Lord, your timing is not my own for the most part; and your reasoning is beyond my comprehension on every hand. But I trust you. I put my full assurance in who you are and what you have done for me to date. You are worthy. You are faithful. You are loving. You are sovereign. You see past, present and future. I stand under the protection and promise of the cross in your name and according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So, when he heard that Lazarus was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was.” (John 11:5-6 ESV)
