I'm proud of her, my friend.
God asked her to do something tough and while it would be easier to ignore His call, she listens and pushes aside her fear and obeys His leading. She does as much as He gives her and waits, living every day with a burden she'd rather get rid of. Though she wishes she didn't have to, she deals with the pain, trusting God to make good of it and moves forward in an uncertain journey, strictly because He tells her to.
And wow, does she shine.
It's obvious God is working. His touch shows. Her faith grows and the beauty it brings out in her makes me a little jealous of the burden He's placed on her.
" . . . to refuse to bend our shoulders to carry a load is to miss a new opportunity for growth."
J.R. Miller from Streams in the Desert
She gives me incentive to say yes when God asks something hard of me. She shows me pain provides growth and growth displays His glory. She gives me courage, helping me see there is nothing to fear in hard times.
She makes me want to grow.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
