“ Whenever your heart starts to be anxious about the future, preach to your heart and say, ‘Heart, who do you think you are to be afraid of the future and nullify the promise of God? No, heart, I will not exalt myself with anxiety. I will humble myself in peace and joy as I trust this precious and great promise of God—He cares for me.’ ”

—    John Piper

hebrews 11:1

"Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."

Dear God,

When it comes to our relationship, it’s like I have amnesia. I forget how faithful You are to me. I forget the moments when life is amazing and I am certain of Your promises to me. When I was sitting on the plane coming home from California, I had a moment where it was obvious — it was You all along. Why did I ever doubt You?

I remember having Bible study at church a couple months prior and remembering Phu talked about how our relationship with You, even though we can’t see You physically, we have memories with You. 

I have memories of You; I have memories with You. Memories of nights where I waited for You, longing to hear Your voice. Memories of how alone I felt, and when I heard Your voice the first time. Memories of how in love I was with You, and when I walked with confidence because I knew without a doubt in my mind You loved me. 

Why do I give myself away when it is only You I want? Why do I settle for people who doesn’t love me when it could never work because I know the words You have spoken to me are true? Deep in the hidden crevices of my heart, I know… and it sounds crazy, and I may be crazy, but I’m crazy enough to believe because I know You. I want to be Ruth. I want to wait. Help me wait. Help me find You in my waiting.
