Despite my vagueness, I’m sure you have put together that we are in a waiting period in our lives. We are. We are waiting for big things and every time we think we’re about to get that big answer, we don’t. And then we wait some more……..
And as the great Lady Grantham has said,
Here’s what I read:
We are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end.
It is the last step that wins; and there is no place in the pilgrim’s progress where so many dangers lurk as the region that lies hard by the portals of the Celestial City. It was there that Doubting Castle stood. It was there that the enchanted ground lured the tired traveler to fatal slumber. It is when heaven’s heights are full in view that hell’s gate is most persistent and full of deadly peril. “Let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” “So run, that ye may obtain.”
The problem of getting great things from God is being able to hold on for the last half hour.
Are you waiting?
Is there anything more tiring than waiting??
I’m trying to hold on to this scripture…to hold on to that confidence and see this thing through. I have contemplated not saying anything on this blog until the end…until the answer comes. But I decided there’s no testimony in that. Because this is the part that matters…the middle…the waiting. Even though I’m totally over it, I know this is where the refining is happening. I’m trying to consider myself blessed to be counted worthy enough to be tested like this.
Faint not, fellow waiters.
