After the cold, harsh Winter,
Springtime is so sweet.
I find myself gazing at the colorful tulips and azaleas
in wonder and gratitude. Remembering…
After a long illness and weeks of recuperation,
health is so precious
and renewed strength so appreciated.
And after long, difficult years of barrenness
holding your own child is amazing beyond description.
It’s as if those endless periods of agonizing in prayer
only weave more splendor to the answer
when it comes.
George Mueller learned the secret of prayer…
that persistence that knows the Giver
and refuses to stop praying
until deep within his spirit he knows the answer.
Time after time
God proved Himself faithful to Mueller
and to countless others.
Today, many years later,
God continues to hear our prayers.
He always will.
Let’s not become weary in praying.
Pray on, my friends.
The answer is on its way.
Who deeply knows your heartache
is working in ways you cannot see.
Months of struggle
through the seemingly endless winter season
make the sound of the rippling brooks
I find myself standing and listening
drinking in the beauty.
My soul praising God for His tender care.
And those long days of weeping will
one day be turned to laughter and cheer.
Your God is faithful.
But you O Lord are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and abounding in love and faithfulness. Psalms 86: 15
No matter how you might feel today
no matter how long the wait
He is faithful.
