Waiting is perhaps one of the hardest things to do in life…no matter how young or old a person is. My son can’t wait for the school year to be over. My daughter can’t wait until graduation day in a few weeks. We can’t wait for warmer weather. The list could go on and on…
When life becomes complicated, and we find ourselves in seemingly endless situations that are emotionally, physically, mentally, and/or socially draining, well, waiting, becomes that much more difficult.
Have heart. Keep the faith. Trust in the promises in His Word.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 NLT
Be strong and courageous, all you who put your hope in the Lord! Psalm 31:24 NLT
Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 NLT
I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in His word. Psalm 130:5 NLT
Be still in the Lord and wait patiently for Him to act. Psalm 37:7
The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9
This week, God revealed His love in a strong way to me. My prayer has been to find balance between work and home…to not feel as though I am drowning at work, to not feel as though I have nothing left to give when I get home because I am so exhausted from work, to find a healthy balance between a job I love and my precious family I absolutely love and adore…
And God revealed Himself strongly this week. His love, His care, His compassion.
My encouragement to you…if you are waiting for something, finding yourself caught in a difficult situation right now, do not grow weary. Instead, pray over the promises in His Word. Trust in His perfect timing. He cares. He hears your heart.
