A season of drought

Sometimes, God doesn't do what we want. Sometimes, we pray and pray and He doesn't seem to answer. Sometimes, we are supposed to be learning patience and perseverance. These times can be some of the driest, most barren in our lives and hard to endure. I am in one now.

Even King David had these times....

Hear my prayer, O Lord,
Listen to my cry for help;
be not deaf to my weeping.
For I dwell with you as an alien,
a stranger, as all my fathers were.
Look away from me, that I may rejoice again
before I depart and am no more. (Psalm 39: 12-13

He learned patience and perseverance...

I waited patiently for the Lord;
He turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the Lord.
Psalm 40: 1-3

I am waiting on the Lord.

I am in the middle of a drought also. I am doing my best to wait it out. Trying to remain positive through all the negative, have patience and not be crabby with my kids, have even more patience for my husband. Yes, it is hard. But, we can blog with each other to help us through these rough spots. All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well. JULIAN OF NORWICH (hope I spelled it right).

I have had droughts before, but 2 years
ago I went into a deep depression since
I am bipolar (Manic-Depression) and now
I am waiting for my next manic up side to
cycle back.
I am praying that God will answer your prayers.
