Day after day
the phone doesn’t ring
nothing in the mail
not even an email or a text.
You pray and give it to God
remembering all His many promises
you might even sing a praise song or two
but then that thought comes again
is it taking so long?
I have been in the school of waiting for many years of my life.
Waiting to have children
Waiting for a counseling internship
Waiting to hear from a publisher about a piece I had submitted.
Waiting for a check that I’ve desperately needed to pay some bills.
Along with waiting
What if ………..?
Did Abraham ring his hands day after day as he waited for the promised son to be born?
Did Mary become sick with anxiety as she waited to see
how the birth of Jesus would possibly take place?
I don’t think so.
No, in the midst of their thoughts and curiosities about how, when, and where
God would do what He said
They had peace
The Lord of all Heaven and Earth
Would do what He said He would do.
Yes, they received His gift of peace
The peace that passes all understanding.
all too often in our fast paced, noisy world
we do not sit still enough to receive His Peace.
His peace is stronger than all our doubts and fears. It’s not like the peace this world gives.
Why His Peace can still those stormy waves and quiet the raging winds.
His Peace has not changed.
He still quiets stormy hearts that reaches out to Him for help.
Are you waiting today for something?
Is your heart weary and worn?
Reach out to Him
The One Who longs to draw you close to His Heart.
Be still in His Presence and receive His gift of peace today.
He’ll never disappoint you
although the wait maybe very long.
He didn’t disappoint Abraham
He didn’t delay one minute more for Noah.
and it came to pass.
Yes, God’s time came.
It will come for you to, my friend.
Remember His Faithfulness and Love.
Let this time of waiting be turned to a testimony of worship
that nothing can shake.
