Waiting on the Lord
Wait on the LORD, what a tough command. After several weeks of struggling to sleep with a bruised rib and now one week into recovery from eye surgery, I have a better understanding of myself. Frail, weak, broken; that would best describe me if it were only me. Our reading this week from Psalm 27:14 says: "Wait for the LORD, be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the LORD."
Waiting on the LORD is a difficult calling when one wants so bad to get going. As I have one more week face down, this leads me to several observations:
- Waiting can be refreshing and miserable. I am choosing to be refreshed in Him today.
- He ordains unusual ways to put us in places of waiting on Him. Today I trust Him.
- His people and His Word are invaluable in times of waiting; I choose to enjoy both today.
I have been blessed by texts, calls, cards, food and more. Waiting on Him has been more enjoyable because of you.
"LORD, I pray for all those waiting on You. Meet them with Your presence and Your people."
