Lesley,
This is beautiful! I love that song, especially the line, “You’ve never failed me yet.” When I am in seasons of waiting and praying for outcomes, I look back over my life and can see how God has brought me through the valleys and has never failed nor forsaken me. His answer to my prayer may be different than what I would have projected, but therein lies the challenge to trust His faithfulness beyond our circumstances. Loved this!
Blessings,
Bev xx

We never know what the outcome will be, but even if not, we will continue to believe and keep pressing forward. Lesley, you have captured the soul of the Christian faith well.

“Even if not …” That’s where faith grows deep, isn’t it? So hard for a person like me who wants to read the end of the story (good or bad) first. Wonderful post, Lesley!

We’ve had a couple of waiting issues this year, and another that lasted for years. Sometimes the tension pulled taut as I prayed for God’s answer. I had to keep reminding myself that His will and timing were perfect. It’s such a relief when the answer finally comes. Yet sometimes it doesn’t come as we had hoped. Yet He is still good and faithful.

Tension is an apt word for that tightness we feel and experience, Barbara! We will forever be able to say, “He Is Good and His Love Endures Forever!”

But even if he does not…that scripture has resonated with me for years. Sometimes the healing, the deliverance, the gift doesn’t come like we want, but even then, God is faithful. Thanks for these reminders, Lesley.

I love love love this post and that fact that you led with Read this scripture BEFORE reading the blog post. I did just that. Lovely! As someone who struggles with mental illness thank you for shedding a small spotlight on that too. Merry Christmas!
