The One with Attempts at Patient Waiting

God has been doing crazy things in our lives this week. It is one of those experiences that we know can only be an expression of his sovereignty, and we’re just waiting to see what his “end game” really is. It’s hard to wait. But as Ann Voskamp wrote yesterday on Twitter,

In Christ, urgent means slow. In Christ, the most urgent necessitates a slow and steady reverence

It is so hard to wait when everything seems to require immediate attention. But then I am reminded of Psalm 40:1.

I waited patiently for the Lord;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.

Lord, hear our cry. 

Dear Readers,
Please pray for us. I hope to be able to share with you the story God has been writing in our lives very soon.
