“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)
We keep thinking what do we do now?
I have to admit I keep thinking wait… which sounds mad at the moment because we will need somewhere to live…but I still keep thinking wait (for the time being) and I am wondering if it is God speaking.
We have been looking at other places to buy, there is nothing in Shetland currently that we are really interested in, or Orkney. There was one in Orkney that was nice, but it has gone under offer and it wasn’t really what we wanted. We have also been looking at some other places in totally different parts of the country and pushing a door or two. I love looking at property adverts. I love looking around homes as well, but unfortunately the ones we are looking at online are too far away to view at the moment.
So…what to do?… I think lean on the Lord and wait on Him. Keep pushing a few doors and listen.
I remembered today, one item that was on my bucket list “lean totally and utterly into God and come to know him more and more and deeper and deeper” – be careful what you wish for crossed my mind (haha). But it is the only way for me. Jesus is the only way for me.
One thought on “faith and love”
It’s an adventure all the way, and if the only thing you learn during this time is understanding what it means to wait and listen and be still, you’ll be further along the road than you realise. I spent 3 years meeting up with a friend for what was next, and all we kept hearing was ‘wait.’ We doubted so many times but kept coming back to it. Our relationship in that time changed immeasurably, as did our relationship with God, and reading your post I’ve only just realised it. And only just realised what I’ve been learning about waiting and trusting God. It’s worth the journey, however hard. So, enjoy the moment, push the doors, look at the adverts and know that whatever, God has promised to lead you, and He will. Enjoy your day. x
