Today the word is Long.
Long... "Mom, how long till we get there?"
Long.....how I long to be ____________ (with a person, at a place, with God)
Long....How far it is from one place to another.
This week has felt long. I've been sick for most of it.
It has made me long to be better.
My son has longed to be able to get out and do things.
Everywhere we have gone (as there where things we needed to do regardless of how I felt) has seemed to take such a long time to get there, or been such a long way to go.
BUT you know what one does when one longs to better or be someplace or be with someone?
One is patient.
One is persistent.
One is at peace with where one is at.
At least that's what one should aim for.
It's what God calls us to.
Be patient and persistent and at prayer at all times and in all situations.
He calls to us to look beyond ourselves and our own needs and to the needs of others.
And through it all to find joy.
I have to admit.. .Joy is NOT where I've been at this week.
I've been working at just being patient and at peace as I struggled with not feeling well and with a hubby who is starting to not feel well too.
BUT God is good and he brings us through it all.
And he will provide healing to these bodies of ours.
And in that... I can find joy. Indeed I can. :)
So let us, as we long... find that joy.
