How can I be thankful for waiting? Not in my DNA. Certainly not in the neuron connectivity. And yet … that’s where I find myself today.
Come with me for a walk through my cluster of thoughts, will you?
As life would have it and as GOD has purposed it, I am finding myself traveling through a variety of seasons — almost seamlessly. And as this journey moves me forward, there are those poignant moments where I am having to ‘park and pause’ to consider my ways.
I have thought about my life, and I have directed my feet back to your written instructions. Psalm 119:59 God’s Word Translation
It is in these moments that I have the opportunity to reflect on what is requiring my ‘attention.’
My GOD knows me … He knows how I can become distracted in the highways of my thoughts. So, in the waiting times of my seasons, as if in slo-mo … y’all get what I’m trying to describe to you? Just slo-mo the frame and move like a sloth for a span of a few seconds …
It is in these waiting times that He Whispers His Love — through reading of His Word, I can receive the most revelatory answers to prayer. In these waiting times I can see what treasures are right in front of me — that otherwise would have been overlooked because I was seeking ‘something greater’ than my mind could imagine. In these precious waiting times I can hear the words I need to hear — from the people He has placed in my sphere to speak the wisdom I need to embrace.
Yes, this day I am thankful for waiting. Because when waiting translates to waiting on the Lord, it is in this moment that I experience the extravagant love of the Lord. So, I will quiet my soul and wait on Him Who will fill it to overflowing!
For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For my hope is from Him. Psalm 65:5 Amplified Bible Translation
Have you need to wait for something that you’ve placed at the Master’s Feet? I encourage you to write it in your Journal and lift it up to Him in confident prayer. Write (right) where you are. You need to see those words, Sweet Friend, as they flow from heart through ink onto paper.
As you sit in the waiting room of your soul … look over your shoulder, Sister, I’m in the seat beside you. Mind if I lean up next to you and we can hold each other up for the time that we’re here? I could use some faithful and tender company.
I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~
