God, what’s the plan here?

The poet Robert Frost said poetry could make you “remember what you didn’t know you knew.”  I think waiting steadfastly in a challenge also can help us remember, reconnect, and re-center with what we didn’t know we knew too.

 If my thoughts, fears, anxieties swirl out of balance, temporarily, I can remember it is only a phase and it will pass.

 It is definitely not a time to “rewind videos of condemnation” as Jody Neufeld describes.

 Each time we face a “God, what’s the plan here” moment, we can know that we’re also nearing the “but God” moment, where we’ll see our story unfolding for God’s glory and for his good plans for us. (Jeremiah 29; Romans 8:28)

As we wait, Jesus changes us. We no longer see the need to know how we’ll be delivered. We come to know that, no matter how the story ends, it includes the phrase, “but God is our Deliverer.” (2 Samuel 22:2) ~Jon Walker

When the “Why” days arrive, (and they will arrive often unexpectedly), we have a choice: abandon faith or await with faith…hold on to our control or let go and trust.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
