Yesterday was a tough day for Barbara, with lots of fear, self-condemnation, and speaking words of wounding to herself. It was distressing to see her regress into passivity and confusion after a couple of good days in the week.
For me, this is an opportunity to let go of my desires, hold on to the fact that God has a plan here, and to rise above my disappointment, distress and negative feelings. It is an opportunity to offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving and to choose to live the truth that Knowing Jesus is Enough for Joy. Faith flowers in the soil of difficulty.
Our Great Shepherd promises to make us lay down in green pastures. Our present pasture looks brown to us, like this picture, but in spite of how it appears, He is going to use it to nurture, deepen and mature us.
Please do pray for wisdom for us in how to cooperate with God in what He is doing. Ask that Barbara will reject passivity and words of wounding and to actively speak words of healing to herself instead. Thank you.
