Do you find yourself waiting (and waiting and waiting) on the Lord? Are you asking Him: “How long is too long Lord? Have you forgotten me way down here on earth? Can you even see the tiny speck that is me?”
Some days I get tired of waiting. I have needs and wants, and that’s when I try to will God to make something happen – fast! Thing is, nagging can tire a girl out and drag her down until she’s so weak she can barely move.
Thankfully Isaiah says that the Lord will renew our strength; not only that, we will walk and not faint! Goodbye to being weary and stressed out or frustrated in addition to a lot of those other confusing things that sometimes accompany life!
But what should we be doing while we wait? Well we can:
- Immerse ourselves more in the His word
- Try to help someone else
- Look for ways to be a better friend, spouse, parent, employee, co-worker
- Always see the silver lining on the grey clouds up in an overcast sky
My featured photo shows a beautiful blue sky complete with fluffy white clouds over an awesome beach bordering amazing aquamarine water in Barbados. I took this picture one Saturday en route while taking my elderly aunt from a doctor’s appointment back to her home.
Does it always look like this in Barbados? No! But even when it rains, if we wait long enough on the Lord it sure will! So what will it be for you today? Will you lie down and die or rise up and be triumphant? Will you allow life to tire you out or will you stand strong and be patient?
The choice is yours … but remember: it’s always a beautiful day to wait on the Lord!
