This morning on the prayer line, I was reminded like Jacob, that I had to painfully and expectantly bury the love of my life. When Rachel was dying, she gave her son a name that meant “pain”, but Jacob renamed their son to a name that means “Good Fortune”. (Genesis 35:18)
No matter what season you are in GOD is there and you have to turn this season over to HIM to survive. Therefore, like Jacob I also decided to rename my season of sorrow and grief to a season of Blessings, Grace, Mercy, Faith, Hope, and Love.
Do not disregard you season of sadness or grief. Remember what greatness came from the children of Jacob and Rachel.
Although my soul is in pain
Although my heart is still broken
Although the enemy is still attacking
Although I sometimes do not know my direction
Although the loneliness and silence is sometimes anguishing
Although I still reach out to….
Although I have to visit a cemetery
Although it is still so very hard
I refused to give in to the enemy!
I cannot and I WILL NOT!
My love for GOD and my FAITH in GOD will never let me yield to the enemy!
Lord please continue to hold me in the palm of your hands.
No matter what this looks like to me on the outside help me to always see you through my pain. Even now Lord, I thank you that through the storms, in the eye of the hurricane, in the middle of the tornado’s funnel there is a beautiful calmness that reminds me that YOUR JOY and YOUR PEACE is just on the other side.
Help me to hold on to those moments.
Help me to remember this when I want to give up and be done!
Help me to continue to hold on just a little while longer.
Help me to know and remember that because of you “It Is Well with My Soul”
I Love you all!
Have a truly Blessed Day!
