There have been a couple of scenarios lately where I have felt led to act in moves toward reconciliation, one an old wound, one a more recent one, relatively speaking. I know what I felt impressed to do, and I did so.
But in one case I had hoped there would be a response, but there has been none. In the other, I really didn't know what would happen, and the response has me a bit perplexed.
I am an a+b=c type of person, and life just isn't like that.
So I wait.
In one case I wait on a response that may never come.
In the other I wait to respond so that I can sort out what is my humanness and what is of the Spirit stirring in my heart. I want to act on Truth.
I want those happily ever after endings, but something I heard Beth Moore say once is that if you exercise the spiritual gift of mercy without accountability, you are not acting in the Spirit.
So I wait. I wait for words from others and words for me to speak.
