DO NOT RUSH
Do not rush
Do not rush headlong
Do wait patiently
Expecting good things.
Costa Rica is on our minds these days. Another short-term mission in the region of Alajuela. Language school is the next step for us which will involve a year of immersion as well as schooling. We are willing and ready, but there are still some loose ends to finalize.
We tried it our way. We put up our house up for sale and for two years it did not sell. It was not our time it seems.
In our hearts, we were willing to give it all up to head south to our destination, Atenas, Costa Rica.
We let go of any attachment to material possessions and family and have been surprised that we are now back in our home and waiting to hear and do the will of God.
We have had questions that we put before the Lord concerning his plans.
Waiting has been difficult for both Jerry and me, we are people of action. Yet, this time has been fruitful. We have ridden the roller coaster of emotions concerning our future and we are just resting in Him now and have thrown out our expectations and are waiting to discover his.
This is the life, living just one day at a time. Dreaming, trusting, breathing in the beauty of each moment and knowing that this is what God needs us to experience right now.
Tomorrow will come soon enough with its own new challenges and joys. For now, I will be grateful for all that I have today. My cup is full.
Consider it a sheer gift friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don't try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient in any way.
