Wait on God

There are times when I feel orphaned by God; thrown away and never to be found.  These past five years have been hard.  I lost my mom, my best friend.  Her death has put me in a spiral that at times, feel as though it will never unwind.  Hopelessness, depression, weight gain, loneliness, marital woes, and directionless are just a few of the words that describe my life. However, this morning, the scripture (Psalm 27:1) reminds me that the Lord is my light and my salvation. He is my strength. When I feel hopeless, depressed, lonely, and have no direction in my life, I can go to God.  He is always there to give me hope, lift me up, hold my hand, and guide me on the right path. His word (Psalm 27:9) says that he will not leave me or forsake me.  He is my salvation.  This tells me that I can go to God with all my pain, troubles, and burdens. He is there ready to listen and act on my behalf.  I have to be willing to go to him, something that I will admit I have not been doing, because I felt he didn’t love me.  If he loved me then why would he allow me to go through this turmoil?  Everyday, I gain a greater understanding that my way is not God’s way.  My timing is not God’s timing. I have to be faithful to God’s word. Psalm 27:14 states Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:  wait, I say, on the Lord.
