Coming To The End Of Myself



I have come to the end of myself. I have grown tired of all the questions clouding our life. I don't know what direction to move and I am tired of searching. Moving forward is for sure but I have lost the desire to manipulate or control the situation. I only have a burning desire to be right where God wants me to be.  This storm has tossed us into a desperation only to linger to a dull roar where we have come to the end of ourselves. It is here where we have found peace in the midst of the dark skies and rest in the arms of our Heavenly Creator as we wait ~ expectantly for God to show us our very next step.

When the winds began to blow and the skies turned dark we were fearful but not now. We have desperately turned to our God and gone deeper in our faith. We are receiving a new and fresh manna for each day and just for that day. Before that made us fearful but now we only ask for what we need to get through the day and for strength to shine in the darkness.

Every ending has a beginning. We certainly see the ending and wait in faith for the next beginning. God has allowed this road bump in our lives so we would look only to Him and allow Him to guide us day by day. It may seem uncertain to us but He knows just what He is doing. He has traveled this journey before us and He has the plan to give us a future and a hope.

So today ~ while I wait this is my prayer.

Psalm 25:4 Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.

You are the first post I saw when I clicked on Blogger. I understand the place where you are. I know what it's like to wait in the hallway for a door to open. I know what it's like to be in and among the unfamiliar. I know what it is like to desperately get to the end of yourself. I find it is there that God meets us in at our deepest need. Prayers for you as you embark on new territory and say goodbye to the old. Yes, we are still there in some ways. God bless you and hugs and prayers.

What a proclamation of Faith, this is where I have been and want to be. You have always been such an encouragement to me!.

Oh yes I too can relate ... I have been trying to adjust to our recent unplanned move overseas which I have had a hard time embracing and then not knowing when we will move back and some health issues on top of it. But God is faithful and we can trust Him to provide what we need at the time we need it. I am a planner but I am learning that in life you just can't plan for everything. And uncertainty is always around us wether we choose to admit it or not. These little mottos are encouraging me now...Trust God more! and Joy is Now! ~Love Heather

I think God waits for us to get there, then he says...."Ok, now I can do the work I've been waiting to do."

Nothing but Him. That's where we need to be.

Praying for his blessings over you :)
