We continue to work through the process of purchasing our home. We have sold one house and have another to sell, or keep or contemplate. There are glitches in the financial aspect of things ~ none of it saying "You can't buy the house" but none of it coming easy either. I've said a number of times to my husband "be patient". I believe perhaps I've been unfair in saying this as I too am finding myself wondering WHEN will it all fall into place and WHERE are you Jesus in the process. My faith questioning, my patience unseen.
This morning in my devotions the verse "For we walk by faith not by sight" 2 Corinthians 5:7 was right there IN MY FACE. God speaking to me directly, STOP DOUBTING, KEEP TRUSTING. He says ... take steps in faith and be dependent on me, I will show you how much I can do for you. I don't doubt that. But in this process I think what are you waiting for. And I am reminded... He is waiting for us to COMPLETELY TRUST HIM, to not loose hope in Him, to not loose faith in Him and to not loose sight of Him. We are to completely trust Him. I will admit, there are times it is easier said than done - most often I have faith & trust that is unshakeable, but I have days when I am weak and think Where are You?
I am taking a deep breath and I'm mindful of His presents, His ability, His journey for us and I am mindful that I need not doubt, worry or be impatient. We have prayed God's will over this situation since before it began. I am confident that what ever the journey, whatever the out come, God's plans. God's timing .... far more abundantly greater than mine (ours).
Today I seek His face and His presents and His understanding of my impatience as I completely turn to Him with a heart filled with TRUST.
Thank you Jesus for the reminder, YOU were with us before this journey began, you will not leave us now. We must believe that your plans & your timing are far greater than our own and you continue to journey with us. THANK YOU JESUS.
