I have had the word "wait" on my mind for two weeks now, thinking that would be my word of the year. They quoted a verse using the word wait in Sunday School last week and I thought, "that is the Lord speaking that word to me."

Well since that day I have had the worst week in my life, in these 30 years I've been here on earth. No exaggeration. I thought my Grandma's death was horrid this past summer, but I have now experienced worse. I mean 2009 was up-to-date the worst year of my life, and I thought 2010 had to be looking up, but we're just two weeks in and I'm wishing away this year! The age 30 has come with a lot of problems. What I'm speaking of is a personal matter not to be broadcast across the Internet.

So, anyway, in my pain, I decided to go ahead and scrap my word of the year. This idea of a word of the year comes from Ali Edwards.

There are many verses on waiting on the Lord, but I went with something raw that spoke to me in my pain. That is simply that He "heard my cry." I am clinging to that. I need to know that if nothing else changes, at least God is there and knows how hard this is for me. As I go through this I will wait on Him and His timing and trust that He will not give me anything that He can't handle through the Holy Spirit.

I'm encouraged to see that your trusting in God during this time. He will hear your cry! Blessed are the brokenhearted for they will be comforted!

This was a quote I read somewhere and LOVED- "Can God be any less good to me on the average Tuesday morning than he was on that monumental Friday afternoon when he hung on a cross in my place? The answer is a resounding NO. God will not be less good to me tomorrow either, because God cannot be less good to me. His goodness is not the effect of his disposition but... the essence of his person—not an attitude but an attribute." God is GOOD! even in our suffering!
