It's HIS Battle - Just wait

My husband talked to a co-worker yesterday that lives by us. He decided to ask this man how things were going at work..if anything had changed.

Nothing has changed.

There was no investigation, there were no firings, no safety's been over a month...surely God would have moved in there and fixed that place good right?

I have to be honest with you...I'm having a really hard time with this information. I don't know what to do with it..what am I supposed to do knowing this place is going to get away with what they did to my husband.

It's hard to worship when your heart is so full of worry you can't see straight.
It's hard to worship when all you want to do is go tear a building and the people inside apart.
It's hard to worship when you're so angry you could scream.

Praise God, our worship is not based on feelings. Praise God He gives us the power to push through those annoying feelings...

When I get angry I tell God out loud that I trust Him, when I start to worry I tell God out loud that I trust Him. Today though it has turned in to "I trust you...but..."

No, there are no "buts" in's either I trust Him or I don' many times has He told me He will heal my husband..well I finally got that through my head and I know He will heal my many times has He told me - this is not my fight, it's His. I am the protector, it's my job to protect my family though right? What would happen if I just emailed one would know...I wouldn't put my name on the's His battle....

So this is what He meant when He told me not to get caught up in temptation and to keep my eyes on Him...

I'm tired of worrying, I won't tear the building or the people that did this apart...I'm a Jesus girl and Jesus girls just don't do that (smiles). God said wait, "wait for me" He says, "I keep my promises and I will take care of this, you just have to wait...and trust Me".

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:18

Do not take revenge, my friends; but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge and I will repay, says the Lord" Romans 12:19

I trust you Lord, I'm gonna go pray now..

Those of you new to my blog, thank you so much for following..just go here to read about what happened..

Thank you so much for this post! It is His battle! We have to give it to Him and simply worship. I am so thankful He is there beside us and caring for us.

Just look at how much you are learning and growing through this accident. This is God's battle and He will take care of you guys. Keep trusting Him and keep waiting. (You know how I love waiting lol)

The fires of life is never easy and we know that God puts no more on us then we can bear. But my dear if you can only grasp and hold on to His promises He will see you through this. No weapon formed against you shall prosper and what the enemy meant for bad God will bless you. Stand on His Word..God is not done He will open the doors and all those who oppress you will surrender to GOD!

As you said, everything happens by His Hand and in His Time Mandy. I don't wait well either, so I sympathize with your turmoil.

You and your family are in my prayers.

It IS His battle! When I have a particularly difficult battle with anything, I remember Romans 8:28...All things work together for good to those that love God and are called according to His purpose. God has a plan...and a timing! As Lisa said in her blog today...waiting is hard!

God bless, Mandy!

Thanks for sharing honestly. Wanting someone to get what's coming to them (or at least what we think should be) and that not happening on our timetable is frustrating and so hard to trust His timing...but it's His timing and all will work for our good if we'll let it!

I needed this post. Thanks for sharing. Although the circumstances are much different the outcome has been the same. I have been suffocating my relationship with God and worship of God with my anger and my need to fix things on my own. It's good to know that I am not alone and that this too can be overcome. Thanks again.
