Words on waiting: has God forgotten you?

In March of 2009 I wrote a post titled: Words on waiting: has God forgotten you?

Someone commented on that post recently so I took the time to re-read my post.

I said to Ryan, "I'm amazed that I wrote that post!" I am even more amazed that my post now speaks to me - particularly this statement: "They get the job while you or your spouse wait for the call."

I didn't know when I wrote that post that 18 months later we would be waiting for a call about a job.

Yet my post reminds me that God knew. He knew when Ryan would switch jobs and when he would lose his job and when he will start his next job.

And he doesn't owe us an explanation for his timing around any of those events. I don't think that God has forgotten us because I have experienced His faithfulness - both in my life and in the lives of others.

I hadn't read the Wait Poem once during this time. It was so good for me to let those words soak into my heart again.

God has not forgotten us......and we have not forgotten His faithfulness.

And his answers are always better, more perfect and more surprising as we would have thought before!
