I'm excited today.
Last year was a real downer for me: moving, knee surgery, rehab, physical therapy. I gained weight, which was the biggest downer. Since then I've felt old and negative (my daughter was right), tired, grumpy--really in a deep funk. I've talked to God about it--more like whined--but nothing seemed to change. I went to bed tired and woke up tired, didn't want to go out of town. I've been huddling in my cave.
Again today I talked to God about it. I asked Him to give me something that would get me out of the hole so I can, at least, make the effort to lose weight.
He did it. Why am I surprised? I'm not quite sure how it's all going to work, but for the first time in about a year, I feel like the cloud has lifted.
What I really want to say is this: God is faithful. He isn't so concerned about our "outsides" but He's really into what's going on "inside." If you have something you've been praying about for a long time, hang in there. He hasn't forgotten and He's not answering. The time will come. Wait on Him.
Have a wonderful day!
