Here's a verse I read this morning that I thought was encouraging:

"In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation."
Psalm 5:3 (NIV)

I've had a lot of "stuff" to think through lately--I guess you could even say I've been wrestling with God about some things in my life that are completely out of my hands. I'm the kind of person who likes to feel in control of my life, and lately, its been very apparent that I need to lose this attitude and just wait on God. I hate waiting...probably one of my LEAST favorite things to do, but the more I think and the more I pray and the more I "wrestle"...the more I realize that I need to talk with Him, let Him know what is going on in my head and in my heart, and then just WAIT. Now I just pray that God will give me the patience to do so and to trust that in the end, this "stuff" will all work itself out.

So nice, Bonnie! I hate waiting too. But the more I hate it, the more God makes me! Adam and I always seem to be at our witts end, or spent the last pay cheque, before something happens to bring us out of the seemingly dark circumstance. But how true that we are always taken care of Matt 6:25-34.
