Big Ideas from Today’s Show
1. When the wait feels endless, we can practice taking God at His word.
No matter our circumstances or how we feel, Xochitl reminds us that we can take God at His Word. In the middle of our waiting, we can rest in God’s truth and believe that He will carry us through.
2. As we acknowledge the constant presence of God, we can walk and wait in the power of God.
When we actively acknowledge God’s presence all throughout our day, He empowers us to take the next step in the right time. Some practical ways to acknowledge His presence is through prayer, thanksgiving, or worship.
3. God weaves every detour and delay into His all-encompassing plan for all His people.
All of our stories are interconnected with one another, and when we look around, we can see the ways that God is moving and working in the lives of others. In Xochitl’s words, “If he could work in their lives, then He will work in my life…We might not be waiting for the same thing, but we trust in the same God, and He is never changing.
