Patience - the ability to endure waiting, delay, or provocation without becoming annoyed or upset, or to persevere calmly when faced with difficulties.
I think the next three months are truly a gift from God.
You know what the next three months are?
Month # 1 – Waiting
Month # 2 – More Waiting
Month # 3 – Yet even MORE Waiting
I am waiting to attend a conference at the South American Missionary Society’s headquarters in
Basically, at this conference it will become very clear whether or not this will be an avenue for me to get back to
If all goes well in January I could begin a stretch of months that could prepare me to return to
BUT the conference is 79 days away. 79 days of praying and resting in God. 79 days of God working on me.
Waiting is not exactly a strength of our culture. I want this taken care of now! I don’t want to be patient…I mean let’s do this. C’mon God, let’s figure out exactly what I am going to do when I get to
“What was that? The less time I have to raise money the more I have to trust You? Oh…”
Well it’s no doubt that these next three months will be a great lesson in continuing to trust Him…and a reminder that I don’t think God needs to plan everything out in Microsoft Outlook like I do (He probably doesn’t even have to use those meeting reminder thingys). He is simply teaching me patience…that whole “being able to endure waiting without being annoyed thing.”
I pray God uses these next three months to bring wisdom and council into my life that can help confirm His call on my life and help confirm that I am going in the right direction.
