Oh, how I needed those words today. Psalm 10 vs 17."You hear, oh Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry."
I needed to be reminded that the Lord hears me when I cry! When it seems I cry out and no one is there, He is there and hears me. I am so comforted by that. I pray you will be too.
Just when I think I have quit questioning "why", the doubts and fears surface and there I am again.... wondering..... I honestly don't understand why "we" are sick. Why bad things happen to people. Why life throws curve balls that hit us squarely where we live.
But as I read that today, I am reassured that while I may not understand, I am not alone in this. God hears my cries and sends encouragement to me. I am so very thankful for that.
I still have pain and severe fatigue. I still have knees that need replaced and feet that need surgery. My circumstances have not changed, but my attitude has. I will rest and reflect and know that in His time, I will be better. I will do my best to focus on Him and what He has for me to do. Not on me and what I can't do.
These days in the midst can be long and hard. Seek Him and know that while we don't understand now, someday we will. Praying for you today.
