Yesterday Denise told us that we are now at about 70% of our monthly pledge need. While we are still 30% away from 100%, we are not where we were a few months ago and, we are convinced, we are not where we will be in God's good time according to His good will. And that's the governing word: good. God is good. He is not capricious or fickle nor does He play games with His children. He calls, He provides, and remains present throughout the journey.
Walking through the Redwoods on our way down from stopping with Heyns and Hanna in Portland, we were reminded of how small we really are in the scheme of things!
Or driving through Yosemite in the midst of those massive mountains...or camping at the foot of the Sierras...we are small...so small. But God is immeasurable and yet He cares for each one of us. He has been reminding us of both the MP's as we drive along. We pray wherever we go, talking to Him about what we see, where we are going, what we will be needing...like campsites. He has never failed to bring us to the right spot at the right time. It is as the Psalmist says...the Lord delights in us.
And every time we experience His delight it is a reminder that He who governs the universe knows our needs, hears our prayers, and will answer in His good time according to His good will because He is good and because He is with us.
