I feel like God has been whispering to me lately, “Don’t get ahead of me.” 

In times of personal tragedy and even in the everyday stresses of sports tryouts, home purchases, and job changes, part of trusting God is learning to sit with Him in the in-between. Learning to not rush to the conclusion and missing the lesson He has in the middle. 

We have had a tricky few weeks in our home, and yet I see our prayers changing. I see our hearts changing and our trust changing. I wonder if part of following God is learning to stride it out and not rushing the story’s end. 

So I’ll choose to be present today, even when the storm cloud is looming, because what I’m finding is following God may be learning to be held in the rain.
