It is perfect.

“But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations.” ~Psalm 33.11

A good friend of mine prayed aloud in prayer a few years ago a prayer of supplication that I think about often. She asked the Lord to help her not become frustrated with His perfect timing.

How profound. How convicting.

We receive weekly updates from our agency with scripture, encouragement, prayer requests and any updates we may need to know. This past week was a little bit of a bummer. We were told the time frame in between dossier submission and our referral has been extended to 14-18 months. Geez, that’s a long time.

I totally thought we were a quarter of the way through. At least.

Regardless, I have a God to trust in that knows what’s up. We’ll pray it is not that long, but I will trust that He knows best and that His timing really is perfect.

I’m so thankful to serve a God who is outside of time and space, that knows all things, rules all things and does everything – EVERYTHING¬†– for His rightful Glory and the good of His beloved people.

And we are in the beloved :) Praise the Lord!

Sweet encouragement from our agency, written by Paul Tripp: God’s Will for Your Wait
