While I’m Waiting

I am sure most of you have heard the song “While I’m Waiting” from the movie Fireproof. It is a great song that talks about worshipping and serving God while you are waiting. Well I have to admit as hard as I am trying to do that, it is very difficult. Christmas has come and gone and I never really did get in the spirit this year. I found it so difficult to feel thankful for where I am and what I have when all I want is to give it all up. I would much rather be penniless living in Haiti and loving on those people than sitting here spoiled in America. But there is a process and God knew it would all take this long. Nothing has come as a surprise to him. His ways are not our ways. I was reminded today to be still and know that He is God. He is in control, He is my master, I will follow where He leads and when He leads. I ask that you would pray with us during the waiting. It wears on Matt and I both and satan is definitely trying to seep into our marriage. I honestly didn’t think things would get difficult until we got to Haiti, but boy was I wrong. Satan is trying his hardest to keep us from going and he is not giving up. But praise the Lord our God has already gone before us and prepared the way.
