So often I ask myself, "God, what are you doing?" "What are you up to?" It is easy to question God when things don't seem to be going the way we thought they would go. The fact that God doesn't always move the way we think He should either shows us that God is not in control or that we have a false sense of having any control? (It is definitely the latter!)
I, and my family, have been on this journey onto the mission field. We have been through a variety of trials and frustrations, but we have also seen miracle after miracle of God providing emotional and financial support. But, even more than that, we have experienced God awesomeness in all of this! God has put incredible people in our path given us new friends! We could have never seen any of this coming. It has not happened like we thought it would happen. However, we are so blessed!
As we continue this journey, God's ways will prevail and we will be more grateful and be in more awe at what He will have accomplished!
If I could encourage anyone by what we have been through, this is the message that I would love to convey: God's ways are higher than ours!
We still don't know how all this will work out?! We know what God has called us to, but as to the timing of it all, that is His business. I would encourage you to continue to seek the Lord and rest in Him.
