Waiting...

So we've been in what feels like limbo for a while now: job stuff, promotions (or lack thereof), raises, getting out of debt, being healthy finally, and on and on it goes... you know how it is... you get frustrated... if you're like me, you tend to doubt what God's best is... you're confused, what have you.

I was catching up on some fun blog reading this morning when God walloped me upside my head, courtesy of my fancy friend, Hannah. (She's amazing. If you aren't following her yet, you are certainly missing out.)

Anyway, she was going on about the little accomplishments that are actually really big moments with her cutie pie son, Elijah, and then this happened:

"and for you. i ought to be cooking dinner, but needed to tell you.

that thing you're waiting on? i know waiting is difficult. but take heart tonight. the lover of your soul has something good in store for you. it's probably not what you're envisioning, but it's good for you. he knows what we need and exactly when we need it. make a decision with me. this moment is for trusting him, with our futures unknown. with our dreams and hopes. decide now that you'll praise him no matter what. and if your circumstance seems unchanged, trust him. you can grow in grace, in special fellowship that's richer during waiting. keep your face toward him, i suspect he may bless you with little glimmers of his love that will lift your heart and put a song on your lips. snake snacks and orange lollipops are not what i would have asked for, but they were timely and perfect."
 
Well alright, then.
