God is so super faithful, and I know that his promises are true! His words are true...they are life!
In my relationship with Jesus I have never known him to be unfaithful or his promises to be lies. Jesus has put so many dreams, ideas, thoughts, and promises in my heart...our heart... that it overflows. I am amazed at how he loves and cares for me and Jon. I can honestly say that if he calls me to the edge of a cliff and said JUMP Lisa...I would have too...compelled too! I have committed my all to him and his plan! I know that he has been faithful to catch me every single time in the past. Every step with him brings new adventures and challenges, but I would not have it any other way! My worst days now are better than my best days without Jesus! He is indeed the lover of my soul!
There is a promise that is so dear and close to my heart, and I know that my father will be faithful to bring that to fruition! However, the waiting is hard sometimes! You can become discouraged which is why it is so important to surround yourself with amazing friends (Warrior Chicks) to help hold your feet to the fire and keep you encouraged when it gets tough to hold on!
A dear friend sent this prayer/message today to encourage my heart...I wanted to share so you might be encouraged....
Jer 29:11 For I know the thoughts I think toward you, say the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
My prayer for you is to trust that God He loves you and you are his little girl that he treasures. I pray that the fact that this promise is not coming as quickly as you hope does not hinder those truths. I pray that this is not something the enemy can use to hurt you and make you feel rejected by Dad. I pray the Holy Spirit will comfort you and give you peace, and that you will feel His tangible prescence holding you today.
Psalm 5:11-12 But let all those who rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those who love your name be joyful in You. For You O Lord will bless the righteous with favor You will surround them as a shield.
Jesus help me to be patient and wait on you! Help me to keep joy at the forefront as I wait on you! Your timing is always right, and nothing catches you by surprise! Therefore, I know that you know better than I what the next great adventure for the Whittens will be, and I eagerly anticipate the journey!
I am not afraid...I was born for this!
