Attain and Sustain
Melissa—In a conversation with a dear friend today, regarding why some things (after much prayer) have still not happened, this hit me: We want fast answers (basically bandaids). The long lasting, deep, most satisfying things take longer because we have to have the understanding and character to not only attain them but to sustain them. This kept coming back to me all day. It has been one of those kinds of days where I have been hearing about the sovereignty of God unfolding in friends’ lives (that which God has been doing all along coming to the point where we can see it). It’s been that kind of day where one quietly sits back and realizes your mouth is hanging open in awe.
