Jason and I have been on a journey for the last several months exploring the option of church planting in Utah. We have been praying and working with two organizations that assist, support, and back you in this process. We continue to get green lights with each step but their are still more steps to take and the "driving time" in between lights can seem long. The last two days I've started to struggle again with the patience that it takes to not always know the plan and have the laid out schedule. I was doing really good for so long. While laying on my bed this morning, I thought, let me quick read the days entry from the book I'm reading and then I need to get on with my day . . . when I opened to the next page I was really taken back by the words and so thankful that God met me JUST WHERE I AM!! Maybe these words will encourage you with whatever you may be waiting on!

Wait on Me, My princess. My timing is always perfect. I know you're anxious about many things, and I see your passion for all the plans I have put in your heart. I know that you long to fly, and I see your enthusiasm. However, just as a vine dresser nurtures the vine and waits patiently for the right moment to harvest the grapes, so too am I working tirelessly to prepare you to bear much fruit. Don't run ahead of Me or try to fly before My plans are complete. Your strength will fail you, and your dreams will wither away. Trust Me that My dreams for you are far greater than you can dream on your own. You will run farther and soar higher if you will patiently wait for the season of My blessing. Draw close to Me now, and I promise that this season of waiting will bring you the sweetest of rewards.
Your King and Lord of perfect timings
Isaiah 40:31 "But those who wait on the Lord will find new strength. They will fly high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint."
