Yes, I did finish my 21 days of fasting and praying, but a family crisis took me off the course of blogging. My mother had a recurrence of cancer and I had to leave the country to go and be with her through her hospitalization and just be there to help her in every way I could. I love my mother so, so much!!
Yes, I was right in the middle of my intense time with the Lord, and bang, this storm hit me so bad. What happened to the rain I was expecting to come and fill my soul up? Well, if I hadn’t spent my time with the Lord, I don’t know if I would have not been left devastated due to the situation.
I was surprised at my own courage, patience, endurance while seeing my mother go through the pain in the hospital. But, wait, this courage and other strengths are not my own, it was from the Lord with whom I had spent my time knowing Him more. The rain did come but not in the way I expected.
The days seemed long, lonesome, and dark. But the Lord in His faithfulness, brought my mother out of the hospital with a successful surgery. He has done this before and He did it again. Mom is doing well.
Now, that I am back home, I must admit that I haven’t been faithful to Him in sitting at His feet and spending time with Him. I need to buckle up and listen to the nudging in my spirit to give some quality time to the Lord.
