What is God's plan in all of this?

I wish there was a way to see a glimpse into the future just a bit so I know what is going to happen. I wish I knew that our house was going to sell before we move to Kenya. I wish I knew what this last month in the US is going to hold. I wish we knew if we were going to ship a container full of donated goods and some of our personal items. I just wish a lot of questions would be answered. Yes, it is all answered in God's timing but sometimes I just get so impatient and want to know now. This time of unknowns has helped me to draw closer to my Father though. To cling to Him and seek His Word for answers. Sometimes I just feel so angry though that we don't know more and that this journey was not so tumultuous.

A friend of mine texted me this today and the Lord knew just what I needed to hear! "'You are the one who determines the depth of your relationship with God.' Don't waste time by complaining about your waiting period. Embrace a deeper relationship." What a great challenge! What a great mindset. Thank you, Lord, for friends who remind me of how my attitude should be through this waiting period! I want to embrace a deeper relationship with you, Father!
