We are continuing to wait for things to unfold. Time has a way of dragging on when you are anxioulsy waiting for something. I can relate to Abram, who keeps asking me how many days til his birthday, and then whines about how looooooong its taking. I keep reassuring him that it ISN'T THAT long......(Oh how the Lord has a way of flashing mirrors at us...hehehe).
At church on Sunday, the minister spoke of faith. How that Thomas was a doubter, he had to SEE to believe. Thankfully the Lord was generous to him and SHOWED himself to him, but he made it clear that it is better for one to believe without seeing, and to just have FAITH.
The ministry continued on, and it really touched me, but I also thought about how much God has shown Den and I his plans for us. I thought about how generous He has been, and the peace that He has given us, but I always want MORE, it seems. I guess I would love to have the Lord sit down on the couch and lay out the entire plan, than I would go, but then again WHO WOULDN'T? I mean if God sat down on my couch, and I debated it with them, than I would be in OOOOOBER trouble.....lol.
So, as time is slowly eeking by, my confidence is increasing in Him. I still don't have all the answers, but obviously that is for good reasons, and I'm sure it is to stretch me in growing my FAITH. I had this peace just gently roll over me on Sunday. I felt like the Lord was saying, "Relax and enjoy the journey, after all my intentions are never to hurt you, but to do what is best for you." Den felt the same thing, and so as we continue to battle our flesh for quick easy answers, he and I are trying to just WAIT and RELAX a little.......even though I can TOTALLY relate to Abram.
