Day Four: Hurry-up and Wait
If you followed my ravings yesterday, you know that I had an offer to take a trip with a friend who works for an international Christian organization to visit Southeast Asia.
It's a go--sort of. I haven't said no. Just yes, IF.
This is the part of the "anything" equation that I'm not sure I love: Waiting for the answer.
I think I've done my part.
I got a new passport photo taken--(sooo bad). I rushed my passport off to get renewed, set up an online fundraiser and wrote a "snail mail" letter to send out as well.
I'm reading the required material, investigating what shots I may need, reading up on the country we'll be going to and the local customs.
I'm trying to forget the part about possible hostage situations and large bodies of water.
All that, and the answer from God still might be "not this time."
It's funny, I always think of myself as a patient person, but I realize I'm not. At least I'm not when it comes to God fulfilling my requests.
But then, isn't this supposed to be about ME fulfilling HIS requests? I get it.
Lead on, Lord.
