IT'S ABOUT TIME

Many women I know and speak with seem to have the same staggering question at one time or another in their lives.  WHERE IS GOD?
WHY ISN'T HE ANSWERING MY PRAYERS?

Let's be honest and admit that it can be so confusing when you are doing everything you know to be doing when it comes to being the kind of wife, mother, daughter, sister
- woman - 
God expects you to be, and then when you need Him, He disappears.  Seemingly.

You cry out in desperation.  Nothing happens.
You try to drum up some kind of faith in a seemingly silent Deity who says He loves you.. but is certainly ignoring you.
You know that something is wrong with saying the right words but not truly believing them.

As time flies by, your faith flies out the window.
And so you give up and stop praying...
You feel justified in surrendering your faith to the doubt that overwhelms you..
Time has won and stolen Truth from your heart.

The truth?

"The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry."  (Psalm 34:15)

God didn't need to write the Bible.
God didn't need to tell us that His eyes are on us, and His ears are attentive to our cries.
BUT. HE. DID.
And God cannot lie.

So if you are His child.. His eyes are on you. Right now. Right there.  TIME DOES NOT TURN HIS GAZE FROM YOU.
And He not only hears what you say.. HE IS ATTENTIVELY LISTENING TO YOU.

THAT IS TRUTH.
TIME IS NOT TRUTH.
TRUTH IS TRUTH.

You can decide that since God is taking too much time so it cannot be the truth that He sees you and He hears you.

That's a lie.

TIME has defeated TRUTH in your life.. and therefore in time you become defeated.

There is no mention in God's Word about time frames and answered prayers.
I could do a nine hundred page Bible study here about waiting on the Lord and what it does for and to people who do.. (like renewing our strength, mounting on wings like eagles..reviving our youth, etc.)

There is simply this:  He sees you. He hears you. He will help you.
You can choose to believe that truth.
Or you can let TIME steal it from you.

Where is it written that God has four years (or two, or one, or seven) or less to answer prayers about husbands and marriages - and if He doesn't we can stop trusting? Stop believing?

Where is it written that prayer for a wayward child has a one-year limit, and then, if the child is not back in the fold... you can give up and believe that God is NOT faithful?

Who says that if God hasn't healed you after all the times you've asked Him to He isn't going to? 

God's faithfulness has nothing to do with Time.
Your faith will be tested by time.
Will it stand the test of time?
HANG IN THERE.
Don't give up.
Don't give in.

Keep praying.
I can tell you  - in time - God will work it all out better than you could have worked it out yourself.  Give your husband, your children, your finances, your fear, your worry, your cares to the Lord. And keep giving them. Wait for your day of deliverance. It is coming. Is it coming soon? I don't know about soon.. but it is coming. 
It's about time that you don't let time steal your faith in a Faithful Father.

"WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD.
BE BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS.
YES, WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD."
Psalm 27:14 
I love you.
