Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord.
Psalm 27: 14 (KJV)
If I had to mention one Bible verse that has held me together in my darkest days, it would be this verse.
When Karl and I lived in Illinois, I taught Sunday School year-round for 12 years. Sometimes we taught together; I could not have kept this commitment with my full-time school/work schedule without his support.
Karl could so easily help with the geography of a lesson, for example; and I would encourage the children that God cares when their feelings are hurt on the playground. I had been an elementary school teacher for 5 years, and the Sunday School years were the same as my university years. The reason I mention this is that one of the facts we highlighted in the Bible stories was the length of time between some of God’s promises and their fulfillment.
Blogging is another long-term promise God kept to me: He reassured me my poetry would find its readers. Thank you and I try to visit as many blogs as I can as well. Grateful for our community every day–you keep me writing! When God made this promise, I had no idea in the world that such a thing as a blog could exist!
