Season of Waiting

As we anticipate leaving for Chile in a mere two weeks, I look back at these past years and see time after time of waiting ... for support to be raised, for adoptions to be realized, for God's direction regarding our future as a family and in ministry. This quote struck a chord with me and I can only hope that the "praise and glory" for bringing us to this time and place will truly be ascribed to our great and wonderful God ...

"This season of waiting is always an essential qualification for successful service. God would have His children realize the utter inadequacy of all human means to accomplish His gigantic purposes, that thus the praise and glory might be afterwards ascribed exclusively to Him."

-Hugh D. Brown
