Strength will Rise...

I love that Praise Song with the lines...Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord, as we Wait upon the Lord, as we WAIT upon the Lord...This song has been in my head for the past week. I know the Lord put it in my head, because that is right where we are...WAITING.
Mark started his Last DTS semester this week. So hard to believe that this "crazy life change decision" is coming to an end and possibly resulting in an even Crazier life change.
I like Plans. I like to be in control. I knew where I wanted to go to college when I graduated high school, what I wanted to major in, and when I graduated what I wanted to do. I even knew that I was going to marry Mark WAY before he knew he wanted to marry me. Not that I was a slave to my plans, God had other avenues for us that in hindsight were absolutely perfect, although I definitely didn't think that at the time.
I want to know where in the world we will be, what we will be doing, what our family will look like. This Waiting game is so hard, but strangely empowering. We have to rely on Him to direct our paths...there is no way I can control our plans, which is a good thing.

Amen girl. I think back on what my plans were at different times in my life and thank God that I was not as "in control" as I thought I was. Praying that His plans for the Lambs will be a much sweeter surprise than you could ever imagine!!

My Sweet Sister,

I copied this so that I can save and look at each day. As you may have guessed, this touched me in a special way and those lyrics are just what I need right now; I shall also pass them to one or two others who could use it right now. ;-) Love you!!!

Man I needed this! I love that song, but so often I sing it without taking in the words! Thank you for sharing!
