Trusting and Waiting Can Be Hard

When we moved into our home in October of 2016 the previous owners had left  this lovely scripture wall hanging from Isaiah 40:31 on the kitchen wall.

I've been feeling a little anxious lately with not hearing from the doctor regarding Tim's  MRI. Tim doesn't seem to concerned about it. 
This morning while reading an article in Keepers at Home magazine the author wrote about her devotion time. She shared how she allowed her Bible to fall open( she says she never does this) and she just began to randomly read some verses from Psalm 119. She shared how the scriptures  was what she needed to read that day.
I have to admit I was having a difficult time concentrating so I closed the magazine. I noticed my Bible was still on the table from devotions this morning and picked it up. I decided I would allow my Bible to just fall to a page to see what would happen. Of course I felt rather stupid doing this but I figure why not? It opened to Isaiah 40:31: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not be faint.

I've feeling rather weary not just about Tim but just feeling anxious and maybe lack of trust that God will meet all our needs. I really need God to give me strength and to allow me to take baby steps towards fully trusting Him.

  2. Oh Regina, I feel the same way as you do about trusting God in all things. I've been feeling weary even about devotions.(And it's not just this oppressive heat ... 102 degrees in Phoenix!) I really like reading your posts, they're really inspiring to me!

    1. Thank you Carol. We have had 90° temps here. If you ever want to escape the high temps you can always come up here to slightly cooler Chino Valley.

  3. Now that was an amazing, “I am here with you,” moment wasn’t it? I get anxious often and have to remind myself of this verse. It’s actually one of my favorite scriptures. Wait and rest. He WILL restore you and calm your spirit.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  4. Learning to trust God can be very hard. I just finished reading a little book that is meant to be used as a devotional and the title of it is TRUST. It pointed out that when we aren't able to trust that it is due to some fear in our life. As I read through the book I realized how many fears I had hiding in me and how they kept me from fully trusting God for meeting the need in whatever area I was having fear in. Waiting can always be a bit fearful because it contains the unknown. Praying for you, my sweet friend.

  5. Oh, sweet friend! I can so relate to your anxiety. I surely hope you hear GREAT news soon about your husband's MRI. I dearly love that verse, too. It is so hard to be in the waiting room and not see a step in front of you. May God continually give you courage as you go through these trials. Praying for you and sending hugs!

  6. Sending big hugs and good faith. But if you are concerned, don't hesitate to follow up. I think sometimes doc's offices get so much stuff all the time that even if they have already looked at it, they may not have come back to you. Don't hesitate to call and ask if the results are back and when you will get them. Remember, they work for you and anxiety is sometimes worse than knowing. At least then you can be proactive.

    1. Thank you Jeanie! I'm going to have Tim call the doctor to get the results. He has a follow-up on June 5th.
