Even Now-Somehow

When you pray and you pray for a miracle and you don't get it-what happens then? In our situation it has not been there for lack of prayer or belief. We pray all the time and have so many people praying for us it's unreal. I'll tell you the truth-it's extremely hard to pray for something for 3 years and have to still be walking through it. It's hard to understand and most days I still don't. What I do have though is an unwavering belief in the faithfulness and goodness of God despite what circumstances are saying. Everything else is muddled, difficult, painful and so extremely hard to understand. And that's the truth of where we are-its day to day and not easy. I had a friend send me a message from Steven Furtick this week that spoke to me so deeply I thought I would pass it along to you all. It is one hour long but the time flew by for me because he is such an excellent speaker. I have never recommended something like this before-but if it can touch one person as deeply as it touched me-then it is worth posting. If you are going through a situation where you aren't getting a lot of answers to the questions you're asking, and the pain seems like it could swallow you whole, this is definitely worth a listen. It changed my perspective, inspired and challenged me all at the same time. So if you have a moment-check out the link below.
