Nehemiah 12:43 And on that day they offered great sacrifices, rejoicing because God had given them great joy. The women and children also rejoiced. The sound of rejoicing in Jerusalem could be heard far away.
Have you ever found yourself waiting on God to fulfill a promise He has spoken to you? When will that day come?
Today, my reading was in Nehemiah 12. I don't know whether it was lack of sleep or lack of focus from lack of sleep, but I was not "getting" anything from the passage. So I went to journaling where I poured out my cries and heart to the Lord once again. Blah blah blah - really! I wonder if He gets tired of hearing from me. I said Lord, I am tired. I am weary on so many levels. You have promised this and promised that and YET I still have not seen the answers, the promises fulfilled.
I'm the persistent widow day in day out crying out. I'm the lady clinging to the hem of Jesus's garment. I'm the one leper that always comes back and gives God thanks and praise for something He has done. I'm the centurion with great faith trusting He will bring forth healing. I'm Abraham surrendering my Isaac to the Lord repeatedly. I'm the one my 4 friends are lowering on the mat through the roof. I'm Job wondering what chapter I'm in of that book and hoping its the last one. I'm Elijah being fed by a raven. I'm Lazarus at times wondering if Jesus will come before I die. I'm Joseph pit, prison and waiting. I'm Thomas saying I won't believe until I see. I'm Moses wandering in the wilderness for now 38 years... trying hard to not murmur and complain. I feel like some of the minor prophets having to "experience" the word that God has given them to share with His people.
All of these and others had to experience long waits. They had to wait forever it seemed for God to come through, for God to rescue them, for God to heal them, for God to take them into their promised land, for the promises to be made manifest. I am no different - and most likely you aren't either.
So after I journaled much of what I just wrote... the Lord said look up some commentary on Nehemiah 12. I stumbled on this blog below. As I read it, it seemed as if the Lord wanted me to find this blog. He was reassuring me, that He is working behind the scenes. He is working things for my good. And He will for you too.
Hugs, love and prayers.

God has given us a vision to build a retreat property along with ministry equipping center.
The retreat portion of our ministry is to provide a safe place for pastors, lay leaders & other ministry folks to come and be refreshed & encouraged through prophetic ministry (if wanted). We will offer private cabins with kitchens & full bathrooms, and plenty of places to roam on the property to get quiet with the Lord.
We will offer other specialty retreats - marriage, healing, prophetic teaching & activating people into the world & health and wellness retreats and more.
The Lord has graced us with the desire to come alongside the Church - to bring healing, deliverance & freedom to new/newer believers. We are not wanting to replace their church, but better help them be ready to serve in their church.
In our community building - we will eventually have a 24/7 prayer room, healing & prophetic rooms and a place for community worship services for those on the property.
Our passion is to minister to a lost & hurting world. To equip the saints to do the same and to be a blessing to our community and surrounding areas. Our hopes are that we can pour out God's love in a mighty way to bring more and more souls into the Kingdom, get them discipled, called into their purpose & destiny and released to do God's business!!!! We also have a passion to give generously to help those in need and to help others launch into their God given destinies.
