As you faithful readers of this blog know, I have been waiting for my wife’s immigration to America for two years. Those were very difficult, trying, and long years, but the one thing that kept us going was hope!
Hope is recognizing there is very little you can do, while wanting a certain result.
Well, if all went as planned, I met my wife yesterday at an airport in America. Waiting for her just outside the doors to the immigration section. This process has been such a challenge that I have said, “I won’t believe it until I see her.” But yesterday, my hope turned into reality. God is so good. He kept us close to his heart especially on the days when our hearts were breaking, aching, and we struggled to see us crossing the finish line.
I know we are not alone. Many of you are facing your own struggles where all you can do is hope. Don’t give up. Don’t let go of God’s hand. I know He will never let go of yours. I recently posted a blog where I wrote about the women with the issue of blood, from the Bible. Her reality took 12 years to arrive. Her sickness bankrupted her, but she never gave up hope. Then the day came where Jesus appeared on the scene. She was healed by simply touching the hem of his garment as he walked by. It was her faith in Jesus that healed her and not the robe he was wearing.
“So because our hope is set on what is yet to be seen, we patiently keep on waiting for its fulfillment.”
Rom. 8:25 (TPT)
So whatever it is you are hoping for, a job, a healing, a spouse, or salvation for a loved one don’t stop hoping. You never know the day when Jesus may show up on the scene. It would be a tragedy to give up the day before he passes by. For Jesus passing by in the life of me and my wife I am so grateful. Praising and worshipping his mighty name all the way across the finish line. Thank you God. Thank you Jesus, and thank you Holy Spirit.
