Breakthrough

When I flew out of Florida last month it was gray and raining... until we broke through the clouds. Right above the rain was blue sky - we just had to climb past the line to find it. There are good things for my children and I, just above the clouds. We're climbing up to the line and I am beginning to see.

I love this video (mute the volume on the youtube link) because it reminds me of my prayers.

See how the seeds start growing right away? But notice the first growth is below the surface! Do not be afraid... since the first day you set your mind to gain understanding and humble yourself before God, your words were heard (and action was taken)... (Daniel 10:12) but remember the Angel with the answer was detained 21 days. I heard this week the Bible says 366 times - Do Not Fear - 1 for every day and an extra in case we forget.

God has been quiet, but I do not believe he has been deaf to my pleas. And even in the quiet, he has been close. My seeds are growing, but they had to put down roots.

Action is being taken on my behalf in the heavenlies. And it is coming together down here. Jobs are coming, child care is set, school is starting, blessings are on their way. I can't write about all the details yet, but things we have prayed for together for months, are starting to break through. Thank you Jesus. And thank you, the walk has been hard but never alone out here.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:28-31)

Great post! I think maybe you are hard on yourself-- you've been inspiring us all along to believe He's listening. You have come so far, so bravely!
I absolutely love this post thought and am going to copy your words to put on my desk top as a reminder. Thank you :-)
