Here's a story about a lesson I learned in patience and trust in God, when I had to rescue my dog after he fell through a hole in the ice. He knows how to swim, but thinks he doesn't, and then gets scared when all four paws aren't touching the ground. But he found a tree branch, clung on to it, and waited patiently there to be rescued. He taught me the value of remaining calm and waiting on God, even when we are afraid. Waiting on God brings with it God's full presence, intelligence, and love, which rescues us from any situation, even ones that are unexpected!
