Having an injury or illness mandates much waiting, much stillness, much hoping and praying. I am truly seeing what it is to wait for the Lord, to wait to see the mounting up with wings like eagles. In my oh-too-human moments, I doubt and fear and fret. But it is a promise….people who wait upon the Lord shall and will mount up with wings like eagles, we will walk and not grow faint. A promise, a sure hope. And that brings me past my human self for a time, to see the bigger thing that God wants me to see. He’s there, He’s always with me, He never leaves me, and He will carry me through. So thank you, God, for the waiting. It’s been good. Blessings to all of you who are also waiting. Slainte, Lisa
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” ~Psalm 27:14
Yes, and amen. After 11 surgeries I can definitely relate to those moments . . . Next Monday I go to the VA for an evaluation to see about a disability rating increase. Please be praying for the Lord’s will in this. I continue to lift you up my friend! ❤
I will definitely pray for you Jennifer…Thank you for always being such an encourager. 😊
The sermon yesterday was on this exact topic and verse! So much growth and drawing closer to the Lord takes place during times of waiting. Love you!
I love it when God is saying something…you tend to hear it several places…😊 love you too!
Wow, Lisa! I don’t know which was more inspiring: Your amazing message on waiting and hope in the Lord, or that beautiful picture of the eagle, flying high in the clouds! Thank you for lifting me up on the wings of that soaring bird. God bless you and be with you tomorrow for your appointment.
God’s blessings to you also, my encourager and prayer warrior!
Whoah, so much truth in your post, Lisa. I am still waiting too. Had my four month xray and my fusion is barely beginning-a little disappointed-but at least the screws and rods were all in place. So I keep waiting. I’ve been off work almost five months and my Disability Insurance just ran out so I’m going to try to get back to work Mid March with the Surgeon’s approval. Gotta love the pressures of mortgages 😉 I am put in a position where I am looking to the verses you referenced above, for the Lord to renew my strength at the right time. Thank you, Lord.
I pray that He will also come through for you in a wonderfully healing way 🙂
Peter, I’m glad the fusion is starting, but I know you must be frustrated waiting. Praying right now for amazing patience and hope to head your way, and for solid and complete fusion. I’m going tomorrow for xrays to see how the ankle is. We can’t, but God can. Thanks for writing.😊
This would make a good Facebook post! I’m praying for you at your appointment today!
