"Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!" Psalm 27:14
"Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for Him;Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass." Psalm 37:7
"But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
Are you waiting on the Lord for anything in your life right now? Do you find it difficult to wait? I'm waiting right now, trying to have the patience to allow God to unfold the path in front of me instead of leaping onto the path of my own choosing.
Its in regards to me working...or not working. I don't have any contentment just 'being at home' but there are many things I could be doing from here. I just don't know which way to follow yet. And financially, more is needed from me so that the entire burden of our lives isn't placed on my husband & his business.
So I wait but I'm not sure what I'm waiting for.
I have been offered jobs that I have turned down. I have applied for jobs that have already been filled. I have done some photography. I have queried some writing articles. I have taken some leisure time. I have spent hours on the computer researching ideas. I have wasted time. I have used time wisely. I have spent more time with my husband...but he has spent more hours working. I have tried to balance the day. I am hungry. I am weary. I have eaten. I have napped. I have exercised early. I have slept in later.
And I still wait. And I will continue to wait, to watch & to research. I will try to have the patience to trust that God knows what He is doing.
