So here we are having a bit of "pause" season before the Lord.
It's not my favorite thing to slow down when you don't know what's coming next. It's uncomfortable and hard to enjoy the moment.
We have been saying a lot of goodbye's to people these days. Nigel and Karen. Kerstin. Our little community here at Gnadenhaus is all broken up and now the big question is "What's next?"
Our schedule was fairly full up until the end of last month and then we could enjoy our home a bit and the flexibility of an open schedule.
So we started fasting a few days ago. And listening. Mostly the hardest thing has been to discover places in our hearts where God wants to bring healing and wholeness.
"For thus the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, has said, "In repentance (returning) and rest you will be saved, In quietness and trust is your strength." Isaiah 30:15
Returning... again and again, we return to the truth of who God is. Of who we are. We are still before Him. We recognize afresh His greatness, His power and altogether nothingness and emptiness without Him.
We are also waiting on what is next. But from a place of REST.
