This year, and the next few years are a time of prepa­ra­tion for us. We don’t real­ly know what the future will hold and where God is lead­ing us, but we have fol­lowed His guid­ance and are in the midst of a sea­son of training.

It’s frus­trat­ing and hard at times, no know­ing whether we are mak­ing the right deci­sions, what we will be doing in 1, 2, or even 5, 10, 20 years time and know­ing that our hopes and dreams and plans may not be the way for­ward. But I have been par­tic­u­lar­ly encour­aged this year to trust in God and hold onto
His promises. 

Today I read this quote by Connie ten Boom, what an encour­age­ment to keep on walk­ing through this sea­son even if it does­n’t always seem to be lead­ing to an obvi­ous destination.

Every expe­ri­ence God gives us, every per­son he puts on our path, is the per­fect prepa­ra­tion for a future that only He can see.
