I came across this scripture recently and it filled my soul like manna filled the Israelites bellies. The prophet is speaking of Christ coming to fulfill the law. He tells the people to wait for it…it will come. And Christ came. Years later, but He indeed came! As we wait for the Lord the bring children into our home, I wait with the same expectancy knowing that His timing will not delay. This eagerness and expectant heart for children has pointed me to the Father’s second coming. I wait patiently for the day when there will be no more pain and sorrow in this world and when I will live in perfect peace in paradise.
Wait for it with me sweet friend. Wait well for that thing you have been waiting for and wait for Father to return!
We sang this song at worship tonight. Indeed he has given me new life. Indeed he’s the giver of all life, my eyes are lifted…waiting for life. To you alone belongs the highest praise.
“No, I cannot help with _____________. This is a difficult season of my life. I’m having to be still and quiet before the Lord, trusting in his plan over mine, and this means having to say no to things I would normally say yes to…”
I spoke these words to a woman today. In pursuit of quietness, I have said no to leading Bible studies, facebook, over-working myself, tv shows, & extra activities. Having said no to so much, I have been able to say yes to praying continually, falling in love with the word, and deeper intimacy with my Father.
While waiting in line at TJ Maxx I held three books in my arms; I Love You, I Love You Little One, and Baby Love for a friend’s soon delivery. As I waited in line, my heart started yearning for a child to read I Love You books to at bedtime. The Lord was quick to remind me of this verse and I was quickly comforted in the moment.
