Waiting

fullsizeoutput_b00

Waiting. We wait in line at the grocery store, we wait patiently for our appointment time at our doctor’s office, some of us even wait eagerly, with anticipation and excitement, for the thrill of being strapped into a one-person seat, as a black cushioned harness comes down over our shoulders and secures us to our spot, signaling the end of waiting and the beginning of twists and turns and heights and drops, that cause our stomachs to reside momentarily in our throats.

Yet, waiting on God can be one of the hardest places to be. Especially when life mimics a roller coaster and we feel we need His answer right now.

Of all the definitions of waiting in Numbers 9:8, the most significant is to be present. We’ve already travelled the road of yesterday and the road to tomorrow is waiting to be stepped upon. But, the here and now is where we can be fully present, nurturing our relationship with Jesus, while we wait for His perfect timing and answer for what we’ve been waiting.

Shalom!

  1. Amen, Terese! No matter how hard, it is better to wait. I am currently waiting on Him and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
