This morning in my prayers, I talked to God about our visas. I've done this a lot this summer. Asking God why we're waiting, asking Him if we're supposed to be doing something that we're not, asking Him if we've done something wrong, begging Him for patience. Today I asked the same questions, but I also asked for some encouragement and peace. We want God's will, we want His timing. I do not want to get ahead of God, nor do I want to lag behind Him.
Awhile back I posted "Sit still" from Exodus 14:13. God reminded me of it again today in Isaiah 30:7 - "Sit still". My foot notes say, "Man's extremities are God's opportunities".
I have no idea why our visas are taking so long. I don't understand why we're not in Australia yet. But I do KNOW that God is in control, and He has a purpose for everything, and in His perfect timing the doors will open for us. Until then, I simply pray that I will be doing what I'm supposed to be doing, and that I won't allow Satan to discourage me.
