Pause

This morning Asia is taking his board exam to be licensed as a marriage and family therapist...

There have been months of discussion, classes, studying, dreaming, praying and planning leading up to this day...

There have been LOTS of opportunities to let go and trust.

There has been lots of change, particularly for me...

There's been lots of anxiety... particularly this week... tension has been running high as all this energy comes together into this one four hour test that will determine our future.

And yet, last night, we were blessed with a moment of calm.
  • A change to reflect on the gift of living in a country where a person can pursue their dreams.
  • An opportunity to thank God for his provision.
  • A moment to pause - and revel in the culmination of months and months of prayer.
  • A quiet whisper in bed "Whatever happens, I will always love you... God is in control... so we'll be okay..."
For this four hours I am suspended between what has been and what is to come...
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord
“plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
