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 us...to 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 victory...life 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!
