It's been too long!!!

It's time for me to start blogging again...not because I lead an overly exciting life...but because God allows me many opportunities to see Him working! Seriously, each day I see an answer to prayer!  I either receive an unexpected blessing, I meet an amazing person or God puts a special Bible verse in my path that is perfect for me in that moment.  

Today for instance...

During my prayer time...pouring out my requests to God 
{some repeat requests, that God and I don't seem to be seeing eye to eye on!} I opened my Bible to the book I started reading last week...Lamentations...these verses JUMPED right out at me:

"I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall.  I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.  Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, 
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;  
GREAT is your faithfulness.  I say to myself, The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;  it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.   It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young.
  Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him.  Let him bury his face in the dustTHERE MAY YET BE HOPE.   Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him, and let him be filled with disgrace."
Lamentations 3:19-30 

God gives me what I need when I need it I have experienced this many times, I wish I could just remember it every second of every day, but instead I often doubt that God is listening...but He is!  

My hope is that one or more of these stories will encourage someone's walk with Christ {{THEN}} I hope to read your stories of how God is working in your life!!! We need encouragement from each other to move forward in God's world!
