I’m convinced that one of the most telling ways to figure out what’s going on in your life is to take a good look at your meal planning routine.

What have you waited for? All of us have had experiences of desperate waiting, haven’t we? We can all recall a few (or more) heart pounding, pulse-racing moments when God seemed absent but was really there right with us. Every one of us has experienced those times when we really believed we couldn’t wait another moment for help or relief from a tragedy too large for us to handle.
