A few weeks ago I was listening to a message about the plans the Lord has for each one of us. The pastor brought out many great points about how the Lord uses the circumstances of life as one of the many ways He guides us along the path. As he developed the message, he quoted a statement a friend made to him several years ago, “The only thing harder than waiting on God is wishing you had.” Read that statement again and let it sink in…
Obedience to the Lord’s will is often filled with difficulties, especially when you are dealing with people and situations of the world. I have a friend who is going through a tough time with a tenant in his building. He allowed these folks to have office space, free of charge, for a given amount of time as their business transitioned from one owner to the next.
Recently we listened to John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. I think this was the 4th or 5th time I heard the unabridged version over the last 15 years. It is a classic and full of wisdom for any Christ follower on their journey in this life. Hard to believe it was published 337 years ago and written by a man with little or no formal biblical training.
Once again the Lord is moving our company forward at a pace that can only be described as extremely uncomfortable if not down right scary. Over the last few months, we’ve realized it makes no sense for us to stay in our home. As we close out the season, we will have only spent 12 weeks in the house. So we have decided He wants us to move back into our motorhome fulltime.
