We are in this state of waiting. Yep… uggghh… waiting. I have kept people waiting for me many times. But no, please do not make me wait (haha!). Everything is pretty much ready. Thailand, here we come! But our visas are not here yet. For some reason, it is late– very, very late. Everyday I have to check my mail for some good news. None.
This reminds me of the Israelites in the wilderness. No signboards, no roadmaps. Just a pillar of cloud by day, a pillar of fire by night. Everyday they had to wait for specific instructions. There were times that HE speaks in a thundering voice.. but many times there were just quiet moments. Follow the pillar. Period. Wait. No grumbling, no questioning. There are no billboards, follow signs and streets. Just a promise.
People who know us would ask us if we are scared of the uncertainties that await us. The “what if’s” in life. Surprisingly, even strong Christians would try to question our going– on the risks that we are bringing our family into. I would just tell them I wish I knew… I wish there are roadmaps, signboards that would tell me what it is out there, what would become of my kids and of us years from now. But no, I do not have that right now. All I have is a promise– and I am okay with that.
