He WILL hear me

I woke up today knowing it was time to start focusing on my relationship with God.  I have been mad, really mad at him lately and when I am mad I ignore him.  That is NOT what He wants and I know that, it is just my way of coping with my pain.  Yes, I understand that I need to seek Him during my pain along with my joys but I have a hard time with that.

There has been a lot and I mean A LOT going on in my life the last few weeks.  Some joys, some pains but mostly me just walking through life unaware.  I just go through my daily task as if nothing is wrong and do what needs to be done.  I don't do more to lift my spirits so I just walk through life in a daze.

Today that will change.  I started reading a new book called "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young.  It is a daily devotional and I was hesitant to start because obviously it starts January 1. I figured I need to stop making excuses and just start so I jumped to today June 21 and this is what it says..."Wait patiently with me while I bless you"  

Hello slap in the face!  He is telling me to be patient.  Yes I believe that 2 years is being patient but that is not a long time for Him.  That is very hard for me to do when I want something so bad but I know that He is watching over me and He is planning it all out in His timing.  Do I wish His timing was sooner, yes but I know it is always right.

"But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me." Micah 7:7

I HAVE to believe the He WILL hear my prayer and He WILL bless me with a child.

So I leave you with the newest addition to the Schafer family...Hank!
