Psalm 27:13-14 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!
Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!
To choose to see your grace in the days that are long and hard is no easy task, Lord. To see the beauty of the Lord in the land of the living-my every day living…be that my prayer and my heart. Jesus, you are beauty-you make all things new and good for those those that are yours. I am chosen and accepted by you. Lord, you saw it good that I learn the beauty of waiting for your glory to unfold in the life of my family. This waiting
and temptation of worry is so very hard when I know where my children are, but they can not be in my arms for months. Jesus, that is hard. Forgive me for the days that I fight against your plan for my life. Turn my eyes, mind, and heart so that I may grow in godliness & holiness & Christ-likness. For you waited for me, even though you chose me before I was born. Give me eyes to see your purposes. Grant me grace to fully live as we wait and pray. Fill our hearts with courage and help us to rest in your strength.
