If you are like me, trusting God while waiting is an on-going exercise. I’d like to tell you I have conquered the tendency to want to worry and fret, but that’s simply not true. I am still growing and learning.
In my 59 years on this earth, I have increasingly trusted Him more and more, but I still struggle. My natural self wants an answer to all my ‘what ifs’ before I say yes to God.
In Elizabeth’s story last week, we learned that we can grow in patience as we wait. She was one patient sister! When she found she was finally pregnant, it was clear her prolonged time of waiting was for a divine purpose. With God, timing is everything.
In Mary’s story, Elizabeth appears again and we learn a valuable lesson about trusting Him when we can’t see the whole picture. Mary shows us how to say yes, and leave all of our ‘what ifs’ to Him.
Love to all!
