This afternoon is a little different than yesterday...for yesterday was full of hope; but now, the tears fall, as the pain increases. I sit and ask God...have you forgotten me; but yet somehow...deep down, I know He's still there.
This past hour has been a time of many questions...like, "Why the pain?"...and "Why am I afflicted once more?" "How is it that I overcome one thing in my life...only to enter another?" "What are You trying to teach me?" "Will I ever experience a time in my life, when there is no pain?"
Lord...let these tears become a language, from my heart to yours. Come to me and bring peace, in the midst of this turmoil. Help me to know that you are at work...and that you haven't forgotten to fix what's been broken.
Help me Lord, to not focus on what is attempting to take over my mind; but instead, help me to just sit here quietly and patiently trust You for your best. You have made so many promises to me in my life...and You have kept every one...throughout every hard and difficult time. I guess it's time to wait on You...knowing that You will once more keep your word and deliver me, from all this pain.
I love you Jesus...please help me to remain faithful to you, as You have done for me...so many times in my life. You are GOD...and one thing I know; this pain will never have the power that is contained within yourself. Lord...keep filling my thoughts with words of encouragement...and wrap Your loving arms around me and keep reassuring me that You are there.
Thank you for the talk Lord...I'll be waiting for your response!
Love your daughter...Diane
