Confessions of a Pastors Wife ~ Walk it Out
An extensive study on prayer in the books. Pre-summer schedules had diverted our attention to longer days, gardening and busy stuff. It was no accident the final discussion was "relationships". Many of us identified with the challenges of cultivating healthy relationships.
Our final session for the season closed, we headed home but for me those few miles felt like a hundred miles away. Sleep couldn't come soon enough and yet it didn't.
Months of intense prayer over broken marriages, shattered friendships and disunity was taking a toll on my remaining sanity. Weary in the line of fire, I hadn't expected hell to break loose...
As I dozed off I could hear my mind screaming, "I QUIT! STICK A FORK IN ME. I.AM.DONE..." God, bring peace.
Motivated by circumstances to shut up and shut down, I retreated to a safe place for some R&R, time alone with God. Let me tell ya, He is not in chaos, He is peace.
His Word in Isaiah 54:10 reminds us "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the LORD, who has compassion on you"
Allowing Words ^^ from the Creator of the universe to marinate in the recesses of our hearts is the healing process. He brings peace to broken places, healing for harsh words and deep wounds because... HIS Word. HIS Promise. HE cannot lie.
Dear friends: seek personal revival.
