Proverbs 13:12 ‘Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.’
Do not all aches and pangs point to You? Even now I see in part the sins You are uncovering.
The pain is still real, O Father. Help me endure with much patience, pure love, and gentle understanding.
You work all things, in the past, present and future, for the good of those who love You.
