“Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.”
– James 5:7
Do you really desire something at this moment? There is something about that time of waiting, right? Maybe you want to get remarried, or you are looking for a new job. Or maybe you just moved to a new town and you haven’t met anybody. Maybe you want to start a business or you have this thing on your heart to do. Whatever it is, a lot of times there is this in-between waiting where it just feels like it is taking so long. And we can’t seem to get our mind or our heart to think about anything else, because we want this thing so bad. And I want to just tell you: keep pursuing that thing. Don’t give up on it. Just trust God’s timing.
Thank you Lord, for your unfailing love. Please remind me each day, that you are with me in this time of waiting. You will never leave my side. Help me to trust your plan with my life.
How do you feel in times of waiting?
I am waiting for a lot of things.
