How To Keep Faith in a Season of Waiting

How To Keep Faith in a Season of Waiting

I had a conversation with my daughter this morning as I was taking her to preschool.

“I don’t want to go to school.”

“Oh, why is that?”

“I don’t like sitting criss-cross applesauce on the carpet.”

Oh, how I wish I could go back to simpler times when sitting criss-cross applesauce on the carpet circle was my biggest challenge of the day.

God Will Fight for You - A Devotion for a Military Spouse

God Will Fight for You - A Devotion for a Military Spouse

Last year, I wrote this post as a way to release some of my feelings I had built up inside while by husband was deployed. Being a military spouse is not for the faint of heart. Then you add kids and a busy schedule on top of a deployment, it can be a recipe for "all the feelings". I relayed this devotion as a way to encourage not only myself through this time but others as well. I really needed to re-read this today.

My husband is home now, we survived, YAY!! But there is always something going in our lives that we just need to surrender over to the Lord. In my case, our house is on the market and has been since October... we have had A LOT of people walk through it and LOVE it but no offers. We are still waiting. I have to remind myself that God will fight for us! Whether, it is a deployement or selling our home, he is on our side.

I just need to be still.
