"and what is he doing?"
It's a rough quote, but it is running through my head because I am waiting another day, and have been waiting this last week. You'd think I'd have become very patient during all of this waiting. I have not. I've been very restless.
Earlier this week, I thought I would write this post from the point of hopeful expectation in a sure thing. How I've grown in my spiritual understanding of waiting. Instead, it's from the perspective of worry, nervous prayer and the feeling of futility.
So I BibleGateway'd "wait on the Lord."
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God.
I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry.
I wait for your salvation, O LORD, and I follow your commands.
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
Apparently God has something to say about waiting upon him. I must admit, it is hard work. It was much easier to worry and fret this afternoon.
But I'm praying.
