Look friends! Look what is happening in the hole in my backyard!!! It might not look a whole lot different than when I posted about it here, but the point is that progress is being made!! I can see it! I can even hear it as the compressor goes over the sand and gravel. Oh, what a wonderful sight to my waiting eyes!
This project has taken far longer than I’d anticipated. It’s caused disappointment, frustration and even despair! At times I even believed it was impossible. I have gazed out my window so often and pictured what that finished patio was going to look like. I could see people sitting around the fire pit, laughing, talking enjoying the warmth of the fire while piling toasted marshmallows onto golden crackers. I could imagine it – but I couldn’t really see it, because it wasn’t a reality.
But now I see progress! Something is moving out there! There is tangible evidence that change is being made, and I can’t contain my excitement!
Can we make the connection with the trial that you’re facing right now or with the prayer request that seems impossible? Or the person that shows no interest whatsoever in coming to faith in Christ? At times all you see is an “ugly hole in your backyard!” Nothing is happening or changing! Let me encourage you to keep peering out the window with eyes of faith! There will be a Day when you will say, “But Now I see progress…”
Faith can wait.
Therefore I will look unto the Lord;
I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me. Micah 7:7
