Waiting on the Lord

Posted by Todd Cyphers on

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."
