God gives us what we need. It’s just not on our timetable. The problem is, I don’t even know what I really need sometimes. Maybe I’m just dense. The arc of my learning curve is way longer than I expected.
It seems to be taking a long time to “get my ducks in a row.” I realize some progress, but I’m certainly not where I want to be – not where I thought I’d be by this time.
This week I had a flash of realization. I haven’t got all the ducks I need yet, which is why they can’t be put in order. I’m still chasing down the ducks, and ducks seem to be more difficult to herd than cats. See the image above.
The reason I’ve figured this out is that I’ve been watching Patricia Durgin’s videos. Here’s a link to her site: https://marketersonamission.com/ Her mission is to help Christian writers and speakers get the message out. She’s a joyful servant who has so much helpful information. I am learning things that I was only vaguely aware I needed. The Lord is using her in dynamic ways to supply my ducks. Yea!
Maybe it won’t be long before I can actually start putting them in order. Baruch ata Adonai Eloheinu.
