So when I read this quote this morning as part of my devotions, it spoke volumes to me:
Above all, trust in the slow work of God. We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay. We should like to skip the intermediate stages. We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new. Yet it is the law of all progress that it is made by passing through some stages of instability -- and that it may take a very long time.-- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (emphasis added)
OK, God, I hear you. Message received.
Now back to packing boxes, address changes, canceling services, tracking down people I've borrowed things from, etc. etc. etc.
