How Long ...

Have you ever wondered how long the storm will last and will it ever pass. I must say that I have and I do. Yesterday was a day at home due to the snowfall in our area. It was kind of a lazy day with the hubs. But I did read over in Psalms 13 several times and found myself asking God How Long...

I don't think it matters what the storm is. For some it may be cancer, or cancer of a spouse, or it may be a storm of finances, or it could be difficulty in a marriage, or family difficulties, or a storm at work. I think the list could go on and on. And what is one persons storm may not be for another one. But as I thinking about and asking God "How Long" for this or for that... He showed me that it does no matter the "How Long" and that is not to be important for me to know, that is HIS to know. He begin to show me that the key is in the latter part of Psalm 13.

Psalms 13:5-6
But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

So no matter what I am going through or you are going through the answer is in these verses and how long we go through anything really does not matter because we are a child of God, and I can rejoice in that. Really that is enough to Praise Him for from now throughout all eternity.

In, With and Through Christ
