God's Ways Are Amazing
Oswald Chambers writes "The main thing about Christianity is not the work we do, but the relationship we maintain." We can work and work, trying to do what God desires, but sometimes He just wants us to know Him and trust Him. The Lord works in His own timing and that does not always coincide with my timing. The relationship is above all.
We have had so many changes over the past few weeks. We tried to sell our house however God needed it to help another child of His that needed a place to live. We were going to go to Cairo for language school, the Lord wanted us to go to the field a bit quicker. We had a shortfall in our support but then our financial obligation was met through some very generous churches and individuals. This journey has been a constant building of relationship with our Father. As much as we want to get to the field, I long to know my Father in ways that I have never known before even more.
As we get ready to move to South Sudan our prayer is that no matter what is going on around us, we will remember that the Lord is in control and everything that we experience has passed through His hands first. We may see and even experience suffering beyond anything we have seen before, but trusting in our Father's hand will bring more joy than we have ever had.
