"As soon as we acknowledge God to be the supreme architect, who has erected the beauteous fabric of the universe, our minds must necessarily be ravished with wonder at His infinite goodness, wisdom, and peace." ~John Calvin
When Aaron and I arrived at our marriage retreat in October, the sky was bright blue and clear. But the next day we watched clouds and fog roll in. The skies stayed overcast, and our second day on top of the mountain we could only see a few feet in front of us. Throughout our time there, neither one of us felt much clarity or direction from the Lord about how or when to move ahead. We didn't hear a voice saying, "Go!" All we heard was, "Stay right where you are." So that's what we did. The fog is still there, but it is beginning to lift a little as we look ahead to 2016.
We're grateful that God is the "supreme architect" of our lives. Those of you who pray for us and encourage us and listen to us and support us every step of the way through the fog - oh, how thankful we are for you! The fog may lift and we just might find ourselves hurtling down the mountain at a crazy pace to return to the Solomon Islands. And God will be with us every step of the way with His goodness and wisdom and peace, equipping us with everything we need to do those good works He has prepared in advance for us to do.
