I woke up to do another lesson on the topic "God why are you taking so long?". The lady who helps interpret had to keep stopping to regain her composure- she was crying so much. The presence of God flooded into that living room. The Lord- as always knew what he was doing. The new lady asked I could teach part two of that next week. I thought part 2? I have a really fun and cool lesson for next week already planned. The Lord jabbed me in the ribs- and I quickly said- sure I would love to do part two.
One of the things about patience is that we don't want to pray for it. We are afraid we will be hit across the head with 1250 trials as soon as the prayer escapes our lips. One of the ladies right before we closed in prayer said- No don't pray it. I said pray what? She said- for patience. I was not about to. I stopped and slowly prayed- Lord- give us the grace to go through what you have planned for us this week. Help us to know that when things are piling up- you are in control and you will help us.
Love when he interrupts my plans and my day. Especially when I was walking out the door and one lady said to the other one in Spanish- now that was a great lesson- it was what I really needed this week. Humble pie table for one please. Thanks God for keeping me on my toes and actually helping me to help others and for insisting that I put aside that horrible lesson that I thought was "it".
IS. 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with
wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.
