About ten minutes ago I felt exactly like this verse. I had that telltale lump in my throat and I willed myself over and over not to give in to despair. It was hard.
Then I remembered that God told me this afternoon in Jerimiah 33:3 through conversation with a counselor, that all I had to do was call to him and he would answer me. He also promised to show me great and unimaginable things. Sometimes when we read scripture it’s more difficult than we let on to keep going and keep believing in that proverbial light under the tunnel, to signal the end of our woes. It is even hard to imagine that that day would come because we want the troubles to end right now.
I’m running low on happiness today.. It’s OK to feel that way. What I’m not going to do is give up. My home is being ripped apart and I cry for help from God every day. I don’t know if this is part of my destiny but I pray that he helps me to get through this and discern life lessons from my troubles, Just so I can help someone out there. I have to be patient.. Because I have a long way to go.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.”
It is good to be patient.
