Trusting God's Timing

Waiting On God's Timing

If we’re being honest, we’d say that waiting on God is not an easy thing to do. We may know intellectually that He is doing something, but in the midst of waiting, we can grow impatient and even doubtful about the outcome of our situation. We may doubt that God is on the throne and He reigns...both now and for eternity.

~Paraphrased from Anne Peterson, Christianity Today.

I don’t take the journey of forgiveness lightly. It is a treacherous road that I was personally entrusted to walk out myself, as you may have been. That journey taught me that careless advice about how to survive the most indescribable pain following what is often a life shattering experience, will harm more than help.
