We finished our conversation a few minutes after I read these verses and I have not talked with her again since.
These three verses have been put on my path over and over again since that conversation and as I continue to meditate on them, I know that my eyes have been opened to something powerful.
Today I sat down to read the chapter for the woman's study that I attend weekly. We are doing a chapter book written by Stormie Omartian called "The prayer that changes everything.. The hidden power of Praising God".
As I read chapter eight which reflects on how good
God is. I was quickly reminded of the end of the phone conversation I had with my dear on the phone that wonderful day.
She said: "Jen - I have come to a place where I now understand that the Lord deserves all of my praise even
in the hardest challenges of my life. I choose now to say, Thank you Father God for ..... (Anything bad that happens)
because You know all things and I do not and Lord Jesus you are so GOOD
It may take me longer than it should, but slowly my heart is coming to the place where I can feel safe to Trust Him even when I don't understand. He makes ALL things beautiful, in His time.
Lamentations 3:25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.
