Waiting is not easy, as I have discovered the last few weeks. There are so many uncertainties as we make plans and preparations. Things that we thought would be easy have turned out to be difficult, things that should be relatively quick are taking a long time, and things that we didn’t expect have come in the way. It’s too easy to fall back into trying to make things happen.
“Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you, and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you. For the LORD is a God of justice’ blessed are those who wait for him.” Isaiah 30:18
“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
God is speaking, and the need to be quiet and listen is something I’m learning to do more. Both these verses were part of my week and brought me back to letting God work in his timing.
Pray for us as we make preparations. Pray that God will open the doors, clear the paths, and make our way straight.
