My struggle with waiting has been that I’ve always seen it as wasted or lost time, taking away from the important things, the getting on with life. Time spent in line, when I could be at home cooking a meal; time spent reading a magazine, when I could be talking to the doctor; time spent waiting to hear God’s call, when I could be out there doing His work.

In my haste to get to my destination, it never occurred to me that the waiting might just be the journey. And in the journey, there is anticipation and excitement. There is time spent with those travelling with you. In the journey there is beauty and there is joy.

There is a forgotten place smack in the middle of the U.S. with a forgotten people who are struggling to survive, struggling to find hope.

God will call you to serve Him in mighty ways, and do things that will humble your heart.

The enemy will try to sabotage God’s plans. But if we remain watchful, remembering that our struggle is not against “flesh and blood, but against spiritual forces of evil,”  and put on God’s armor, the enemy will not prevail.

Because when you know whose you are, the when, where and how are just minor details.

I glanced over to see her hands shaking as she picked at her now cold food, eventually giving up and asking for a box. As my kids and I got up to leave I hesitated, then I walked over and smiled and said, "Hang in there. It gets better! One day you will be able to come have a peaceful dinner with three kids! Hang in there....you're doing a great job." She smiled in relief and her eyes welled up a little as she said thank you; it was what she needed to hear.

When we choose sides, we usually alienate the other half, leaving little room for open dialog and honest conversation. When we make the focus on right versus wrong, instead of on love, we are shutting the door to conversation and relationship with each other and we are giving the enemy lots of ammunition for creating a division within the church.

Yes, as the church we must speak truth. We cannot present a watered-down Gospel just to make ourselves more relevant, more palpable, more accepted. But, we must also follow the example laid out by Jesus and start with love.

Because when love leads, truth follows.

Do you ever have a week, a month, or maybe even a year when you start to think, “Really God? What else could go wrong? What else could possibly come my way? Why is all of this happening to me?” And then finally, “God, I really can’t take one more thing. I just can’t.”
