We just finished going through something similar to your lawsuit a few months back. A year later and finances used, God has shown Himself strong on our behalf. It was something that truly brought me closer to the Lord and His faithfulness in our lives...

    Blessings and congrats on the award..a precious vessel was lead by the Lord to say,,'well done good and faithful servant'. The Lord wanted you to KNOW girl...He delights in you!!

  2. Isn't it amazing how God can use trials in our lives to benefit us. This is why Paul can say "Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice." Rejoice when good things happen, rejoice when bad things happen, because we can trust God to do what is for our
    eternal best.

  3. Your faith is very inspiring my friend. I love you, and I love this song.

  4. I absolutely understand about the trials of life. Thank you for sharing about how God has used some of your trials to strengthen you. I needed to be reminded of this.

  5. Never stop blogging...Every morning before I go to sleep(remember I work night shift) I lay down and read your blog and listen to In Better Hands Now, and no matter what kind of night I have had...God makes it better through YOU..........

  6. I truly love this song too. Perfect!

  7. Well, congratulations, sweetie! You deserve it.

    Awesome post to God's faithfulness. During hard times it's so easy to forget that He is working in our lives, using everything. Sometimes we just want the hard times to be over, I admit it. I know I do!

    But He is working!

  8. This song is so wonderful. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is wait on God, but oh, how we grow while we are waiting!


  9. You have alot to share with us Jenn and I personally would miss it if you stopped blogging. God is always faithful and His mercies are new every morning. :) -love, Laurie

  10. Thanks for the encouraging reminder. The song is beautiful. God bless!



Thank you for stopping by today and sharing your heart felt thoughts with me. As we ride "Through the Storms of Life" together, chances are...your situation is different than mine. However, we serve the same awesome God, King of Kings who is in complete control and it all belongs to Him anyway...He wants to give you the very best. Be encouraged my friend, God loves you!
