Love God Greatly : Waiting On The Lord 

You Are Forgiven Bible Study 

I hung up the phone with Joan after sharing my story, and for the first time in several weeks God had filled me with some joy. It was painful having to face the reality of what was taking place in my life, especially after thinking God had brought my marriage to a place of restoration. I sat in my car and just praised God for the opportunity he had given me to share my trust in him. I thought,
“God, if one woman reads my story and decides to fight for her marriage and to choose to wait on your guidance before making a hasty decision, then my pain will have been worth it.”
That day I didn’t know what was going to happen.
My marriage seemed to have hit a place where it couldn’t be fixed. I was angry with God. I felt as if I had done everything he had asked of me. I felt he knew I would take my husband back, even knowing that in 10 weeks I would be left devastated. My life at the time seemed to be worthless. Everything I held on to was shattered. I felt completely lost. The next 6 months God led me through the hardest season I had ever faced. I didn’t understand why; it didn’t make any sense to me, but I chose once again to wait on the Lord to show me what to do.

    Have have thought about the thing of waiting on the Lord versus getting out there and taking action. Sometimes, you need to just get out there and do it but then there are times where God has definitely said for me to wait and my work situation has been like that since my health flared up two years ago.
    My Mum suddenly developed acute back pain last weekend and is in hospital and this really is a situation of needing to pray but needing to wait on the Lord and trust in him to work it out and there’s nothing glaringly wrong. It’s much more complicated.
    I have to remember to pray for my Mum and put her situation in God’s hands and the doctor’s. I am also trying to shake off that sense of being hit in the head by a brick and keep breathing. You know what I mean. Bless you and thanks for sharing xx Rowena
