Food For Thought…Tired of Waiting

tired of waiting

Greg Long has a song called “In the Waiting”, the chorus is as follows:
” I want a peace beyond my understanding
I want to feel it fall like rain
In the middle of my hurting
I want to feel Your arms as they surround me
And let me know that it’s okay
To be here in this place
Resting in the peace that only comes
In the waiting”

God, it seems, loves to teach us lessons that involves waiting. We wait for the promises to come, for the pain to pass, for our loved ones to come to know Him and be saved, for our own transforming process to be completed. All of life it seems is waiting. When we were little we were always looking forward in eager anticipation to the next mark of life’s achievement. Always wanting to be older “so we can do,…” Well now we are older and we are wanting to slow the clock. Time is not our friend anymore and our patience of waiting seems to wane.

Lord, forgive us our impatience. We know that you hold back no good thing from your children. Everything is made beautiful and perfect in your time and our lives are no exception.

Mark 13:33 “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” Lord, you are our eager anticipation and if you are not forgive us and wash is that we may desire you once again.
