Be Still and Wait

Full disclosure. I am writing this blog post on Tuesday afternoon at 12pm. I wanted to share that because there is something in my life that will be rapidly changing sometime soon, but I do not know when. It may have already changed by the time this post has gone live or, I may still be waiting for it to happen. I can't go into full detail yet but, I can say that my patience is being tested in ways like never before. I am in the thick of waiting, like never before. Waiting for an ending that is inevitable but, isn't quite finished yet.

With that being said, it has been hard to write. It's hard to write from a place of such uncertainty. There is no planning to be done, because I have to wait. All I can do right now is, be still, and wait.

Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

I can tell you that in this waiting, God is doing a new thing in my heart. My hope has been in Him more in this circumstance than while in the thick of anything quite like it before. To be in such a position, to have such awareness of complete lack of control, is so incredibly humbling. It's only in this position have I felt my faith grow in ways unexplainable. It has been a prayer of mine, that my hope would be in Him alone. It's the goal of all goals, and in this waiting, it's become a reality. My hope is in Him alone. Not in my circumstance, not my worldly securities - but in Him, alone.

Please pray for peace for our family in this time of uncertainty. We already have some friends and family doing this for us, and it's working. He is good.
