This is my husband's favorite verse. The Lord tells us to wait for Him. Even in these photo assignments, He has a plan. Maybe he wanted me to draw an eagle today : ) ... and practice drawing... We don't know right now, but it'll all be clear one day. The great part about waiting, is this verse promises we'll gather strength. Anxiety does the opposite.
I'm still not exactly clear where this trail is leading. I am sure the best thing I can do is keep working at it.
I actually found the verse below before I got married. Sometimes I would get so anxious thinking I'd never find someone. Then I realized we are all so much more attractive when we're happy and busy. I have more to talk about and share when I'm with others. I used to make a date with Jesus. Just spend the day with Him, thinking about His Word. It's a great experience to include Him in everything.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands…I love the simplicity of this verse. Makes me want to keep busy while I wait. It'll all work out fine in the end.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 NASB
