During Wave after Wave

The Girltalk Blog posted this quote the other day and I just needed to share:

“Our times are in God’s hands; it is well they are so. Believers are not to expect great wealth, long life, or to be free from trials. But all will be ordered for the best. And remark from Job’s history, that steadiness of mind and heart under trial, is one of the highest attainments of faith. There is little exercise for faith when all things go well. But if God raises a storm, permits the enemy to send wave after wave, and seemingly stands aloof from our prayers, then, still to hang on and trust God, when we cannot trace him, this is the patience of the saints. Blessed Saviour! how sweet it is to look unto thee, the Author and Finisher of faith, in such moments!”

~Matthew Henry

    Very good reminder for me today when dealing with certain frustrations related to house hunting. Good news though – I think we’re ready to make an offer on a place in M-town. Can’t wait to be closer to everyone. :)

      Awesome!! Yes house hunting is VERY stressful. In the course of buying our house, our people barely counter offered (like 1,500 under the list price only), we had to walk away, they called us 3 months later, they accepted out offer, then we got denied for a loan! Thankfully- obviously- things ended up working out in the end, but it can be rough! Good luck:)
