Thought to share: Waiting is not easy. When the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into months and the months turn into years, it is easy to become disheartened. In your discouragement, you often wonder where I AM. You doubt MY promises are true. You question whether or not I heard you or want to take care of you. But today, I remind you that I AM faithful. I encourage you to rest patiently in ME. I assure you, I AM at work and MY timing is perfect. The waiting is not wasted, because I waste nothing. There is treasure in the waiting. So trust ME – it’s all coming together at just the right time.
Psalm 27:14 (NLT) Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.
James 5:7-8 (The Message) Meanwhile, friends, wait patiently for the Master’s Arrival. You see farmers do this all the time, waiting for their valuable crops to mature, patiently letting the rain do its slow but sure work. Be patient like that. Stay steady and strong.
The waiting is not wasted because He wastes nothing! Just the best thought best thought I’ve had today — and I was thinking I’ve been having lots of good thoughts!
Thanks Kim. God is faithful! I really like the last phrase – ‘just at the right time’.
these always encourage me….a mid week shot in the arm from Holy Spirit… 🙂
