You've probably heard this one before.
Ask God to teach you patience, and He will give you plenty of opportunities to learn how to be patient.
When New Year's Day 2013 came, I decided that this would be the year that I would meditate on two words.
And wouldn't you know, 2013 would be the year that could send any sane woman running in terror.
A corporate relocation.
Selling a house.
Buying a house.
Planning one son's college graduation.
Sending another son to college eight hours away.
Sending my youngest son to a new school to meet new teachers and new friends.
Saying goodbye to a much loved church.
Trying to find a new church.
Making new friends.
And yet, God kept whispering in my ear "Fear not."
I would open my Bible, and invariably, I would find one of many passages with these words.
And what happens when you live without fear? It makes a lot of room for God's peace, joy, and love.
Blessings, cafe friends!
