Crazy, Peace

Peace and crazy. Two words you wouldn't necessarily put together in one sentence. Unless, that is, you are following God's directive and then it does. We were presented with a B.I.G. decision last Friday. The solution would've solved a large problem and would have created others, although shorter term, still problems. We put it on paper. It was a painful choice, but sometimes choices God has us make are painful. And, we must trust Him to fill in the blanks. On the other hand, it was potentially a decision that was out there to really test our faith in the wait.
Would we step forward or trust and wait? Would we act out of flesh because we're really ready for a solution to this issue or would we wait on Him. We've stepped out in flesh before. We didn't want to do that again. So, we prayed and went to bed. Woke up with good questions we hadn't considered the night before. Went back to the put the new information on paper and discovered a few errors we'd made the day before. So, we asked God if He would answer by Monday, at the latest, and placed it in His hands again.
There are times when I want God to do something and it would be so incredibly awesome if He'd do it now and my way. Then an opportunity presents itself. Said opportunity "looks" like it could be an answer, although aspects of it don't feel so good. Lacking in complete peace. But ... so, rather than be impulsive, as one has been before, you've learned to sleep on it and pray about it.

And God ... He is faithful. He answered us by closing the door we almost impulsively walked through and He even did it before Monday. Thankful!
