He hears our heart’s cry

Those who know me, know I love to pray, spending precious time with God, sometimes talking, sometimes listening; in the quiet of the early morning, in the hustle and bustle of life, in the office with my husband, in the car with my children, in the cafe with friends, walking and praying around the school, at church, well really wherever I am, for me it is always a good time to pray.

Over the years I have seen God answer many of these prayers, in many different ways, and mostly not in the way I expected! God is faithful.

But then there are the other sort of prayers. The prayers that come from that deep place in your heart, knowing that man cannot fix it, only God can bring the change. We leave the request at the foot of the Cross, genuinely believing that one day, God in His wisdom and timing will answer it.

Life goes on and that prayer is no longer on our lips. It hasn’t been forgotten, it just isn’t the main focus anymore. Occasionally it is brought to the surface again, triggered by a situation or a conversation, and that cry of your heart comes out again, “God I am choosing to trust You, that You have heard the cry of my heart and You have got this sorted.”

Lord, you know and understand the hopes of the humble and will hear their cries and comfort their hearts, helping them all! Psalm 10:17 TPT

And then that “one day” comes, and the prayer is answered. God is faithful. There is an overwhelming sense of God’s love and a deeper understanding that He is always at work in the unseen. By His grace we move a step closer to the maturity that He is calling us to.

He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30 NKJV

I have a background of working in the corporate sphere, however the past 8 years of living with a child with cancer have impacted me greatly, and have led to me to regularly write and speaking about this horrendously challenging journey. Many of the things I've learnt can be applied to any challenge we face in life, not just cancer. In 2018 I published a book about some of our journey of living with a child with cancer - Childhood Cancer - A survival guide for parents - written by a parent. It includes the practical strategies, tips and checklists we used to during this period to help our family survive this season. More information about my book is available on https://childhoodcancerparentsguide.com If you are planning an event and are looking for a speaker on any of the following topics, please contact me at wendy@wendyrobinson.com.au Living with a child with cancer – strategies for making it through Siblings – helping them thrive when they have a sibling with special needs Marriage – keeping your marriage going during the crisis and then when you are an on-going primary carer Caring for the carer – coping with depression and strategies for good mental health Rehabilitation – strategies for helping a young child requiring physical rehabilitation Writing as therapy – steps for writing your story Building resilience - Adversity is a good teacher – for us and our children Spirituality – where is God when the tough times come Corporate / Business Background For the past 16 years I have worked at Newsletter House in a management capacity, including helping navigate the business through the economic challenges of being a small business hit by the GFC.
