I am in Guatemala on a missions trip with Hearts in Action at the moment. I am sitting on the back patio reflecting on my journey thus far. As I prayed and fasted today, I heard a lot about trusting God even if what I am hoping for hasn’t been given to you yet. I also sensed in my spirit the word “obedience”. I was tested in choosing to be obedient in spite of what my flesh thought would be best for my soul.
Often times, when God places us in uncomfortable places, we want to jump out of the process. It feels like you are slowly easing your entire body into a pool of ice cold water. You have moments where you want to release your frustrations on others. You want to hide in your own quiet corner. You want to run away from the process. However, in spite of the discomfort, one thing I’ve learned is that prayer is the answer to all of the problems we face.
