The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me. - Psalm 138:8 (NRSV)
When my father passed away, my neighbors gave me a small orchid to place in the windowsill. At the time it had a beautiful bloom, but the bloom eventually died. My wife and I kept watering the plant and waiting for another bloom. Several years passed; the orchid was alive...
I will trust God to act according to God’s timing.
For patience in waiting for God
