Psalm 27:14 ” Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

I wish I could wait well, but I don’t. I wish I was patient in the midst of You working in me Lord, but I’m not. I wish I could rest in Your grace as I wait, but in my selfish eagerness to obtain what I desire, I tend to want to “help” You…pushing my will over Your Will for my life. Waiting is probably one of the hardest disciplines we’re called to do. We want to be in control of our lives…every detail of it. And waiting on the Lord’s timing takes that control out of our hands and places it into His. But the good news is that our hope and faith can be actively exercised while we wait, not to mention growing closer to God and learning more about ourselves. Waiting well is so much more than finally getting what we want…for it’s more about who we’ve become in the process.
