Waiting

I am in a waiting season... Waiting for my visa to come through so I can go to Brazil.

Originally I was scheduled to depart September 7th, and that has been postponed until my visa is approved. I am thankful for this extra time at home to rest and prepare, to spend precious time with friends and family, and to work a little more too! I know the Lord is ordering my steps. He is leading the way, and all He asks is that I follow Him.

"All those who want to be my disciples must come and follow me, because my servants must be where I am." John 12:26 NLT

Lately, I have been feeling like a small child who is following after and calling out to this big man up ahead of me named Jesus.

I cry out to Him, "Hey Jesus, where are you going?"

I run to try to keep up... I am not sure exactly what's going on or even where we are going. Those details really don't matter. All I know is that I want to follow Jesus. I want to be with Him. I want to go where He goes and do what He does. He is my hero. I just have to keep my eyes on Him and keep moving forward, following His leading.

That truly is my desire to follow Him like a child full of faith, adoration, and trust.
O' for grace to trust Him more...
