“A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul.” -Proverbs 13:19
There are many longings that are running deep in my soul right now. I am waiting, waiting upon the Lord. May He make me faithful to Him, so in my waiting, I can look back once He fulfills my longings in the way He sees fit and see obedience and submission unto the Lord (and not manipulation to get my way!). I want to wait in full obedience. I want to never stop believing until the day He chooses to give me redemption and deliverance. And on that day, the longings fulfilled will be SO sweet to my soul. And there will be no regrets. No guilt. Only JOY.
My Hope is in Him. I know you are faithful Jesus! I know you love me and have good in store for me.
“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 20:11
Amen to that! I am so thankful we have a Lord who is SO GOOD and JUST and SOVEREIGN. He loves us so much. He sent His only son to die for us–one who was perfect and blameless…to die for us who are full of sin and in need of so much grace. He did this while we were still sinners! But, now we are covered with His grace and can approach His throne of grace with our petitions.
He is enough for me. His grace. His love. His comfort. His compassion. His provision. His heart is more than enough for me.
