A few weeks ago- out of nowhere- I started having mini panic attacks. I’ve never had a problem with them before and I never knew how hard they were to contend with. On a tiny level today— I want to say that I understand what you’re going through. They are ROUGH. It was a battle to shut them down.
I recently experienced the rod of correction from the Lord, but it felt more like a bear hug. It was my first day home after another 5 day stint in the ICU. It had been one of the hardest weeks of my life and tested my moral fiber and spiritual maturity to the very edge.
Sometimes in the heat of the battle, it’s hard to remember that God has a plan for good. When our circumstances hurt (especially when they hurt for YEARS)— we can find ourselves asking, “Where is God in all of this??”
Do you ever get frustrated with God’s timing? I totally do. Somehow it always feels either too fast or too slow for my comfort level. A few years ago when my husband and I faced crippling financial struggles, I remember thinking God couldn’t act fast enough to rescue us.
