This week what keeps coming over and over is wait. Be patient. And while your doing that, be hopeful, be happy....live your life. I know God is working in this place I am at. I know it's not finished. I know the prep work is what is needed for whatever will be next in my life. Waiting....on His timing.....what to do, what to do....just live. Last year was a hard one. I knew what God was asking. No doubts. But this year was very different. What happens when you do what He asks and then that just opens up a whole new door to a place you have never been? I look back to a year ago and I see His hand leading me through this. So much has been given to me. Last night was spent celebrating a birthday with the family He has brought me into. Little by little He keeps adding :) It makes my heart happy. Waiting has a way of changing you that doing can't. Stillness, unhurried times, quiet has a way of letting things settle in. Letting them bind to you. Today if your waiting, I pray you can look around and see, that although you may be at a stand still, He is surely not. I believe He is preparing us for something that will simply be amazing....more than we ever hoped or dreamed. Thankful.
