The First of Many

Most of you reading this already know about me and the blog I have been keeping for the past several years. This blog will take a slightly different twist from The Clow Communicator. I am happy to get started on what I hope is the first of many posts to come.

You may be wandering why I titled the blog Standing Silent. The past few months have been...well...for now let's say...difficult! God is refining, reviving and renewing John and I and our four kiddos. We are in a "waiting hold" not knowing what the next step will be for us. Two weeks ago I was a last minute stand in teacher for Evan's Sunday school class. I looked around the classroom and the only material I could find were coloring sheet on Moses crossing the Red Sea. While Evan and his best friend Silas (the only ones in the class) colored Moses I read from Exodus 14. One verse JUMPED off the page at me: "...Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today." Exodus 14:13

Today I am standing still. I am watching and waiting to see the salvation of the LORD. Come quickly Lord Jesus. Come quickly!
