(After writing this post, I felt like I was supposed to come back & add this: Maybe someone reading this needs to hear that God loves you. He is a present God. He is real & He desires to have a relationship with you. Do you have the peace of God in your life? Have you ever heard Him speak loving promises to your heart? Do you know Him in this intimate & real way? We were created for relationship with Him. He desires to know you. Call out to Him. The Bible says that all we have to do to enter into a relationship with God is to call upon His name, believe, repent of our sins & ask Him to change us. No matter what we've done He is always faithful to forgive us, restore us & love us unconditionally.
Over the past couple of months, waiting has seemed to be the main theme in our journey, but I can see so many other little themes & big lessons too. Through the waiting, God is working & teaching & changing us. It's not easy but we know this growth is for our good & His purposes.
