We've been sitting in "Patience & Waiting" this week. This waiting thing is tough, isn't it? How long will we have to wait until things go back to "normal"? We have been blessed with some pretty amazing thoughts from a Wichita State Student, a Council Member of Fairmount, and a local Pastor.
We've included the two other posts from this week in case you need to catch up, or watch/read them again because they are SO good!
In this time of waiting, what can I do?
Clara kicked-off the week with some profound thoughts pertaining to Romans 12:12.
Lord, grant me patience right now! I'm tired of waiting!
Vicki reminds us that impatience can be a sin, but there is hope in Christ and she offers some great encouragement looking at Romans 8:24-15
We'd like to introduce you to a new friend of Fairmount, Pastor Aaron Hannemann. He's the Pastor of Outreach & Evangelism at Ascension Lutheran Church in Wichita and is also serving as the Pastoral Advisor at Fairmount Ministries & Coffee Company! Next time you see Pastor, in person or virtually, welcome him to Wichita and to the Fairmount Fam!
In this week's Digging Deeper, Pastor offers some insight into what Scripture says in Isaiah 40:28-31 and waiting. Watch, "But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength:"
Isaiah 40:28-31 English Standard Version (ESV)
28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. 29 He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. 30 Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; 31 but they who wait for 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.
