the getting of going

i loving the going. i love being there and i love the traveling, but man, the planning is a pood.

still i wait for a plane ticket and visa; i feel like i'm going to pee my pants because it's so close! one month! i leave in one stinkin month. do visas come that quickly? i dunno. i feel like not. now the plane tickets have already gotten more expensive since last week, (okay like two hundred dollars, but still!).

psalm 27:13-14 says
"I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.

Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD."

and the ever-popular isaiah 40:28-31 says
"Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

i'm waiting. most of the time i'm not waiting in the confidence of the Lord, (as evidence by urge incontinence...well, not fully incontinence-just the urge part). prayer would be super. God has always proven Himself faithful, yet i seem to forget that in the moment by moment of living. i am butt-tired, but how faithful is God to get me up each day and to prove that He is in control. i want to run to india, but man, the waiting.
