JUST THINKIN' . . . a devotional by Jim Green


SCRIPTURE:  “And Peter stayed a long time in Joppa, living with Simon, a tanner of hides.” Ac 9:43 NLT

SEE IT:  Waiter

JIMISM:  6573. I have no problem waiting—for a while. JG

LIVE IT: It was in 2010 that I closed my business and planned to move east to the Smoky Mountain area.  But when asked to stick around for a while, my wife and I moved in with my oldest daughter and our three teen-aged grandchildren.  Now, nine years later, the children are moving out but our moving out seems less likely than ever. That’s okay because it’s obvious now that we needed this time to prepare for our next move which won’t be limited to one direction.

PRAY IT: I’ve never been disappointed, God, but must admit I’m often surprised.

FIND IT: Mission; Stay; Wait

APPLY IT: Use time in the “waiting” room to spend time with God.

I have no problem waiting—for a while.
