This morning I was reading through 1 Timothy and this verse stuck out to me.

1 Timothy 5:4 But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and acceptable before God.

Obedience, not the end goal.

I know I've wrote about this before but it's a good thing to be reminded of: God isn't only interested in the end result but also the journey. It's easy for us to only think of the end result.

I'm His In The Waiting

Lately waiting has been difficult. From a Christian perspective waiting isn't pointless and we do more than just sit in a room and look off into the distance. Right? I think most of us know that but it doesn't make it any easier. While we wait to go to Ecuador we are moving towards it. While we rest in Him we are laboring to make it happen. One thing we're beginning to understand is that God does so much in the time between the beginning and the end. Think of someone's life. On his gravestone you only see a dash between two dates yet you know so much has happened between his birth and death. But sometimes when we are in a waiting period we are fooled into thinking the only thing that matters is when it started and finished. To keep the life analogy for a moment, that dash means more than just what that person did for a while. Truth be told that life affected all that came into contact with it. And so it is with waiting. Waiting isn't only for ourselves but it does something to all that come in contact with us.

Here is a poem I wrote this morning trying to express some of the things I've been feeling lately.
