“Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love. oh Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.”
I do not like to wait. Phone gets slow….. just get a new one. Internet speed not fast enough…. time for an upgrade. The world we live in just moves faster and faster; it can be rather exhausting.
But David says that our souls wait for the Lord.
Waiting is not easy. It takes discipline (which is especially hard for this extrovert who just wants to jump from one thing to another. Just as me how many books I started last month…). Waiting on the Lord, however, it is worth it. Over the last few months God has forced me to wait in a few areas on my life.
The beautiful thing about waiting on the Lord is that He always comes through. His love is unending and He is faithful regardless of our lack of faith (or patience).
Exciting things are on the way in so many areas of my life, but for now I wait. I am accepting in a little more each day. Maybe we can call that progress??
Here’s to more trust in the steadfast love of the Lord.
