Great is His Faithfulness

These last two months have been an interesting season in my life. The season has brought many changes, ones I never saw coming.   My heart and mind have run thru a gamut of emotions:  grief, sadness, pain (physical and emotional), joy, peace, and confusion.  It has been dark and stormy full of questions yet sunny and full of hope and promise.

I decided about six weeks ago to separate from my husband and end my marriage. This was my no means an easy decision, but the best one to care well for myself and be healthy.   I walked away and felt grief yet more strong than I had ever felt in my entire life.  In the days that followed my separation I drew much closer to God. Sometimes overwhelmed with questions, what if this, what if that, all I could mutter was his holy name, Jesus.   Despite all of the chaos in and around me, I also felt an enormous amount of peace.  I truly began to know what the peace that passes all human understanding was.  I can’t explain it.

In the midst of this I also found out I needed a total abdominal hysterectomy.  I had been suffering for many years with pain during my monthly cycles but over the last two years things had gotten much worse.  I was to the point of being in physical pain all of the time, and was struggling to work and do the things I needed to do.  While I knew the hysterectomy was the absolute right decision for me, it was still a difficult decision to make.  More questions swirled in my mind. I knew that I would not be able to care for myself for a few weeks, and I was going to need help.   I prayed, and saw God intervene.  My mom and a friend of hers worked it out to be here with me.

Over and over again in the last eight weeks I have seen God move in ways I cannot explain or would have even been able to fathom in my human mind.   Nearly every single day something has brought me joy.   It has come in unexpected ways and been found in unexpected places.  I have seen the grace, mercy, and love Christ has for me, every single day.  I have had to take life day by day sometimes moment by moment, but have learned what it means to be able to do all things thru Christ who gives me strength.

One of my most loved scripture verses has long been Lamentations 3:22-23.  The unfailing love of the Lord never ceases!  By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction.  Great is his faithfulness; his mercies are new every morning.  I say to myself “The Lord is my inheritance therefore, I will hope in him.”

I don’t know what you might be facing in your life’s journey today.  It might be all sunshine and rainbows or like me it might be storming and there are more questions than answers.  Hear me dear one.  God loves you, he has your back.  Call upon him. He will answer.  Look for him in the moments of every day.  You will see the joy, the grace, the mercy, and the love he will show you.  He is faithful and I know that like the answers have come to me right when I needed them, they will come to you too.  Stay strong; remember you can do all things thru him.  He is your source of joy and all things.
