Trust and Patience

Two things that apparently God is telling me I lack. In the last couple of weeks, the hubs and I are facing some major decisions, decisions that will affect our family in some major ways. And to make things worse, it's not just one big thing we're dealing with, but two major things that we are praying about and seeking God's guidance on. But the answers and clarity I'm praying for just aren't there. I'm learning to lean on God, to pray without ceasing, and most of all I'm learning to wait on God's plan. I'm learning that He knows what is best for my family, and no matter how much I stew and worry, He is ultimately in control. So while I wait, I continue to pray for Ryan, who I have left to carry the weight of making the decisions. I trust my husband with these decisions because I know he only has our family's best interests at heart. I am slowly learning to understand that God only has my family's best interest at heart,too. How do I know? Because He said so....
          Those who know your name trust in you, for you,
 LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. 
Psalm 9:10


  1. Beautiful post, Angie! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. I read a little something last week and it's been sitting with me ever since as I try to strengthen my own paitence and trust: Let go, and let God. I know it will all turn out wonderfully for you and your family!

  2. Fortunately in this situation, one of the decisions is a win-win. One is a lose-lose, but that one doesn't require an immediate decision, rather a series of choices of how to handle the situation. So I can honestly say through this all, GOD IS SO GOOD!


You took the time to hear from us, we'd LOVE to hear from you :)
