Calling All Company Girls – Is it Due Season, Yet?

Click the Coffee Cup to visit!

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.  Galatians 6:9 (NKJV)

Although the Company Girls will be visiting today, I just want to thank all of my readers and visitors – again – for your comments and thoughts when you leave them.  It is appreciated and I enjoy our interaction.

Can I tell you that I just feel beat down?  This week has been full of difficult things.  Intermediate Algebra being one (and I’m not joking when I ask for all of you to pray for me in this battle against algebra – a required class for my degree…)

God has allowed my family to enter into a season right now that is hard.  Tough.  Painful.  Exhausting.  Fraught with questions.  Concerns.  Fears.

I first met it with great bravado and staunch faith.  And aside from my math frustrations and physical things – I would likely still be unwavering.  But I am tired.  And my body is weak.  And my mind is bogged down.

I don’t want to face the enemy.  I don’t want to face down the fearful predator that wants to steal peace and joy from my family.  I don’t want to have to be in the heat of battle.

What if I fail?  What if I can’t make it?  What if we lose?

Sometimes, I dig in my heels and use the tools God has given.

And sometimes, I lose heart.

But GOD IS FAITHFUL.

And His strength is like no other.  And He shoulders the burden with us.  He takes on the pain and bears the brunt of the enemy’s hot fire as it threatens to consume.

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.  1 Corinthians 1:9 (NKJV)

So, I have to learn to wait for the “Due Season” when the hard work pays off.  When reaping yields a rich harvest…  More joy.  More love.  More peace.  More God.

But I’m impatient.  I’d like the “hard stuff” to be over.  The good stuff to be here.  Due Season…

And then I heard this song speak peace into my spirit:

I will praise you in this storm And I will lift my hands.
For You are who You are, No matter where I am.
Every tear I’ve cried, you hold in your hand.
You never left my side.
And though my heart is torn, I will praise you in this storm.

I lift my eyes unto the hills. Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth…

I’ve been singing this song all week – and woke up singing it in my head this morning.  Although he may be asleep in the stern, He is still in our boat, and He is STILL Master of the Storm…  Your prayers for my family would be so appreciated.

    Sorry to hear things are great right now.

    Remember these Bible points that my little one learned from VBS this summer. God is with us. (Fear not!) God is powerful. (Fear not!) God does what He says He’ll do. (Fear not!) God gives us life. (Fear not!) God cares for us. (Fear not!) (The kids love the “Fear not!” part.

    Said a prayer for your family. Hope things will be getting better soon.

    The song you’ve referred to makes reference to a storm, and this week we’ve heard the term “The Perfect Storm.” Regardless how they look or feel … in Truth … every storm is a perfect storm, because they are all allowed/sent by our ALL knowing Father God for the purpose of separating the wheat from the chaff in our lives … burning off what is unproductive in our lifes, so that we may bear fruit … emptying us … so that we can be filled with Him. You’re not alone in this season of refining. We are all being called to humble ourselves in the low places, and to praise Him still … regardless of the intensity of our storms. I pray that God’s Will be done in your lives … individually and collectively! Keep looking up … this too shall pass!
    Love and hugs,
    Wanda

    I love your heart: honest and real and still faithful. The song you shared is just perfect, and the words are just what I needed to hear. We are weathering our own storms of fear and doubt at our house…I have moments that I just think I’ll never make it through. It feels kindof good to know that other sisters are walking by faith too, even though we’d like to be done with our storms (like yesterday), what you’ve share has encouraged ME! I’ll keep praying for you, that peace and victory will come.
