On the Edge

Have you ever felt as if you were standing on the edge of a huge cliff and looking down? You're not quite sure if you're about to soar or to fall. Well, that's how I feel right now. We have a decision to make that might lead to incredible heights. Or, it might cause a painful crash. We're just not sure.

So, what do we do?

We cry out to God. We cry aloud for wisdom. After all, that's what God tells us to do.

James 1:5-6 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

So, this morning my husband and I asked God for wisdom. And then I asked God for the faith to believe and not doubt that He will grant us wisdom. Now we wait -- expectantly, hopefully, even with excitement -- we wait to see the invisible footprints of our wise and loving God.

  1. Praying for you my friend. I read your comment on P31 blog and found you here. So good to see you!!! Did you know our adoption went through. We have a baby girl in Ethiopia who is waiting for us to come and get her. I have photos on my blog in last week's posts if you want to see her. Oh my goodness, Elaine when we first got the call about her I felt like God was asking me to jump off the edge.I am so glad I did!!! Soaring high, but tucked safely under the shelter of His wings!!!

    Love you!
