Faith and patience

I was reading my journal from more than three years ago. I was waiting for God to give us a baby - for me to be pregnant. I wrote about what God was speaking to me while we waited for His perfect timing.

The author of Hebrews in chapter 6 says to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. Then he goes on to use Abraham as an example. God promised Abraham that He would bless him and give him many descendants. The first child of that beautiful purpose-ful promise was Isaac. Hebrews 6:15 says, And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised. Sometimes faith works through patience. Full up, eyes ahead, toes on edge, eager eager, faith-filled patience.
