Five Minute Friday … All writing, no editing! Join our community over on Kate’s blog; where we share from the heart, throwing grammar and punctuation to the wind!
I’ve attempted this post three times in the past six days! The words come to me in God’s timing … and I wait on them before I venture forth. =)
Today’s (Friday, the 30th’s) Prompt is: Wait … Go!
There is a lot we wait for in our life times. We spend time waiting on line, on hold and on God. And there in lies the key.
Waiting on God and His perfect timing. For me this took much discipline over the years. I (we) want answers and guidance right now … but good comes to those who wait, and who wait on the Lord. Right? Do I hear your amen(s) echoing out there?
My soul still remembers
And sinks within me.
This I recall to my mind,
Therefore I have hope.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.
It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.
There is much I (we) wait for here in Hutchland these days. The most pressing is healing and restoration! Cancer, Heart Issues, Obesity and Addictions; they all are what we are waiting for in all faith, trusting God at His Word. Knowing His promises are secure and our blessings are in the acknowledgement that healing and restoration was attained in our Salvation.
We have hope … in Jesus. Not the wishfullness that the world sees as hope. Our hope is in the Lord and we will do all that we know to do. We are utilizing every option that God has presented to us in these life trials we are struggling with.
And then … We wait …
and … Be still [wait] , and know that He IS God; He will be exalted among the nations, He will be exalted in the earth.
And in the wait, in the hope, in the clinging to God’s Faith, I find myself assured of the Answer. I find control of emotion and wisdom in the wait when I rely upon Him for the answers.
He, God, Jesus, Holy Spirit is also Answer.
So as I (we, YOU) wait, rely on God and His perfect timing. And when you wander from the line, losing your place, repeat this …
I trust YOU, Jesus. I will wait on YOU, God.
