One of my favorite verses is Romans 8:28.
And we know that God causes everything to work togetherfor the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
This is a very common and popular verse. I would cling to this verse a lot my first couple of years of college. It was always an encouraging reminder for me when something wasn’t going the way I wanted it to.
However, my very favorite verse is Habakkuk 2:3.
If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently,for it will surely take place.It will not be delayed.
This verse is not as a popular, but it means so much to me. I tend to be an impatient person. It is certainly something I work on regularly. God brought this verse to my mind today as I was thinking of Romans 8:28. And as I thought about waiting patiently, for it will surely take place, I thought about God’s perfect timing. Even though I don’t always understand how or why or when, I choose to trust Him anyways. As I thought about the verse I thought about the plans we are making for Mexico. It’s a dream I’ve had for what feels like such a long time, and now here we are. The desire to serve somewhere was so strong I was willing to go alone. But knowing that my husband is going with me makes it even better. At times, our trip still feels like a dream, or something that is still so far away. But in reality it’s not. It’s approximately 3 months and 22 days away… but who’s counting, right?? I know that when we get there I will be so happy that I didn’t get what I wanted earlier. I know that every moment leading up it has and will prepare me for what God has in store for us. It has seemed slow in coming, but I know it has not been delayed.
