five minute Friday ~ staying where You have me
I often wonder how long I'll be here….here in this season of heartache, where the pain never seems to dull.
I wonder when my heart will know more joy than sorrow, and when my smile is more often real than it is forced.
Lord, I used to ask you to take this cup from me–this lot that You have chosen–and yet, you haven't done so.
Instead, you've used this lot to show me how very deeply you love me.
I have to believe that you're continuing to keep me in place because you're not done showing me what I need to learn…..
And so Lord, here I will choose to stay, without a fight and without question, because I know your ways are good and that my times are in your hands.
