Day 35

“The beauty in waiting”“

As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit, and that’s why you’re worshiped. I pray to God-my life a prayer-and wait for what he’ll say and do. My life’s on the line before God, my Lord, waiting and watching till morning, waiting and watching till morning. O Israel, wait and watch for God-with God’s arrival comes love, with God’s arrival comes generous redemption. No doubt about it, he’ll redeem Israel, buy back Israel from captivity to sin. (Psalm 130:4-8 MSG)”The waiting room, a land where time seemingly stands still. It is a place where life is put on hold. In my doctor’s office, it feels like hours have passed, and yet when I look at my watch, it’s been only 20 minutes. When we are in the waiting room, it seems as if progress has come to a screeching halt.”-Mark WheelerWe all know that “waiting” is a large part of our Christian journey on this earth. It’s actually one of The main reason for serving  as frequently  in Gods kingdom as we do, because we are waiting to be raptured by The Lord and we are telling the whole world about HIS return. Waiting is the journey that lies between the problem and our promise or miracle. We wait for blessings, our children to be saved, husbands to be saved, callings to unfold, family members to be released, physical healing, emotional healing, finances, we even wait to be with our loved ones after they are taken home to be with The Lord, and we are waiting for the coming of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.But for a moment….. lets take our eyes off the waiting and let’s take a good long look at the beauty in process or we will say the beauty in waiting. As women we hold on to promises for our children or families and when we are single we are always deeply and anxiously looking towards the future.  As we wait it seems as though the progress and process has come to a stop, but in our spirit realm it truly is only the beginning. It’s where God begins to work behind the scenes.I have come to realize more and more in this journey that what we do, say and how we react in the “waiting period” is not only a reflection of our intimate relationship with God, but it also gives fruit in our future.A special scripture deep in my heart is Isaiah 40:31“But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.”If you take a moment to really take in this scripture it is not referring to after the math of the problem but our present state, “But those who wait upon God…” The moment when waiting seems long, our moments are dark and our silence seems quieter. It is then that we are challenged to go against everything we feel and follow and believe in what we know is true which is the power of God.It is an unseen reality that we have to recognize and when we do we will face our problems and even everyday life in a new appreciation, drive and zeal and that is truly the beauty in waiting. Has we finish this fast strong know that Waiting for the breakthrough is only the surface of what is yet to come just hold on and smile.“Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God. Give her everything she deserves! Festoon her life with praises!”
