The Desert

A few months ago I was talking to my cousin Faith about seasons that God takes us through, and that no matter how hard we try we can not avoid a season. Right now I am in a desert season. Everywhere I turn heartache abounds. I desperately want out of this season, yet I know from past failures that when I try to escape it only compounds the problem. Right now I am memorizing Psalm 40 and I love the first verse. It says:

I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.


I will wait patiently for the next season to come, even though I am really struggling to do so. I will wait because I know that God will see me through because, as my cousin Faith says, He is kind.

Love to you all,
Abby

Hey Girl---sorry I have been MIA for awhile. I totally understand and might just be there myself. Love you and thinking about you!
