I well remember a cross-country road trip with my parents where this question was asked incessantly by my sisters and myself. The long and winding road—hour upon hour, mile after mile—was just that—winding and WAY too long! Even though Disneyland was our desired and final destination, nothing seemed worth this never-ending agony. Are we there yet being our constant plea for mercy!
In these days of COVID-19 confinement, undoubtedly many of us feel that way. With a serious global pandemic touching and taking lives in 185 nations, our hearts grow weary and our patience grows thin. At least mine does. Much like our childhood cross-country escapade, I find myself asking, “Are we there yet?” My parents knew what it would take to get to Disneyland. How much more does God know the way forward. He is the God of the now, the not yet, and eternity!
AND, yes, He is the God of today. So, we can savor each moment of each day as we watch and wait together. Here are some ways we are doing just that at Women in the Window International:
- Monthly prayer gatherings in our WiW “zoom room”
- Daily connections with women leaders in Africa, Asia and the Middle East on WhatsApp
- Preparations being made to equip and empower women leaders, replacing poverty and injustice with dignity and purpose in Christ through online learning platforms & updated curriculum
The voice of our Lord Jesus is not silent. In fact, it is not even muffled. As we join our hearts with women in other nations daily, it is striking to learn how we all hear the same message of repentance and restoration. Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Remember, “…He is able to save forever (to the uttermost!) those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25. And that, my friend, is my continued prayer. May we draw near to His throne with full confidence that He not only hears but that He will abundantly answer.
Yours because I’m His,
