Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Growing...


Growing, waiting, trusting that His timing is perfect. He is doing something in me that is way beyond myself. When we wait on the Lord is when we learn patience. God has given all of us specific promises for our life, even though often we find ourselves waiting for God to work.

The waiting is when we grow, and I have learned that in the valley is when He does a work in us, when He prepares us. In the waiting is when our eyes look from our struggles and troubles and look upwards to Him. In the waiting is when I have turned to Him and poured over His love letter to us that promises over and over how He will care for me. That He is faithful and the ultimate promise keeper.

"Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength:
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:31
