Angela and I were invited to spend a few days at her aunt and uncles cottage- we happily agreed- it is always a great time when we go there with Angela’s family, and I must say, it was an added bonus to get out of Muskoka on the last long weekend of the summer- it can get pretty crazy.
For the past few weeks I have had a lot of unanswered questions and I have been trying to arm wrestle with God about my future. I have the ability to trust in Gods timing until I feel I’ve waited long enough- and then I start trying to creating my own answers. My head was full of a dozen different scenarios about where we would be in a year from now- even 5 -10 years from now, where we would live, where I would work, and even concerns about if we are even going to have enough money to go to Haiti this winter, or if my job would allow it- I hadn’t been praying about all these things because of my frustration at Gods timing and lack of answers.
After weeks of hopelessly trying to figure things out by myself, God found me here and said
New Living Translation (NLT)
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
