Waiting

Hi friends. I do hope you all are doing well.

Waiting.. I have good patience most of the time but when it comes to the future, planning, I'm not great at just waiting. I want a plan, a purpose, a "to do" list, a dream to set in motion. Yes I am doing therapy stuff and using my frustrations to get me past challenges and succeeding most of the time in amazement but it's the future that is in a waiting period.

Waiting - that waiting list for base housing (already now at month 8) has been extended to an estimated 6-8 months

Waiting - for the healing process, the walking easily and using my right hand with ease

Now waiting - to see if my husband will be allowed to re-enlist in the military in January. This is not guaranteed so we are waiting. Another process. Which will eliminate the base housing if one decision is made but then opens so many more decisions and destinations.

I have to admit that waiting is hard. Sometimes there are tears - of sadness, of frustrations, of uncertainty BUT I turn to the Lord, taking to Him all that is bothering me, all that is on my mind. Asking for His desire for us, God's favor on my husband to stay, beat the odds if that is His desire for us to stay here in Oklahoma or give us the desire to be where He wants us to be so we will make the right decisions when the time comes. Thanking Him for all He provides for we are truly blessed.

My soul, wait silently for God alone,
         For my expectation
is from Him.
 He only
is my rock and my salvation;
         
He is my defense;
         I shall not be moved.
 In God
is my salvation and my glory;
         The rock of my strength,
         
And my refuge, is in God.
        
 Trust in Him at all times, you people;
         Pour out your heart before Him;
         God
is a refuge for us.  Selah
Psalm 62:5-8

Hi Sara,
It is a long, tough road. You are amazing and a very strong woman. You will make it!

Continuing to pray for you. For healing, housing and for your husband.

The waiting is so hard, but God sure knows the timing and He is probably just waiting for the perfect set of events to unfold before He opens the door.

Praying and praying for you.

Uncertainty is very very hard. We know we are in God's hands, but it is so hard not to try to pull it into our own hands. You are doing the right thing by relying on Him!
