  8. I needed to read this post today. It perfectly describes how I was/am feeling. Today (and this weekend) felt like a huge "where are you God??" I'm still struggling to pray over my list but I will share it with you anyways:
    God is greater than my nonexistent teaching contract.
    God is greater than substitute jobs that drain me and make me question teaching as a career.
    God is greater than rude or difficult students that challenge me.
    God is greater than cancelled plane flights that prevent my sister from visiting home.
    Today was a day full of "bad evidence." But, like Abraham, I will keep on hoping for something greater than my current circumstance.
    Blessings to all of you!

    V — I wonder how "things" (whatever they are) went with your daughter?

    Laura, thank you for being here!

  10. My husband and I are in that season of waiting.

    And reading this post made my heart ache. Because it reminded me that we still have no answer.

    Our finances are an absolute mess. We are struggling to make ends meet and as my husband is working on something new, hoping it will provide for our household, there is no progress.

    We are claiming victory, praying hard, refusing to worry, and rebuking every ounce of disbelief, yet at the end of the day we fall into bed, holding back tears because there is this nagging fact that we will need to borrow money once again to pay the electric bill.

    And you wonder when it will stop. You wonder when things will stop blowing up in your face.

    I have a journal that is filled with all the things that need to be fixed. Things that need to change. And I have been praying over it.

    But the waiting is hard. It's painful. And my grip at times gets tired. Where I feel like I cant hold on anymore.

    And Hebrews 12:12 reminds me not to let go, "So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees."

    Thank you for this series!

  11. Zhanna, I'm praying for you. Your words are full of truth… I pray they sink sweet into your heart and strengthen you so much that this season can be counted pure joy, through the trials!

  12. God is greater than our almost three years of infertility struggles.

    God is greater than 34 cycles of negative pregnancy tests.

    God is greater than my grief and sorrow for being unable to have a baby.

    God is greater than the trials of seeing so many women easily become pregnant and bear children when we've been unable to.

    God is greater than my plans and hopes.
