Pain: we can use it or waste it (Part 2)!!

                                            



After I listened to the sermon by Rick Warren I really started pondering on my current situation.

My physical pain is used to tempt me to cause me give up.  Trust me there are those dark moments when I really want to give up.. Times are tough, the pain is overbearing, I have really had to learn new limitations, I have had to deal with weight gain... the list goes on... BUT, I can use the Pain or waste the pain.  There is no where I would rather be except in the will of God.. This is part of his plan for me and I will except it!

I pray for deliverance but while I wait I pray for strength.. fresh and anew!
Yes I am weak but God's spirit is inside of me... I will NOT be defeated!!
I will call upon the LORD and he will answer me......
                                                                                        





  
During these last two years of physical pain I HAVE FOUND the LORD.. I have experienced his PEACE, his LOVE, his GRACE, his COMPASSION, his LOVE, his FORGIVENESS... There was a time I ran from God; because he was too much for me... I would NOT exchange this time if this is what it took or takes to keep me grounded in LOVE.  I may walk the deepest and darkest valleys at times; but I am not alone!!!

Hillsong "Where feet May Fail"
You call me out upon the waters
The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery
In oceans deep
My faith will stand

I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise my soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters
Your sovereign hand
Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me
You've never failed and You won't start now

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I will call upon Your Name
Keep my eyes above the waves
My soul will rest in Your embrace
I am Yours and You are mine
