Why am I waiting for good news? Because it seems like, lately, there’s been way more bad news that anything.
It’s been a season for me and for my family of tough situations. one. thing. after. the. other. And most of it has been bad news. Frustrating news.
My husband and I have almost begun to laugh as one more thing happens/breaks/falls apart. Why? Because it keeps happening and at some point you almost have to laugh to keep from falling apart.
I don’t understand it and cannot explain it. I just know it’s been hard. It’s caused me to press in and seek God more. That’s good…
But back to the waiting for good news… I long for it…for the day I get the phone call or letter in the mail or when my husband comes home from work with a huge smile on his face. I pray and ask for it: “Good news today God? Oh please let it be!”
And this day, when I pray my today prayer for something good in the midst of the hard, I am set free from my seeking. Because I hear the whisper of “I AM all the good news you ever need.”
“My WORD is the only true good news. Circumstances and earthly things never compare to My truth.”
I shake my head as tears fall because I know this…should have this down by now. But it’s not a rebuke. Just love and an answer. Some good news in my day.
The good news I’ve been longing for I have. And on the days when the bad threatens to crush me I can hold on to the good news that never changes, never fades, never disappoints…
