As I wrote the title of this blog about waiting on God, I realized that any of you who frequent my blog have also been waiting on me for the last month. I'm sorry about that. I am afraid that I have been busy waiting on the Lord.
Having some idea of what changes our life would be going through at the arrival of Cosette in June, my wife and I began praying about our job/financial situation back in January or February of this year. It is now nearly September and our job situation is essentially unchanged since Allison quit at Caribou Coffee to have the baby.
Now, I am writing this not because I want your advice about my specific situation. Primarily, this blog has not functioned as a personal diary or a place for me to seek advice from loving and well-meaning friends and strangers. I am writing this for another reason:
I want to hear about times when You have had to wait on the Lord. What's the longest you have had to wait? How do you discern God's will? What are some hindrances you have found to hearing God's direction?
Now, it's true that Allison and I are facing some difficult times these days. But God has blessed us and sanctified us through this process. So again I say: I am not seeking advice about my particular situation. Instead, I want to hear you share your experiences of waiting on God. Perhaps these testimonies will help or encourage someone else in a similar situation.
