“It is often during a time of waiting, of seemingly just treading water, that God is silently, imperceptibly at work, molding and forging us as His instruments. One British candidate for the ministry became frustrated and impatient that it was taking so long for her to go through the preparation to be released for missions in India.
“Amy (Carmichael) wrote to her, ‘Think of these two or three years as given to forging the blade for what only a blade of that temper can do.’
“It may be a time of growing, stretching, squeezing, pruning and purging, but God is forming us into the men and women of God He can use best.”
~Paul L. King in Moving Mountains
