Post-it note…

“Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to Him.

At the sound of your cry He will answer you.”

Isaiah 30:18-19.

Those were the words that set me on fire with anger that ravaged through my very core in 2001!

A 3″x3″ post-it note that was attached to a stack of invoices from an outside counsel to be processed at work…no name was signed to it except “Ref: The Bible”. Yet it was as if every angel, every Christian known, had pointed their finger at me and told me “He’s waiting for you to cry out to Him!”

What on earth had they thought I had been doin day after day, night after night? What did God Almighty think I had been doin? EXACTLY that VERY thing! Yet He was silent! He wasn’t answering! He was ignoring me, my cries, my pain!
Or was He?

Was He really silent?
Was He really ignoring me?
Did He not care of the pain I was agonizing in constantly?

Oh, but He did!!!

Of course He did…yet the one thing I was NOT doing in my crying out — surrendering to Him, His will, not my own!
Believe it or not, He knows best! He knows how our worst tragedy can become our turning point, if we would only choose His way through it!
Choose His way, I beg you!

Don’t choose the long, horrific path I chose! Choose to praise Him THROUGH your storm! He’s been through worse, just look at the cross!

I’m here and prayin for YOU!

I began my struggle with depression when I was 13 years old. Following my hospitalizations in 2002, doctors gave my husband no hope of my ever living a "normal" life. But God had another plan! Because of the hope made available to us in Jesus Christ, I now enjoy a life filled with more joy and hope than I ever dreamed possible! My relationship with God is stronger each day regardless of the circumstances I face in everyday life. You Too Can Enjoy a Life Full of Joy and Hope through Jesus Christ!
