So we got an email this Wed (May 11) that said our case was submitted to the Embassy Tuesday, May 10.
NOT last Tuesday as originally communicated.
I am emotionally frazzled.
I have been checking my email every 5 minutes.
I have been getting up in the middle of the night to check my email (because Ethiopia is 7 hours ahead of us).
And then thoughts like "what if my email is not communicating with the Embassy's email and I missed the email" keep running thru my mind.
I have not been able to concentrate on anything. . .and have been glued to my computer.
And I have been like that all last week, now I know. . . needlessly
And then here I am again this week.
So AGAIN, I sure would appreciate prayers that our case passes thru with no red flags. . that nothing needs to be investigated further. . and that we are simply assigned travel dates. We should hear the end of this week or early next week. . .maybe.
And I would appreciate prayers for the grace to "Be still, and know He is God". I would appreciate prayers that I realize who I am really waiting on. . that I am able to look back at God's long track record of perfect timing and faithfulness. Because as my girlfriend reminded me (cause I am barely thinking straight)::
You are not waiting on the Embassy.
You are not waiting for an email.
You are actually waiting on Him.
Where I Went!!
