Waiting, patience, standing under. All of these things sound difficult. That is why we need God to do them. We need persevere and not faint (he jokes that fainting is easy for the person who does it - everyone else is all upset and concerned).
Tell us what you really think?! YIKES!! In the end it is often true that worry is because it is going a way I don't want or don't understand instead of trusting that God is in control of EVERYTHING and he says that things will work to the good. Do I live like I believe that?
There it is is. Pride and personal ambition. I truly don't want God's answer or even really His help. I can do it, thank you very much. I am certainly at the place now where it is pretty evident I cannot do it. I need to stop being "too busy" and intercede in the areas he has given me insight into. I tried to "Do" first and to little avail - lots of hard knocks and missteps.
If your child are little I encourage you to "watch and pray" and not feel the need to "go" and "do" all the time. Man, I feel into that trap and am reaping some of the not so beautiful rewards of that. The season will come but if prayer is the work that is something you can do wherever you are.
I pray you have a blessed Resurrection Sunday!
