i am one who truly believes that god answers our questions and prayers. Certainly not always the ways we want or as fast as we want, but He does always answer. Even silence is an answer of some sort, perhaps silence means “wait for Me, trust in Me.”
I found this heart cry to God in one of my older journals and I just love how quickly He answered me.
You will dance again
by: Carole L. Haines
Can I just laugh, Please Lord. Does it all have to be so serious
and groaning and battle and warfare
I want to dance again, Lord.
I want to laugh and sing and enjoy life
Can I only grow through pain? Can I not be refined by laughter and melted by joy?
And the Lord answered me and said:
“The Lord appeared to us
in the past saying:
“I have loved you
with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness
I will build you up again…
And you will be rebuilt
Again you will take up your tambourines
And go out to dance with the joyful”
Thank You, Jesus, for always meeting me right where I am and speaking to me there!
He has answered that prayer and now I find myself dancing in the joy of How our God works it all together for good.
what an awesome God we serve. I love You, God. thanks for loving me first, loving me to yourself. Loving me into wholeness and transformation. You are truly good all the time.
