We completed seven weeks of waiting. I was at a conference all week, so week seven sped by for me.
At the conference, I took a class called "God's Waiting Room". It was just what I needed. The teacher reminded us that every time God has us waiting for something, if we are faithful and wait on Him, He makes it more than worth it....He does more than we expect or could imagine every time. Throughout the Bible, those that weren't faithful in their wait (i.e., the Israelites not waiting on Moses to come down from the mountain and making an idol to worship, Abraham having a child with his servant instead of waiting on the Lord to provide Isaac with Sarah, etc.) never experience good results. When we insert our own will into God's it just doesn't work. His will is good and perfect; our plans are so human. He can still use our bad choices, but His original plan is better.
Just imagine those faithful souls waiting in the upper room like Jesus instructed them to in Acts. Probably some lost heart and went on home. Those 120 that stuck it out got more than they could have imagined. They received the Holy Spirit!
Praying for our boys and trusting the Lord for them. Thanks for checking in with us!
