Relocating Is A Moving Experience

Thanks to the grace of God, I am now recovered from my recent illness and in the throes of packing, changing addresses and utilities, etc. as I prepare to move into a new home. After briefly sinking under the weight of the fear of the unknown and the many tasks ahead of me, I’ve finally begun to look forward to the adventure and all the new possibilities.

movingNo matter how firm our faith may be, we are still subject to our emotions and they are so easily influenced by our physical health and circumstances.

Waking in the small hours during the past weeks, no matter how I prayed for peace, I was overwhelmed and discouraged. It is so hard to see clearly in the darkness.

This has been a reminder to me of the value of patience in my spiritual walk.

I need to have faith, yes, and trust, definitely, but I must also have the patience to wait for God to act.

    I’m so glad you are feeling better. Best wishes as you pack and move and explore new directions. I suffer from impatience although I know
    God is in control and His Will will be done in due time. Sometimes though I think of that funny prayer: God grant me patience and please do it right now.
    God’s peace be with you.
