Day 36: remaining

A crossover from the church bible challenge blog, just because I kind of liked it.

Epiphany's Bible Challenge

Exodus 40; Psalm 30; Mark 3

“Whenever the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, the Israelites would set out on each stage of their journey; but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day that it was taken up.”

A lesson in not getting ahead of God.

A parable of patience.

Oblivion to the signs of the timeless leads only to oblivion itself;

haste makes waste.

Forty years is but forty winks in the eyes of The Lord.

How long, O Lord, how long?

Silence, say the smoke signals; patience.

Follow me. You will not lead me on;

I will not steer you wrong.

A parable of patience;

a lesson in listening,

in not getting ahead of God.
