or “no”, but instead she is waiting.
She is waiting to hear if she will get an internship she has applied for. The final interview was last week, and they told her she would hear within a week. As each day passes she has to surrender her emotions to the Lord and ask Him to calm her anxious heart. As it gets close to being a week, I too am struggling to not over think and to trust God.
Each day that passes brings with it more opportunity, for both of
us, to surrender our will and to ask for the Lord’s will to be done.
Yesterday, I realized that if I was asking the Lord to guide and protect my daughter, if I truly trusted Him, then I should rejoice the same with either a “yes” answer or a “no.”
Samantha and I have been sharing verses to encourage one another to have peace and rest in God’s faithfulness. We hope to be able to rejoice in the Lord’s faithfulness even if a “no” comes.
We will only know the depth of this revelation when the answer
comes, but even in the waiting we have learned a lot about trusting, peace and God’s goodness.
