Exodus 14:14 - WFW
The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Sunday morning, as we were preparing for our final day at Strong Tower, I came across the above verse. I had to smile as I thought about the last few months, and how true the words of Exodus 14:14 are. God took care of everything, every detail, and is continuing to do so.
In July, we placed our house on the market and went through the many ups and downs that entails. I cleaned everyday (you know I have a toddler, right?); we made sure to be ready at any given moment should somone want to view the house. We prayed, we waited, we prayed, we waited.
During that time of waiting, we were able to watch God restore the marriage of good friends. They were on the verge of divorce, but we were able to see a miracle happen, and it has been amazing everyday since. If God had answered our prayer when we wanted, we would not have had a front row seat to that miracle.
We were able, during the waiting, to welcome a friend's little boy into the world, to celebrate another friend's second birthday, and so many other little moments that make life wonderful. Because of God's timing, we heard beautiful testmonies of adoption that members of our church family experienced.
God did, is doing, all the work. And we? We have only had to be still and trust in His leading, in His timing. This has been a season of learning and growth, and as I prayed in the beginning, God has shown himself off. And that makes it all worth it.
Be blessed today, and for more, wonderful Word Filled Wednesday posts visit Susan.
