If you’re anything like me this is not my strong suit. In fact I’m pretty bad at it, and I don’t like it one bit. Ha! The Lord knows my inner most thoughts so why not be honest that I think waiting stinks! But I am reminded today that waiting is not only a part of life, BUT it’s an important part of our walk with Christ. If there was no wait for things in life how could we ever be truly thankful and content? Not only that why would we press in to the Lord even harder if there was nothing we were waiting for or seeking?
This stage of waiting in my life has made me realize how incapable I am on my own and how much I crave and thirst for the presence of God. I am like a sword being sharpened and refined in my waiting so I will be ready when the time comes, whenever that may be.
Through the waiting God has undoubtedly calmed fears in me. He has held my hand and reminded me who I am. The Lord has brought people to help me and encourage me at the exact times I have needed it, and He has reminded me again today that He is still with me!
So I praise Him in the wait. I will wait for Him in the wait. And I will love Him in the wait.
I hope you are encouraged today that He sees you in your wait. He will never leave you or forsake you, never!
