|Missing Your Life for Work|
In retrospect, most of the time, when we look back we would not trade who we became out of the struggle for an easier time. Even some of the toughest times, if given long enough will dull in pain and we can see God's hand on us: guiding, forming, and changing. We choose not to relive but we appreciate the journey.
|Waiting in the Wilderness|
Friends, I am guilty of fast forward prayers. I am particularly impatient with long waits and no progress, like the camping section of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Languishing in the wilderness, isolated, confused, and tormented by the voice of the evil one - we desperately seek to escape those times but the Lord will use them for our good if we let Him. So appreciate the day, enjoy the journey, find joy in today. As Christians, we hold on to the certainty of a happy ending.
