“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalms 27:14 NIV
We started out on our journey over a month ago. Now, as we are in our permanent place, I’m learning, yet again, what it is to be in the waiting. I’m getting another lesson in patience.
Patience hasn’t always come easy for me. It has taken the power and strength of God, for me to learn, gain, this beautiful fruit. It has taken understanding, and living out, the love of God. Love is, after all, patient.
I have found myself struggling. Struggling with what comes next? I mean, I’m here, where I’m supposed to be, yet unclear about what comes next.
Please don’t get me wrong – I’ve been blessed beyond measure! My life has shifted in ways I could have only dreamed of. Yet and still, I find myself here, in the waiting.
Now, I know there is much to do. I had my season of rest. As we get settled in, there is much to do. I know that in the waiting, there is work to do – work to be done. And this is where patience comes in.
Patience and trust. I must wait on the Lord in this place. I must trust that He is here with me, in the waiting. Waiting on Jesus takes courage, strength even. No matter how hard the road seems, I know that it is worth it.
So, for as long as I must remain, I will stay here in the waiting.
