When someone goes through a hard time, most of our attention is focused on how to bless and help the person through her trial. But the reality is, when you’re the one facing hard times, it can be difficult to receive help.
This is so true of our God. He is the Grand Designer who is molding and shaping and forming each of us. He is preparing us for eternity. Not one of us is the same…and we are fearfully and wonderfully made…in His Grand Design.
It had been a long, hard day and by now the toll of it was beginning to show on my face. I tried to hide it but my silence said more than I was willing. I figured if I didn’t say anything, she wouldn’t notice.
I make a career of waiting. I am a military wife–hurry up and wait is part of my life.
How do you handle being alone? I am alone a lot. I often wait for my husband to get home after 3 weeks away at a field operation or return from a 6 month deployment. I wait a lot. Add in being a mom–you know how that goes–and I pretty much have to wait for everyone. Patience does not come easily. I wait alone.
