Waiting and Praying

You’ve prayed. You asked God to use your talents in a specific area. Yet opportunities seem closed to you. You want to minter to elderly people, but there isn’t a ministry for them in your area. You want to go out on the mission field, but the money isn’t coming in. Or you want to help single mothers, but feel inadequate.
We’ve all had times when things don’t go the way we wanted them to. Times of great longing and waiting.
If you are in one of these times, dear sister, let me encourage you with this word. Don’t worry. God knows your heart. He is in you to will and to work. He is working out His greater plan. It may be hard to know what He is doing, but He is working.
Rest, let God write the story. Relax, knowing that God will do the very best thing. And while you are doing this, do what you know to do for the day. Even if it’s just taking care of kids or doing housework, do what you have been called to do for that day. Then let God take care of the rest.

  1. Rose, this is such a blessing. What encouragement to those in 'preparation' and called, for now, at least, to just wait on Him.

    Thank you!
