Waiting for the Mountain to Move


August 13, 2006
It's only 2 more days before we have to give our 30 day notice to Ryan. Please give us a definitive answer...Lord, I just can't bear the idea of living with someone again. Please open up a good door for us.

"For you, O God, tested us; You refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let men ride over our hands; we went through fire and water but You brought us to a place of abundance."
-Psalm 66:8*12

Dear Father,
We are very excited. Nathan has an interview at the college on Friday. Please let Your will be done. We both recognize that it is not by might or by power, but it is by Your Spirit. Do the work oh Lord, receive the glory.
-Amen

Father,
Sometimes I wonder, "Where are you? Why have you kept your face hidden from me?" And yet I know that You are still there. I do believe Your Word. But sometimes I get so tired...

Dear Father,
I know that You can do anything and that time is no constraint. This is why Nathan continues to put in applications even though we are running out of time...We are waiting on You Lord.
-Amen

Dear Father,
Another day has come and gone and we still wait on You. I keep telling myself that Your timing is perfect. Why can I believe it for everyone except myself? And yet, deep down, I know it is true.

you have a sweet spirit. :)

I appreciate this peek into your soul. I'm eager to hear the rest of the story--what job your husband got, whether you moved or not, etc.

I think what I most identified with was this:

Father,

We are looking for a church home, and it's been quite a journey--sometimes refreshing, sometimes exhausting, but always we're looking for God's hand and haven't seen it clearly yet. I know He will be faithful though to reveal in His time what we need to know!
