Preparations

God is never in a hurry, but spends long years with those whom He expects to use greatly, and never thinks the days of preparation too long or too dull. When He permits delay, He is not inactive. He is getting ready His instruments, ripening their powers, and at the appointed moment they shall arise equal to their tasks.

-Phillip Brooks

"Behold, God is exalted by His power;
Who teaches like Him?"
Job 36:22

Great pick for a quote to post, Bethany! A good reminder to be content where we are, and not rush ahead of our Master's perfect timing.

Thank you for posting it. I was encouraged and uplifted!!

Many hugs across the many miles!:)
