waiting on God and unanswered questions

“Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question.”  Elizabeth Elliot

These words introduced our “Silence” last Sunday morning, and I thought of this post from a couple years ago.  I update it here with this quote and share it again.
There is as much uncertainty/as many unanswered questions as ever.

I gaze at the frozen lake…
the gray of late afternoon.
“It’s sad, here today,” I think.

Nothing here . . .
just cold
gray
lifelessness….

And You remind me . . .
There IS life here.
I just can’t see it.
Resting is your plan.

Help me know
You are still at work
even when it’s winter.

You Made both Summer and winter.  Psalms 74:17b

 

 

Linking with The Sunday Community this week.

you made winter and summer

  1. I am waiting for our house to sell, our move to be over and to be settled in my new place. I want God to be with me during this time of unsettleness.
