Sometimes God says “yes”.
Sometimes God says “no”.
Sometimes God says “yes, but not yet”.
Unfortunately, I’m not always very good at telling them apart. So – as has happened recently – I might think God’s saying “yes”, only for it then to seem that He’s actually saying “no”. At which point, of course, I become convinced that He must have actually been saying “yes, but not yet”.
But then there are two problems. The first is that I’m still not sure that I’m actually hearing God right. And the second is that I’m so impatient, the “not yet” bit does my head in. And tonight it’s *really* doing my head in.
