I got this message today from someone; I am not sure if they would want their name mentioned but this sincerely blessed my heart and I wanted to post it. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!

"But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I

shall come forth as gold (Job 23:10). All the days of my appointed time will I wait,

till my change come (Job 14:14b). [So with that being said] Though

He slay me, yet will I trust in Him. (Job 13:15a)

I have a sneaky suspicion that once you let God know how you

feel, He will let you know how He feels and that is, Woman of God,

daughter, just trust me. I know what Im doing. If you can just endure a

little while longer, you will have the last laugh. Dont faint. Dont get

despondent along the way.

Yes, your heart hurts but I couldnt allow this door

to open because it was a smoke screen, it wouldve been what you wanted

and not what I wanted for you. It would have been an Ishmael (what the

flesh wanted) and not an Isaac (what is ordained in the Spirit). Hold on

woman of God. I havent forgotten about you. I know it seems like its

taking a long time but everything is going according to my divine plan and will

for your life. Youve got to trust me. Even when you dont understand it

or what Im doing, you must trust me. Can you do that for me? Can you trust

me with your life? Better yet do you trust me? Do you trust that I have

your best interest at heart? Do you trust that I can come through for you?

Do you> trust that I know what Im doing? Do you trust me to bring you out

of this trial? Do you trust me? Do you? I cant hear you?!!! Do you trust


Then if you do, then let me handle this thing. Let me handle it! I know

what Im doing. Do you think I want to see you hurt? Do you think I like

watching you suffer through the afflictions? Do you think I like

watching you agonize over when your breakthrough is coming? What kind of Father

do you think I am? Believe me, I want to come to your rescue, although

its very tempting, but I cant because if I do, the blessing wont last;

you wont get all that Ive ordained for you. Youve gone through too much

emotional damage, youve cried too many tears, youve been through too

much these past few years for me to just let you settle for anything. Ive

got to let you endure until the end. I cant allow you to give in now.

Trust me,it will be worth it. But you have to trust me?

I know your heart aches. I know youre confused but daughter, the end is nigh; your

breakthrough is imminent. I wouldnt be a just God if I didnt allow you to

enter into the Promised Land after all this time in the wilderness. Trust me. I

need you to trust me. Trust me. Please trust me. I will not let you

down.I promise!!!!

People of God, my heart is soooooooo encouraged on this morning. I think

Ill repeat what Job said again but in my words. But He knows the

way that I shall take and when He gets through trying me in the fire, in the furnace of affliction, I shall come forth as pure gold. So because I know Im coming out, I will sit back and wait on my appointed time until

my change come. Though it feels like the Lord is slaying me, though it feels

like I am going through the furnace of affliction, though it feels

like I am experiencing disappointment after disappointment, though it feels

like my world is turned upside down and spinning out of control,

though I go through times of discouragement, YET will I trust Him. Why?

Because the steps of a good woman are ordered by the


God knows what Hes doing in my life because Hes God! And cant

nobody be God like God! So since Hes God and He knows what Hes doing, I

might as well take the attitude of Job and wait on my change to come. He may

not come when I want Him, but believe me before its all said and done,

Hes going to come through just in time.

God and God alone has the final say. If you didnt know, you better ask somebody!!!! Glory to


Shondo!!! And for those of you who dont know what that means, and for those who thought it was a

form no speaking in tongues, Shondo is actually Hebrew slang for God is

going to turn it around! Shondoooooooooooooooo!!!!!!

Hallelujah to Jesus! Shondo!!!!!!!!! Youve got to trust God! Woman of God, dont pass out and drop out of the race

because youve experienced a little turbulence, you better look at your

situation and shout Shondo!!!!

In fact, let me declare it in the atmosphere again. Shondo!!!!! Do it God!

So no matter what you are going through this morning, dont allow

what you see to get you in a funk, to get you depressed, confused,

despondent, or discouraged; when its all said and done, youve got to trust

God! Will you do that this morning? Will you trust the lover of your soul? Will you

trust the lifter of your head? Will you trust the way-maker? Will you

trust Him this morning? Good! Now that weve got that squared away,

lets let the enemy know one good time that 1) he will get no glory today, and 2)

God is getting ready to turn this thing around right in his face. Shondo!!!!!!!!!!!! Now do your thing, God! And

because we trust that youre going to do it. "

Wow!! Wasn't that awesome. Every time I read it I cry. The Lord is good!

I have never done this before, but I could not let the day go by after reading this excerpt without saying something. I appreciate you for sharing that "word of encouragement"..It hit home, I mean really home! God has a way of doing things not always the way we think he will but he has a way. As I began to read, the tears begin to stream and I had to make myself stop reading for a minute before continuing to read...Again thank you woman of God, woman of virtue and woman after God's own heart.

I happened across this post while looking up the word "shondo" and look what God has done. He brought me to a blog with a post that came right on time for me. I've been going through a couple wildernesses over the past few years and God has recently brought me out of one but I am still waiting to come out of another. This post has encouraged me to continue to wait on Him and be of good courage because my blessing will come at the right time and place. God bless you and yours!

I woke up this morning with a word in my spirit and I simply wanted to confirm what it meant. I was introduced to the word Shondo 15 years ago. I was so blessed this morning after doing sooo many searches tring to find the meaning. Not only did I confirm its meaning, but I received a fresh reassurance today about my own situation. The whole message was for me!!!!

I came to this site to find out what Shondo means and I thank God for you and your words because I received so much more. I believe everything you have written and just reading your words aloud I have to throw my hands in the air and say Thank you Lord because he has definitely been there when I didn't know how I would make it. Thank you again.

Amazing how God would cause one word, 'Shondo', to effect so many lives over such a long period of time! A prophet came to my church, I heard him say Shondo and decided to look up it's meaning this morning. I have been experiencing a long wilderness, and prayed yesterday morning, 'will I ever win? I wanna win now! I'm tired of losing'. I re-listened to the prophet's message just now, that word stood out and caused me to search the meaning! Amazing God!!! He's turning it around, I'm gonna win. Bless you for posting.
