Ok, it's no surprise to anyone about how much I want to go back to Africa, but I'm not there yet, I am here. And a wise friend told me to be content where I am right now. I told him, 'yah, yah, of course, yah, I'm totally gonna be content, yah, cool, content...'
THEN, I read these verses this morning:
"Woe to those...who say, 'Let God hurry, let him hasten his work so we may see it. Let it approach, let the plan of the Holy One of Israel come, so we may know it.' " -Isaiah 5:19
And I knew these words for me. I saw myself as a little child pestering daddy about when that big exciting trip to Disneyland will be, everyday, asking, pleading, going even so far as to make it go faster for God, "helping him" make it happen.
I'm not sure what the "woe" is in the verse above but I've decided to not find out. Time to let go of the reins AGAIN!
