It's so hard to wait. Especially when you have a calling to be somewhere else. We are still trying to figure out as to why we are here in the States, and I don't understand why we have not been given the green light to GO.

I have been making it a matter of prayer for a long time asking the Lord to help us make sense of all this... and silence...when are you going to speak to us Lord? On my walks I pray, I journal during my quiet time, and we have been really seeking His face...silence.

Then, He spoke and it could not have been any more clear...He spoke to me.
He spoke to me through this poem in our devotional. Now this was several months ago that this happened, but it happened again and this time to Matt with a different poem in this devotional.

I finally decided to blog and share this.

This is the poem in which I felt the Lord talking to ME.

“Waiting! Yes, patiently waiting!
Till next steps made plain shall be;
To hear, with the inner hearing,
The Voice that will call for me.

“Waiting! Yes, hopefully waiting!
With hope that need not grow dim;
The Master is pledged to guide me,
And my eyes are unto Him.

“Waiting! Expectantly waiting!
Perhaps it may be today
The master will quickly open
The gate to my future way.

“Waiting! Yes, waiting! Still waiting!
I know, though I’ve waited long,
That, while He withholds His purpose,
His waiting cannot be wrong.

“Waiting! Yes, waiting! Still waiting!
The Master will not be late;
He knoweth that I am waiting
For Him to unlatch the gate.”

J. Danson Smith

This poem continues to encourage me and I hope it brings some comfort to you in your time of waiting.

This made me cry.. because I know you are waiting.. and I know where your heart is. If I know..then God must know and His timing is so much more perfect than we can imagine.. I know and you know that God has huge plans for you, Matt, and Luke.. I will continue to pray for you.
this is for you.. copy and paste.
