My Isaac Part 18 I'll Keep Trusting

 Living in limbo... I`m not sure there`s any way to describe it to someone who has never experienced it.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of `in limbo`
 1: in a forgotten or ignored place, state, or situation; orphaned children left in limbo in foster homes and institutions. (How fitting...and a little disconcerting that this situation is so common it`s an example in the dictionary.)  
2: in an uncertain or undecided state or condition (Yup, that`s accurate too!)

 Although I`d become accustomed to living in this forgotten, ignored, uncertain, undecided place, it was still a struggle.  All I could do was determine to keep trusting in my Lord.

My Isaac, Our Foster Adoption Story

I’ll keep looking unto Jesus, who’s Spirit abides in me.

He’s my example to follow; he is all the answers I need.

I’ll keep trusting in my Saviour, who said these things must be.

He suffered so at the hands of man; gave his life so willingly.

I’ll keep going for my Lord; I know he’s working in me,
through all life’s sorrows and blows, to conform to what I should be.
In the face of opposition, I’ll keep trusting in my Lord.
Through pain and disappointment, I’ll keep trusting in my Lord.
Through dark and lonely valleys, I’ll keep trusting in my Lord.
Every scar left from the battle; every bruise I bear from this world,
is simply my reminder of the healing power of my Lord.
I’ll keep trusting in my Lord.

  I may not be able to see beyond the next curve in the road, or past the valley I’m walking through, but I know my final destination, and I know that if I keep my eyes on my Lord and Saviour, he’ll guide my footsteps along the way. He may take me places I’d rather not go, but that’s where I learn to trust him. He’s already shown me over and over again the folly of choosing my own path. No matter what this journey brings; no matter what trials come my way, no matter how difficult the road may become, my response must always remain the same: I’ll keep trusting in my Lord.

Psalm 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

  1. I've been in a state of limbo, where I haven't been able to go forward or back, but have had to endure the present with no sense of belonging. It's a hard place to be.
