Most of us these days are not particularly good at waiting. In fact, we have become a generation of get-it-done-faster-multitaskers.
Clearly the challenge of learning to be patient in waiting is nothing new to man – God’s Word is full of verses to equip us. We find instruction and promise in our own school verse,
“But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
If you have stepped on our campus recently, you may have noticed the construction fence around the location of the new High School building and thought, “What are they waiting for?” The answer is simple: Permits. As we wait to do things in the proper order, that means doing things with the proper permits in place. In the meantime, we are actively planning, preparing and - most importantly – praying so when the permits come through, we are ready to build! God’s Word says, “Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14
As we wait – and prepare – we excitedly anticipate Groundbreaking to be sometime in November; more information coming soon. We look forward to sharing how our growing school is building lives, leaders, and legacy for a lifetime!
