The Sweetest things come

if we just wait.....


"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

This random verse is on my heart today. I opened my Bible, and read this. Why? I don't know. But it has sat with me all day.

Do you have a hard time waiting for things like I do? This verse has anchored me. I pray I can rest in the contentment God has given me so far.

And wait.

I can wait for God's plan for my life. I know I am living it today. But I know there is more to come. So, I will rest with knowing that "surely it will take place".

What journey is God leading you on right now?

Lindsay - thanks for sharing this great post! I am totally struggling with waiting for our visas to come and trusting that they will come exactly when God plans them to, so this was really encouraging to me! Blessings on you and your journey - it's fun to read your posts and see what's up in your life!
