We (my family) find ourselves in a season of waiting, and, honestly, these days of waiting can be hard at times.
Not because we don’t know the presence and provision of the Lord in this time, but because…
- Not sure of what my/our purpose is in this time.
- Wondering what I/we should be doing.
- How should I spend my time?
So, we find ourselves wondering, hoping, longing, and sometimes even feeling discouraged.
Perhaps some of it too is the challenge of not having a place to call our own. We are eternally grateful for the hospitality and community of our friends (and hosts), but it isn’t the same.
Yet, we know that on the other side, God will give us exactly what He has for us and it will be just the right thing at the right time.
“I waited and waited and waited for God. At last he looked; finally he listened.”
Waiting is a game most of us would rather not play. It is difficult for the human heart to find contentment in divine processes that take longer than we would prefer. Yet, somehow, it is in waiting on God that the worshipper’s faith is transformed from being “me-centered” to being “God-centered.” Can you welcome the wait? Allow your worship experience to be heightened as you linger in confident expectation that God will hear the cry of your heart today. When we’ve learned to wait, we’ve truly learned to worship.
True words. I don’t want to take matters into my own hands and accelerate what God has coming. I don’t want my worship to be tainted by discontent and discouragement.
So, we face the challenge of waiting and trust in what God has for us for His glory.
