on my heart today is waiting.
I'm in a season of waiting right now
(Justin and I, our family......)
and I'll admit I can go nuts--pretty much at any moment
because of the wait.ing.
who likes to wait?!
mercy, not me.
but I've noticed that it's a theme running throughout the Bible.
and (I'll admit) that does not thrill me. at all.
because really, aren't all of us waiting for something (seemingly) all the time?
so maybe this is something I should really get better at
this waiting thing.
but I just get so frustrated with waiting
and my desire for instant gratification
that surely I'm not pleasing God with
(as if I really have any...)
I just don't want to jump ahead of God
and His perfect plan
(I suck at waiting)
and so I pray
what else can I really do?
isn't that what God wants anyway
us to realize we have nothing in us but Him
that creates beauty and strength?!
it all rules supreme in my heart...
if I allow it.
but God, in me, through me, refining me
forms a heart that can wait patiently
for the blessings and goodness and perfect plan He's got ahead
and so, if when you read this--
you think. wow. she really needs to get her act together
but then you see that God
God is the master of my imperfect, struggling heart
I've clumsily accomplished exactly what I wanted to.
God in me
for the plans He has yet to reveal to my family
suddenly kinda makes it sound exciting, doesn't it?!
wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
have a SUPER weekend, my sweet blogreaders!
