Three and a half years in waiting and the door opens.
Not everyone would consider an operation a gift, but for us, it is a long awaited door and the beginning of a new day. We almost can’t believe it, we’ve waited so long, everything hinging on this day and as Christmas approaches a sigh of great relief falls from our lips.
Waiting Resting Expecting
It’s a slow mend and with it comes more emotion.
I left him on that table yet again and the tears of relief wouldn’t seem to stop. Then the nagging thoughts of ‘will this make any difference and what about the risks?” I can’t even think about that. Hoping for the best but fear the surgeons words might be true ‘this won’t fix any thing, it will only make him safe’. He shows us the irreparable damage and the stark truth screams at us, but still we believe.
Why do we continue to hope after all this?
BECAUSE HE DELIGHTS IN US
I can see Him coming to our aid like never before. He’s angry with the one who has tried to destroy us. I’m crying and I realise I need not fear.
My Rock – My Fortress – My Deliverer – My Refuge – My Shield – My Salvation – My – Stronghold – My Saviour – My Rescuer – My Supporter – My Holder – My Strengthener
HE HEARS ME AND WHEN HE DOES HE’S ANGRY, HE’S POWERFUL
The earth trembles, quakes and there’s fire coming from His mouth, smoke from His nostrils. The heavens part and he’s coming on the Cherubim to help ME just like he did for David.
PICTURE IT – I DO AND IM HUMBLED BY HIS POWER. HOW COULD I EVER DOUBT THAT HE’S HAD THIS COVERED ALL ALONG JUST LIKE HE PROMISED?
Rain and Thunder as his voice booms out.
He shoots arrows and the enemy scatters, gone, they run they scour as bolts of lightening chase them. The scene is pandemonium but we’re on the winning side. No fear here.
AND THEN THROUGH THE CHAOS, GENTLY, HIS HAND REACHES DOWN FROM ON HIGH
We are so frail, fickle and oft times faithless.
Why is his heart moved to help us?
BECAUSE HE DELIGHTS IN US, I’ll say it again
HE DELIGHTS IN US
I believe it.
