The Right Word at the Right Time

 The other day when I was spending time with the Lord, I ran across the scripture below. It is significant to me because I am really struggling with this whole being single thing. I want to be married, I want to have a partner and I know that God has the right person for me, but it is SO hard to wait, especially when you feel like you have been waiting for what seems like an eternity (not that I have been single long, just including the time that I spent in my marriage hoping that it could be saved) and there is no one there for you to even try to get to know. But I know that God knows my every thought and desire. He knows all that He has in store for me and for you. The passage below may or may not be meaningful to you, but it was what I needed that day…..

Isaiah 54: 4-8

“Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband – the Lord Almighty is His name – the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; He is called the God of all the earth. The Lord will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit – a wife who married young, only to be rejected, says your God. ‘For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compasion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,’ says the Lord your Redeemer.”
