God promises us in His Word that He will never leave us nor forsake us. He also says that no father who loves his son neglects disciplining his child, and that likewise, He disciplines us.
IS HE EVER!!
I think I have never felt His discipline as acutely as I am right now. It came out of nowhere, and it just keeps - on - coming.
It's becoming comical, almost. Simply because there is no explanation other than knowing that my Father who loves me is weeding right now. My flowerbed of a life has lots of weeds, and He's a-pluckin'.
I never knew it could hurt so much. Owwwwwwwwwwwwwww . . .
But oh, so faithful is He. So true is His love for me. So good are His plans for me.
So I'll keep on waiting!
