Waiting

Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. ~Psalm 27:14 KJV

I am sure now I'll see God's goodness in the exuberant earth. Stay with God! Take heart. Don't quit. I'll say it again: Stay with God. ~Psalm 27: 13–14 The Message


Waiting on God requires the willingness to bear uncertainty, to carry within oneself the unanswered question, lifting the heart to God about it whenever it intrudes upon one's thoughts. ~Elisabeth Elliot
One of the greatest strains in life is the strain of waiting for God. ~Oswald Chambers
~Grand Watching and Waiting~


We are all waiting on the Lord, whether or not we realize it. Most of us do —realize it. There is a need and so the request has been submitted and we wait. There is a wish, a heart's desire, and we request permission and wait for the response. Some have been waiting for years. I have. Have you?

Waiting on the Lord is often like watching the timer while the cookies bake. When the time is right, God is ready. Only then will the promise come and not one second sooner.  

A blessed Sunday to you...
