When There Are No Words

When you find yourself sitting across the table from one that you love with your whole heart and the words come out of their mouth that you simply were not prepared to hear.  Ever.  But they are there, and life will never be the same again.  And you drive home from the restaurant, and you can't even begin to figure out what to even pray.  And as hard as you try, the words won't come...
 "Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good." (Romans 8:26-28 The Message.)
We get weary.  We are tired of praying and praying and crying and staying on my knees for the same one...the same thing.  But today, we can rest in knowing that my God has got this.  He faithfully met me twice today with this same reminder from His Word.  First in a blog, then simply on my daily flip Scripture calendar by my kitchen sink as I was fixing my coffee.  In the everyday mundane tasks of life, He is so timely.  His timing is perfect.  And so because of that, we can keep putting one foot in front of the other, being certain He is working it all out for good.
