At noon Ivy called. We were in the center, on the citadel. She was happy and informed us that she is coming to Cluj, to be with us. It was a very sweet call and reassuring about her state of mind and willingness to join us. We read between the lines, of course, and maybe just maybe, this slow-slow process is good for her. Though it’s inconvenient, it’s painful, all things work together for the wellbeing of those who love God.
Yesterday, during our Lemudim zoom meeting, we talked about prayer. We have surrendered our heart to God, and we prayed earnestly, about many things. And not all prayers are answered in our timeline or in the way we want them answered. But years down the line, as we look back, we realize God did answer, in His way and His timing. While shaping our hearts to trust Him, to draw near to Him, to seek His heart.
As The Rolling Stones say: “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try some time, you might find you get what you need.” This is a great reminder often, when we give our kids what they need, and not what they want or what they ask for.
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 NIV
