Guest Post: Caravan Sonnet

While I head out of town for the week, I am having a few friends guest post for me. Today, I am having one of the most inspiring girls I know, Rebecca from Caravan Sonnet. Rebecca has faced more trials than most of us ever will, but does it with so much love and grace. She is in the middle of defeating cancer and lymes disease! Despite all she has going on around her, she continues to trust God. She is a true testimony of walking with the Lord during hard times. I hope her post blesses and encourages you, as she shares about a topic I am very passionate about, waiting on the Lord! Thanks Rebecca for sharing with us today!

Waiting is the hardest anguish isn’t it? Waiting on the Lord to answer prayers that you have prayed months and years and sometimes decades to see come to fruition is something that is hard to adequately express in words the emotions that can be felt and can feel like we are navigating walking a tightrope over a very deep chasm. Waiting is the difficult anguish of acknowledging my deepest longing and desire is being unfulfilled at present and wrestling with the bewilderment of what seems to be unanswered prayer and God’s silence.

    I am so sorry for the pain you are going through! I can only imagine what it must feel like… You wrote a beautiful guest post, my dear. God’s timing is always perfect, and I totally agree that sometimes I wish His timing would coincide with our own. Prayers for you! xoxo

    Bless your dear, precious heart, Rebecca! I am SO sorry for your pain and suffering and the seemingly endless waiting you are enduring. May the God of all comfort wrap you in His warm embrace and hold you so close to His loving heart. Praying for you, dear girl. And, thank you sweet Caroline for opening your blog for Rebecca to post here. 🙂 Much love to you both.

    I am struck by so many things in this post; beauty, honesty, faith, courage. I have been struggling with fear a lot. Very different though and I am sorry for the pain and uncertainty of this time in your life. I agree that sometimes just stepping aside from what God is trying to accomplish in you (look at this post, who knows who else needs this testimony?) helps release the sense of fear and I have really been focussing on that. In the end, it isn’t God creating the illness but it is God who is shoring you up to handle the illness. It isn’t God keeping your future from you, it is God steadying you for what your future holds. God does not create roadblocks, God opens doors. I’ve had a lifetime of questioning Gods timing, etc. but I always come back to “if it is in my heart, it was put there by my Creator.” After all, He “knit me in my mothers womb.” Every hair on your head is precious and counted. This time will pass or as Julian of Norwich says “and all shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well”. And that was during the Plague! ;). Sending prayers for healing and quick!

      Thank you so much Annette for your words and for your thoughts. I love that quote from Julian of Norwich and it always struck me (as a former history teacher) the courage and history that he said it with- during the dark days of the plague. Thank you so much for the beautiful reminder!! Thank you for your words and for taking the time to read this guest post and leave such a thoughtful comment.
      Blessings, Rebecca 🙂
